Synopsis : Configure WebCenter PS5 with WebCenter Content - Good Example

In a typical business scenario we often need to display assets like pages , images from Webcenter Content in our portal applications.  WebCenter Portal applications provides you a way to integrate content through Jdeveloper where you can browse and consume the assets from Webcenter content . 

In the latest PS5 version , there is a small change to enable this feature . If this is not done properly you would see that the connection is successful but it doesn't allow you to browse through the assets .

SEVERE: Could not list contents of folder with ID = dCollectionID:-1
oracle.stellent.ridc.protocol.ServiceException: No service defined for COLLECTION_DISPLAY.

Don't worry we are here to help you out on this :)  .  Read on for the solution here

Technical : Configure WebCenter PS5 with WebCenter Content - Good Example

Read Intro for this post and understand the problem here

Solution  : To integrate Jdeveloper with WebCenter Content PS5 and browse through the folders , we need to enable "folders_g" features instead of "Framework Folders" . Detailed steps below .



  1. Login to Webcenter content using admin credentials

    https://<hostname>:<port number>/cs

  2. Go to "Administration" menu and click on "Admin Server"
  3.  In the newly opened browser , click on 'Component Manager' in the left navigation menu .
  4. On the right hand side , you should see "Advanced Component Manager" , click on it .
  5. You will now see a list of enabled and disabled features . Disable "Framework Folders" and enable "folders_g" folders . Restart the server .
  6. There you go ! . You should have a successful connection and you should be able to traverse through the contribution folders from Jdeveloper.


I am posting a few pics to help you navigate the steps .

Configure WebCenter PS5 with WebCenter Content - Bad Example

I opened JDeveloper, created a content repository connection with all the required fields. While testing the connection, the connection became successful. But while navigating to the Webcenter Content Connection, I am ( Always use past tense ) getting the following error.

Notice the inconsistency in the image resolutions

SEVERE: Could not list contents of folder with ID = dCollectionID:-1
oracle.stellent.ridc.protocol.ServiceException: No service defined for COLLECTION_DISPLAY.



To solve the issue, please find the following the steps in Webcenter Content.


1. Login into webcenter content : https://<hostname>:<port number>/cs

2. Click on 'Administration' and select 'Admin Server'

3. This will open a new window in browser, please select 'Component Manager'.
4. In the right side window, please click on 'Advanced component manager'

5. We can see all the enabled and disabled features.

The main problem for this error is folders_g is not enabled and Framework folders might have enabled. But for creating a connection with webcenter portal framework or with webcenter spaces, we need

folders_g, then only we will get Contribution folder.

6. come to the enabled feature session, select Framework folders and disable it.

7. Come to the disabled feature session, select folders_g in the list and enable it.
8. Restart the Webcenter content node.
9. Login into webcenter content system, go to 'Browse Content' menu. If we are able to see 'Contribution Folder' the problem is solved. ( Avoid dubious sentences ) We can configure webcenter content with Webcenter portal framework or with webcenter spaces.
