E-PORTAL: PORTAL_CSS Checks Accessible EOAW_HISTORY_VIEW, EOAW_REDIRECT When it Should not (Doc ID 1984198.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2016

Symptoms

On : 8.51 version, Portal Technology

It appears the PORTAL_CSS does not check if at least one page under a component is not hidden from navigation, before recursively adding folder permissions to the PSPRSMPERM table. Once PORTAL_CSS is run, if there are only hidden items selected under a component, like EOAW_HISTORY_VIEW & EOAW_REDIRECT for instance, the folder still becomes visible.

It is expected that the PORTAL_CSS program will not make 'Accessible' when it should not

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Add Menu EOAW_APPROVAL_WORKFLOW to a permission list.
2. Select All for Components: EOAW_HISTORY_VIEW, EOAW_REDIRECT
3. Save Permission List.
4. Open Menu EOAW_APPROVAL_WORKFLOW.
5. Next to components EOAW_HISTORY_VIEW, EOAW_REDIRECT click "View Content References for this Component".
6. Verify the "Accessible" check box is not checked.
7. Run PORTAL_CSS from PeopleTools>Portal>Portal Security Sync.
8. Open Permission list you added component rights mentioned above in steps 1-2.
9. Repeat steps 4-6. This time "Accessible" is checked.
