  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using a generated policy file for instance
    migration, a "BPD id is invalid" error occurs during policy file
    validation and instance migration is not allowed.  The error
    occurs due to a BPD defined in a toolkit and the initial lookup
    when doing the validation does not search the dependent
    toolkits for the specified artifact.  Even though the BPD entry
    can be found in the database and does indeed exist.
    

Local fix

  • Use moveToken REST API and executing it on each instance
    manually.

    LOCAL FIX - n/a
    
    
    PROBLEM SUMMARY-
    When you migrate inflight instances from one snapshot to another
     by using a policy file, you  encounter the following error if a
     BPD is in a reference toolkit:
    
    ?The value <BPD_id> specified for attribute bpdid in XML element
    process is invalid.
    
    The policy file is generated by the BPMCheckOrphanTokens command
    and the BPD ID is automatically populated accordingly.
    Therefore, the error should not apply because the BPD does
    exist.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 to properly locate the
    BPD from a toolkit and resolve the ?BPD ID is invalid? error.
