APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Authorization to read or manipulate BPEL process data can be
    granted either by using process instance-based authorization
    roles (such as reader, editor, potential owner, owner,
    administrator) or by assigning users or groups to the
    BPESystemAdministrator or BPESystemMonitor Java EE roles. Users
    or groups in the BPESystemMonitor role are not correctly checked
    to determine if they are authorized to perform actions on
    processes or activity instances.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Because the BPESystemMonitor Java EE role is not being honored,
    users in this role are not granted correct permissions on
    process instances.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that adds the check for
    the BPESystemMonitor role.
