    ****************************************************************
    When a profile is being upgraded from IBM BPM V8.5 to IBM BPM
    V8.5.0.1, the REST service provider is not updated correctly
    if the source IBM BPM V8.5 is multiple deployment environment
    (DE) setup. During the profile upgrade process, the REST
    Services Gateway application that was in the cell scope in IBM
    BPM V8.5 is removed and redeployed in each DE with a new name:
    REST Services Gate-way_<deployment_target>.
    The corresponding REST service provider should be assigned to
    correct deployment target correctly. However, the REST service
    provider for each DE environment is not updated correctly. The
    admin con-sole, which users access by clicking Services > Rest
    services > Rest service providers, shows that the REST service
    provider for all DEs is assigned to the same deployment target
    and REST service provider with the old application name,  &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172; &#147;
    Services Gateway, &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;  &#189; still listed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that assigns the REST service provider for
    each DE to its correct deployment target and removes the REST
    service provider with the old application name.
