Error description

  • When you update the context root prefix of a deployment
    environment by using the "BPMConfig -update -contextroot
    <prefix>" command, the Business Process Choreographer Ex
    URL prefixes that are in the Human Task Manager configuration
    are not updated. Therefore, the Failed Event Manager, which is
    one of the components that use these URL prefixes, creates
    incorrect links to show process instances.
    

Local fix

  • administrative console, click either
     Servers > Clusters > WebSphere application server clusters >
     cluster name
    or
     Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server
     name.
    Then on the Configuration tab, in the Business Integration
    section, expand Business Process Choreographer, and click Human
    Task Manager.
    Then on the Runtime tab, enter a value for Process Explorer URL
    prefix,
    for example, http://myServer/bpm/bpc,

    The BPMConfig command does not pass the -contextRootPrefix
    setting when it updates the Business Process Choreographer
    context root configuration. As a result, the Business Process
    Choreographer  Explorer URL prefixes are not updated in the
    configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

  • IS A WORKAROUND AVAILABLE? (Y/N)
    Yes. Complete the following steps:
     1.Start the deployment manager.
     2.In the administrative console, go to Servers > Clusters >
    WebSphere application server clusters and click the link to
    the application cluster of your deployment environment.
     3.On the Configuration tab, click the Business Process
    Choreographer > Human Task Manager link in the Business
    Process Manager section.
     4.On the Configuration tab of the Human Task Manager settings
    page, update the Administrator URL prefix and Process Explorer
    URL prefix settings. If one or both of the Escalation URL
    prefix or Task URL prefix settings are not empty, update those
    values, too.
     5.Save your configuration changes and run node synchronization.
     6.Restart the cluster members.
