Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Business process modeler or tester using    *
    *                  BPM REST APIs that call the "current        *
    *                  state" (v1/process/<id>) REST API to        *
    *                  retrieve process instance details.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The response structure returned by      *
    *                      the "current state" REST API does not   *
    *                      contain the variables associated with   *
    *                      linked sub-processes described within   *
    *                      the execution tree section of the       *
    *                      ProcessDetails structure.               *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The BPMREST "current state" API is used to retrieve the
    current state of a process instance.   The "ProcessDetails"
    response structure includes the variables associated with the
    top-level BPD instance specified in the request URL, but it
    does not include variables associated with linked
    sub-processes or tasks described within the "executionTree"
    field of the structure.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The issue is fixed by introducing a new "variables" field to
    the ExecutionTreeNode structure within the ProcessDetails
    response which contains a map of the variables associated with
    that level of the execution tree.
