Error description

  • Snapshot 1 has an activity. Snapshot 2 deleted this activity and
    created another activity. The Process Performance scoreboard
    tries to lookup up the activity name from snapshot1, however, no
     longer finding this activity it displays <Dynamic Acitivity>.
    
    In Process Center environment, only the most recent tip is
    looked at, and if the activity flow object id cannot be found,
    it gets displayed as <DynamicActivity>. In Process Server
    environment, only the default snapshot is looked at, and if the
    activity flow object id cannot be found, it gets displayed as
    <DynamicActivity>.

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The Process Performance dashboard code attempted to look up the
    name of an activity (instance) from only the activity
    definitions present in the tip snapshot (in a Process Center
    environment) or the default snapshot (in a Process Server
    environment), using an internal activity identifier as the
    key, and assumed the activity was from a dynamic linked
    process if it could not find the activity definition in
    the snapshot, displaying the label <Dynamic Activity>.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The activity name lookup code has been modified to search all
    snapshots for the matching activity definition, resolving the
    issue.
    
    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
