    details that are displayed in the right pane.  The generated
    URL, however, contains am unencoded '|' (pipe) character,
    which must be encoded per RFC 3986 for URI syntax (i. e.
    replaced by the escape sequence '%7C').

    ****************************************************************
    The URL issued to query REST services to retrieve details for
    a task contains an unencoded '|' (pipe) character, which is
    illegal per RFC 3986.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JavaScript code that is responsible for generating the URL
    was modified to include the escape sequence for the '|'
    character, "%7C", instead of the '|' character.
    
    An interim fix for Business Process Manager Version 8.0.1.0 has
    been published to Fix Central.  Please refer to the separate
    file that is automatically downloaded with the interim fix
    for prerequisite information and installation/uninstallation
    instructions.
