WebCenter Portal – Formerly WebCenter Spaces

Before moving to something more technical I wanted to share with you another feature from the latest version of WebCenter.

As you might already know, there have been some naming convention changes for this version and one of the most important was renaming Spaces to Portal. This change didn’t come alone, now you don’t create spaces you create portals and portal templates.  Another add on is the Portal Builder.


The creation of a Portal is not really that different from creating a Space in the previous version, you can select from OOTB templates, or create your owns:

In the  final step, there is a new step to create your pages from an input-text, you can include links and system pages:

To create a page hierarchy, use +.
Example: Page 1, +Page 2, +Page 3, ++Page 4 produces this hierarchy:e

  • Page 1
    • Page 2
    • Page 3
      • Page 4


But now let me show the interesting part that was added to this version. You can design the Portal for different MOBILE DEVICES:

There are some more interesting features, but I’ll be posting about them in different posts.

Note: This is not available from WebCenter Portal Framework.

WebCenter Content – Mobile App


With the latest  WebCenter Release  a mobile app was released, and yes this time  Android is included  as well.

Yo can get the Android app from here:  Google Store

For IOS: Apple Store

Main differences between both apps:

  • Main menu for IOS contains an extra menu (“Recently view”)
  • Default sorting for Android is based on Ascending Date
  • Default sorting for IOS is based on Descending Date
  • Extra metadata field is included in IOS detail document view (“Path”)

This is the original search from WebCenter Content:

OWCC Search

Here you have some screenshots of both apps:
