Error description

  • When you run one of the administrative scripts for synchronizing
    group memberships, a ClassCastException might occur and the
    script stops if a group is involved that has exactly one member.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • IBM BPM uses federated repositories, which are associated with
    the Virtual Member Manager (VMM), to access user and group
    information in a user registry. VMM properties can be typed as
    single-valued or multi-valued. The ClassCastException occurs
    when the synchronization scripts access the IBM BPM code that
    incorrectly treats a multi-valued property that has only one
    value as a single-valued property.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that improves how
    multi-valued VMM properties are handled in all cases so that the
    group synchronization scripts can run successfully.
