APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Dynamic groups can be defined in terms of expressions including
    user attribute conditions.
    Upon changes in user attribute values, user membership in a
    dynamic group may change as well. Therefore, dynamic groups
    are refreshed upon changing user attribute values.
    
    However, the trigger refreshing the correponding group entry in
    the Group Member Cache uses an incorrect group id.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When executing a REST API call to update a user attribute,
    refreshing dynamic groups is triggered.  However, this refresh
    is not correctly reflected when performing actions subject to
    authorization, e.g. claiming a task.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    Dynamic groups can be defined in terms of expressions including
    user attribute conditions. Upon changes in user attribute
    values, user membership in a dynamic group may change as well.
    Therefore, dynamic groups are refreshed upon changing user
    attribute values. However, the trigger refreshing the
    correponding group entry in the Group Member Cache uses an
    incorrect group id. As a result, the user is not reflected as
    being bember of the dynamic group, when performing operations
    such as claiming a task.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The trigger to refreshing dynamic groups has been corrected to
    use the correct group id, such that the correct entry in the
    Group Member Cache is replaced.
