After WebCenter Content and WebCenter Portal installation, you must configure them to work together. But when you try to create a connection between them, this connection does not work. This happens because WebCenter Content 11gPS7 uses the new FrameworkFolders as standard framework folder, but the WebCenter Portal 11gPS7 still uses Folders_g. To make them work together, you need to change this setting within the WebCenter Content.

Go to WebCenter Content (http://localhost:16200/cs).

This happens due to the type of folder framework, WebCenter Portal uses Folders_g, and WebCenter Content uses FrameworkFolders. We need to change the WebCenter Content to use Folders_g. Go to WebCenter Content, navigate to Administration | Server Admin | Component Manager, and click Advanced Component Manager.
