    The following harmless information message is cluttering the
    SystemOut.log file:
    AuthChallenge I
    org.apache.commons.httpclient.auth.AuthChallengeProcessor
    selectAuthScheme basic authentication scheme selected
    The message is recorded for each Process Server heartbeat,
    which is often configured every 10 seconds.
    This issue occurs because the heartbeat from Process Server to
    Process Center used the wrong authentication setting.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that ensures that the
    heartbeat uses the correct authentication setting .
