After upgrading to 5.1.3, some space lists show no spaces

We have a test upgrade from 4.0.4 to 5.1.3. In the test upgrade, no spaces from the old version show in the list of "Site Spaces", although when I browse to the Spaces page, they are all there. In addition, the "Spaces in categories" macro shows no spaces, but the Space List macro lists them.

If I add a space to the 5.1.3 test, that space alone shows in the list on the default landing page. They do not show in the Spaces in categories list.

Anyone know what is going on?

most comonly this is caused by indexing, so you may want to rebuild indices from scratch:

If that does not help, maybe the space status field is not containing the correct value.

Can you query it by:

select * from SPACES;

if the space status field contains anything but 'CURRENT' for the missing spaces, most likely this is the cause of the problem.

Kind regards,


The content re-indexing didn't help, sadly. (I tried both rebuilding the index in the GUI and the full reindexing where you shut down the wiki and delete the index.)

I have to find someone to help me with the db query.

All of the space show CURRENT, so that is not the problem.

Any other suggestions?

same problem here. upgraded to 5.1.3 in test enviornment and no Spaces listed when clicking on the 'Spaces' nav at the top. if you can get to the dashboard, it lists all the spaces ok. some users have a specific default Space set in their profile which makes it impossible to get to the dashboard since the breadcrumb trail was removed.

Just to clarify, we (weirdly) have the opposite problem: the Spaces nav page works just great, and the default dashboard spaces widget says there are no spaces. The dashboard widget does list spaces created since the upgrade, though.
