APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On the IBM Process Portal Work page, under the My Tasks section,
    you can select the task name link to work on a task.  If a task
     name contains HTML characters, the name appears correctly on
    the Work page; however, when you select the task name link to
    run that task, the Process Portal Task Completion page opens and
     the task name appears incorrectly on the page heading.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • On a web page, when a display field contains reserved HTML
    characters, they must be converted to HTML entities or the
    browser might confuse the HTML characters with tags. For
    example, > must be converted to &gt. The task name on the task
    completion page did not convert the reserved HTML characters to
    HTML entities.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.2 that uses a formatter to
     properly display the name if it includes HTML entities. The fix
     also uses the task subject (display name) if it exists. If not,
     the task name is used.
