APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Participant Groups can be defined with reference to user
    attribute
    values to contain users who match the defined criteria.
    If a user attribute value is updated for a user AND
    update-dynamic-groups-on-uad-change is set to true (default),
    then all
    dynamic groups may need to be refreshed.
    While this already works for changes throught Process Admin
    Console,
    this APAR enables refresh for changes via REST API
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/user/user1?action=setPreference&key=<uadName>&v
    alue=<ua
    dValue>
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • While updating user attribute values via Process Admin Console
    is also refreshing all dynamic groups, this was not enabled for
    the REST API.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    When changing user attribute values via REST API
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/user/user1?action=setPreference&key=
    {uadName}&value={uadValue} then no dynamic groups are updated
    even when update-dynamic-groups-on-uad-change is enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this interim fix also updating user attribute values via
    REST API will consider update-dynamic-groups-on-uad-change and
    update all dynamic groups accordingly.
