Error description

  • If a process app or a toolkit depends on a toolkit snapshot and
    the toolkit contains a team, that team is returned by the
    process app or toolkit call to the tw.system.org.getAllTeams()
    JS API. If there is a new toolkit snapshot that does not contain
    the team  and the process app or toolkit dependency is upgraded
    to the new toolkit snapshot, the call to
    tw.system.org.getAllTeams() JS API fails with a
    NullPointerException that is similar to the following
    NullPointerException:
    
    Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
     at com.lombardisoftware.client.persistence.common.
      factorydelegate.VersionedFactoryDelegate.findByPrimaryKey

Local fix

  • In the toolkit, locate the deleted team in a previous snapshot
    and right-click Revert. The library item is restored to the
    current version.
    

Problem summary

  • A tw.system.orrg.getAllTeams() call tries to access the already
    deleted team, which results in a java.lang.NullPointerException
    because the team was not deleted properly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM 8.5.0.1 that deletes the team
    properly.
