Site initializer fails to process fragments in pages when virtual instance is created with Portal Instance API


    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Make sure the site-initializer/site-initializer-masterclass is deployed.
    2. Go to Virtual Instances > Add Virtual Instance
    3. Fill in all the fields
    4. Select Masterclass in the drop down to initialize the instance
    5. Wait until the instance is initialized
    6. Assert that no errors are shown in the logs
    7. Now create a new virtual instance with the same initializer, using the portal instances API:
    curl -X 'POST' 'http://localhost:8080/o/headless-portal-instances/v1.0/portal-instances' -d $'{"domain": "insurance.com", "portalInstanceId": "masterclass", "siteInitializerKey": "com.liferay.site.initializer.masterclass", "virtualHost": "www.bootcamp.com"}' --header 'Content-Type: application/json' -u '[email protected]:test'

    Expected behavior: Logs show no errors

    Current behavior: Console show errors

    Technical Details:

    • When the fragments of the master pages are processed by the PortletFragmentEntryProcessor, the HTML of the widgets is obtain with portletFragmentRenderer.renderPortlet. This method obtains the httpServletResponse from the fragmentEntryProcessorContext.
    • When creating a virtual instance in the UI, the response exists
    • When creating a virtual instance with the headless API, the response is null. As a result, the master page is not processed, and the virtual instance default site (initialized with the site initializer) fails to render correctly.
