  • GraphQL


If data-engine is not used follow these next steps:

  1. Use Blacklisting OSGi Bundles and Components to blacklist bundle.
  2. From the Gogo console stop and start the
    Liferay Foundation - Liferay Portal Vulcan - Impl bundle.

If data-engine is used you should ask for a hotfix that includes LPS-113149.
