Work Baskets with many tasks in it need to execute updates on assignments asynchronously. Currently, this update is done too often what leads to the situation that multiple asynchronous updates try to run in parallel. This iFix optimizes the detection so only necessary updates are executed. Additionally, it allows asynchronous updates to run in parallel
The value for which asynchronous processing is used can be increased to the number of tasks in the work basket. To do this the HTM Container Custom Property WorkItem.UpdateSlice (the default is 500) needs to be changed.
When updating people assignments on work baskets with a large number of tasks, the following exception is encountered: com.ibm.task.api.UnexpectedFailureException: CWTKA0003E: Unexpected exception during execution. java.lang.RuntimeException: WorkItem update in progress The update on this WorkBasket is rolled back. PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION: This interim fix first improves the detection of changes in people assignments passed in via REST API. Before this interim fix, unchanged people assignments were seen as updates by mistake. This issue itself is only a performance issue, but leads to real problems in combination with the next issue. The second issue exists if changes to multiple people assignments happen and the work basket contains many tasks, two independent asynchronous WorkItem update operation are started to be able to split the work into multiple database transactions. This must not happen, as a WorkItem update operation must run only once per deployment target at one time.
The interim fix collects all people assignment changes within that WorkBasket update operation and runs them as one asynchonous WorkItem update operation.
