Error description

  • If a search alias variable was made searchable in a new
    snapshot, When doing in-flight instance migration, the new
    search alias variables are not updated in the database and is
    not searchable. Currently instance migration does not update
    the execution context andhence, the new search alias is not
    inserted.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) V7.5.1   *
    *                  Advanced, Standard, and Express             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The business data search alias is not   *
    *                      updated after an instance is migrated.  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    If a variable is not set as searchable in the source snapshot,
    but it is set as searchable in the target snapshot because
     ¢â‚¬ “Available in search ¢â‚¬  ½ is selected in Process Design
    the
    Business Data Search section of the Variables tab), the search
    alias name that is given to the variable when it was switched
    to searchable type is not updated when the instance is
    migrated.
    As a result, the business data alias is not available for you
    to view or use when you are in IBM Process Portal.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V7.5.1.1 that introduces a
    configuration property that, when set, always saves the
    searchable variables.
    
    Complete the following steps:
    
    1.If the instance was already migrated, migrate the instance
    back to its original snapshot.
    2.Stop Process Server or the Process Center server.
    3.Install this fix according to its read me instructions.
    4.Enable the configuration property by adding the following
    entry to the 100Custom.xml configuration file:
    <server>
     <instance-migration merge= &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;  &#189;mergeChildren &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;  &#189;>
      <always-save-searchable-variables
    merge= &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;  &#189;replace &#162;&#226;&#130;&#172;  &#189;>true</always-save-searchable-varia
     </instance-migration>
    </server>
    
    By default the value is false.
    5.Start Process Server or the Process Center server.
    6.Check that the enabled property is listed in
    TeamWorksConfiguration.running.xml file.
    7.Migrate the instance.
    8.Repeat this procedure for each Process Center and Process
    Server installation.
