When a new snapshot is installed (deployed) to a connected Process Server, some snapshot-specific runtime state is copied from the source snapshots to the new snapshot. This includes Environment Variables, Exposed Process Values (EPVs) and Participant Group membership. A similar process occurs when using the Sync Settings feature to synchronize EPV values between snapshots. For EPVs, only values with an Effective Time that occur in the future are migrated to the target snapshot. This may cause problems for tasks that are not using the "In-Progress Tasks Use New Values" feature, as the value seen by the task may change to the default value in the new snapshot.
USERS AFFECTED: IBM BPM administrators PROBLEM SUMMARY: (one line description) During the installation of a snapshot, Exposed Process Values (EPVs) are not migrated correctly. PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION: (Also, Please identify the root cause and any possible steps that could have been taken in order to prevent this APAR. ) When a new snapshot is installed to an online process server, the snapshot-specific runtime state is copied from the source snapshots to the new snapshot. This state includes environment variables, EPVs, and Participant Group membership information. This issue also arises when administrators use the Process Admin Console to synchronize snapshots. Only EPVs with an effective time that occurs in the future are migrated to the target snapshot, which might cause problems for tasks that are not configured to use the "In-Progress Tasks Use New Values" feature. These problems occur because the value might change from the current value (either default or explicitly set value) that is defined in the source snapshot to the default in the new snapshot.
A fix for IBM BPM V22.214.171.124 merges all EPVs into the target snapshot so that tasks that use the "In-Progress Tasks Use New Values" feature continue to work as intended. On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search for JR47706. After you select the product group, product, installed version, and platform, click Continue and then select APAR or SPR, enter JR47706, and click Continue.
