WebSphere Portal Bug: More User-friendly Error For Creating Workflow Page Without Project In Manage Pages Portlet

We have raised a PMR with IBM (#72284,000,834).

A better feedback message is needed to inform the user that he/she need to be in a project in order to create a page from a workflow page template in Manage Pages portlet.

How to replicate:

  • Before proceed, ensure that you are using WebSphere Portal CF 9 and above and there is a workflow page template.
  • Login to Portal Administration page (http://<hostname>/myportal/Administration).
  • Go to Manage Pages (Portal User Interface > Manage Pages).
  • Click on “New Page from…” button.
  • Select the workflow page template *IMPORTANT* and click on the “OK” button.
  • A “EJPAS0017E: Unable to create <page title>”¬†will be displayed, leaving the user trying to figure where he/she went wrong.
