Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Users attempting to utilize the "step       *
    *                  name" in the REST API response.             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: REST API response does not include      *
    *                      the step name                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    During runtime REST API does not search recursively through
    sub-processes to look-up the step which the current process is
    at.  Therefore, the step name is not returned in the response.
    The issue can be reproduced by utilizing the REST API -> Start
    Task API.
    This issue is not reproducible in v8.0.1.0 and up.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code changes have been made to recursively look inside current
    process for the step details and produce the proper response
    which includes the step name.  A similar fix, JR46419 also
    resolves a step name issue but is specific to the Resume
    Service API.  Customers should apply both JR46419 and JR47991
    to resolve the step name issue for both APIs.
    A fix for 7.5.1.1 is available on Fix Central:
