Error description

  • When using the REST API call "Send Message" on the process
    server with an intermediate message event (IME), the UCA is not
    picked up. JMS is being used to post messages to the BPM Event
    Manager as detailed in the product documenation.  Adding in the
    optional 'snapshot' parameter allows
    the UCA to complete and
    consume the message If this parameter is omitted, this call
    sends the message to the tip version of the process
    application. In a Process Server environment, there is no tip
    version. There are only default applications and named
    snapshots. With no "snapshot" in the <eventmsg> message, the
    IME is not picked up.
    

Local fix

  • Specify the name of the snapshot in the <event> section of the
    message.
    

Problem summary

  • Some REST API calls work fine in Process Center, but not in
    Process Server environment.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    The customer uses a series of REST API calls to navigate
    through their process instances. One of them, 'Send Message'
    API call, offers an optional 'snapshot' parameter.  If this
    parameter is omitted, this call sends the message to the
    tip version of the process application.  But, in a Process
    Server environment, there is no tip version.  Thus, nothing
    happens.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This interim fix now sends the message to the start event node
    of the default snapshot, and to the interim event nodes of all
    snapshots of the specified process application.
