Error description

  • The IBM Process Center and IBM Process Server databases
    sometimes contain orphaned group information, which could lead
    to several problems. If you query all groups of a user, old,
    already-deleted groups might be returned. In the Process Admin
    Console, participant groups might not be displayed. Furthermore,
    you might get the following error when you use the
    getAllTeams()/getAllParticipantGroups() JavaScript API:

    The following group types might cause this issue:
    - Dynamic groups
    - Participant groups
    - User groups
    This error occurs if the BPMSnapshotCleanup or the
    BPMDeleteSnapshot commands were used without interim fixes
    JR49606 and JR48877 installed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Before JR49606 and JR48877, the BPMCleanupSnapshot and the
    BPMDeleteSnapshot commands did not delete all the group-related
    information from the IBM BPM database.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM 7.5.1.2, IBM BPM 8.0.1.0, IBM BPM
    8.0.1.1, IBM BPM 8.0.1.2, IBM BPM 8.5.0.0, and IBM BPM 8.5.0.1
    that deletes the information that pertains to orphaned groups
    when the server starts.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR49928:
    
    1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from
    the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
    level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
    
    2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR49928, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
    
    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)"
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21669992).
