Error description

  • After you run the BPMSnapshotCleanup command to remove unnamed
    snapshots, you can no longer save artifacts in IBM Process
    Designer in a process app or toolkit that has advanced content.
    
    After you run the BPMSnapshotCleanup command to remove unnamed
    snapshots, you can no longer receive updates in IBM Integration
    Designer from Process Center when you select "Refresh and
    Publish" for a project.
    

Local fix

  • Edit the LSW_SCA_CONNECTOR table of the BPMDB database and
    put the value outOfSync in the LAST_SYNCHRONIZED column for the
    Advanced Integration service that is affected. The existing
    value is the ID of an unnamed snapshot that has been deleted.
    Then, in IBM Integration Designer, delete the process app or
    toolkit from the workspace and reload it by selecting the "Open
    in workspace" link.
    

Problem summary

  • The BPMSnapshotCleanup command removed unnamed snapshots from
    the database. Advanced Integration services store the ID of an
    unnamed snapshot in the LSW_SCA_CONNECTOR database table to
    indicate when the snapshot was last synchronized with its
    implementation in Integration Designer. Furthermore, this
    unnamed snapshot ID is stored in your preferences in Integration
     Designer to indicate when the project was last synchronized
    with Process Center. Removing the unnamed snapshots from the
    database causes exceptions to be thrown when Process Designer or
     Integration Designer attempts to load the unnamed snapshot.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for Process Designer and Integration Designer
     in IBM BPM V8.0.1.2 and V8.5.0.1. With the interim fix applied,
     the Advanced Integration services of unnamed snapshots that
    have been deleted are marked in Process Designer as being out of
     sync. In addition, a full comparison of the artifacts (from the
     tip) instead of a delta comparison (from the last synchronized
    snapshot) is performed in Integration Designer.

    In addition to this interim fix, install the other interim fixes
    that are required for the BPMDeleteSnapshot and
    BPMSnapshotCleanup commands, which are listed in "Issues with
    BPMDeleteSnapshot and BPMSnapshotCleanup commands in IBM
    Business Process Manager (BPM)"
