WCM Syndicator is a key feature in WCM and it is used quite often. There are some cases that arise where the WCM administrator creates a syndication relationship, but then find that the Syndicator protlet is not displaying the list of syndicators. Basically, the syndicator portlet is blank as no syndicators are listed.
Check the WCMConfigService property for "deployment.subscriberOnly" and ensure it is set to "false". For a server in a syndicator role, it must be "false".
If this property is set as deployment.subscriberOnly = true , it means your server is only in role of a subscriber, so it will not function as a syndicator. In such a configuration, the syndicator portlet will not display the list of syndicators.
1. Select the appropriate console, depending on your environment:
If running standalone, use the local administrative console. If installed in a cluster, use the console of the deployment manager.
2. Start the administrative console by entering the following in the URL location field of a Web browser:
where example.com is the name of your server and admin_port is the port assigned to the administrative console.
3. In the navigation click Resources -> Resources Environment -> Resource Environment Providers.
4. Locate the WCM WCMConfigService and ensure the property "deployment.subscriberOnly" is set to "false" on your syndicator server.
I hope this will be helpful.
