APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Error messages in heritage coaches default to English if no
    locale is set for the user preference. IBM Process Portal and
    other parts of coaches display the proper languages, according
    to the browser locale settings. However, validation for business
     object types does not use the same logic as Process Portal or
    other parts of coaches and, so, defaults to English.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround: Set your locale attribute under Bulk attribute
    assignment in the Process Admin Console. Alternatively, set the
    language setting in the Process Portal preference page.
    

Problem summary

  • User input fields in a heritage coach that are bound to a
    specific system type return error messages in English if the
    locale is not set in your preference settings. The system error
    messages default to English if no user locale is set.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM v8.0.1.1 that
    checks for a proper locale before defaulting to English. If the
    locale attribute is not set in the
    preferences, the code looks up the JVM locale and use that
    locale. If the JVM does not have a proper
    locale setting, English will be used.
