APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You cannot refresh user fullname changes from the IBM WebSphere
    Application Server user repository when you use REST API.
    

Local fix

  • n/a
    

Problem summary

  • Although the user fullname is initially loaded from the IBM
    WebSphere Application Server user repository, changes to the
    user fullname in the WebSphere Application Server user
    repository that occur after the initial loading are not
    updated in the IBM BPM database. As a result, all users
    retrieve obsolete fullname when they use REST API for this user.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that adds a new action policy,
    ACTION_REFRESH_USER, that gives administrators the ability to
    refresh user data. The default administration group for
    ACTION_REFRESH_USER is tw_admins.
    
    This administration group allows members of the group to refresh
    user fullname and group memberships by using the user or users
    REST API resource.

    iFix for 8.5.0.1 is/will be available on Fix Central; search for
