JR50719: CUSTOM ASSIGNMENTS WITH MULTIPLE ROLES OR USERS CREATE MULTIPLE TASKS

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you define a custom assignment on a user task that has
    multiple roles or users separated by semicolons, a task is
    created for each defined role or user.
    
    If these tasks are not processed, they remain in the Received
    status and can be claimed even if the process instance has
    already been completed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This issue occurs as a result of the parallel task function: if
    the user task is assigned to N users, N tasks are created: one
    for each user. The first user who completes this task causes the
    BPD to continue navigation. The other tasks remain visible to
    assigned users or roles and can be worked on, even when the
    instance is completed. As a result, users can change process
    variables, which might affect navigation in the instance or the
    state (history) of an already completed instance.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.1 so that separating roles
    or users by semicolons is no longer enforced or encouraged.
