Executing "Clean Up Orphaned Theme Portlet Preferences" from Server Admin/Resources removes all widget configuration for any widget on a content page or display page template

    Details

      Description

      It is understood that "Clean Up Orphaned Theme Portlet Preferences" (accessed via Server Administration, "Resources" tab), was a tool used to enable the deletion of portlet configurations for portlets embedded in a theme (note - I do not know if it should have other impacts beyond this).

      However there are unintended impacts on Widgets deployed on Content Pages and Display Page Templates.

      Expected Behaviour

      • There should be no changes to the configuration of widgets deployed to Content Pages and Display Page Templates

      Observed Behaviour

      • All configuration from every widget deployed to every Content Page and every Display Page Template are removed

      Examples from Content Page from Alexandria (sales.liferay.com) are attached (the correct page is from Production - which has not had the function run, the broken page is from a local backup)

      Steps to Reproduce

      • Add a Content Page
      • Deploy a Widget to that Page and configure it (e.g. Navigation widget with specific display template selected, Asset Publisher with specific content selection and display template)
      • Access Server Administration via the control menu, scroll to the bottom of the resources tab and execute "Clean Up Orphaned Theme Portlet Preferences"
      • Observe that configurations are removed
