Error description

  • In IBM Business Process Manager (BPM), you can  assign a task
    automatically to a particular user and open the user interface
    for that task automatically by using the auto-flow feature.
    However, when you switch the configuration parameter
    "enable-start-bpd-from-uca" to "true", which is set to "false"
    by default in 99Local.xml, the auto-flow feature no longer works
    for the first task in a business process definition (BPD). For
    tasks other than the first one, the auto-flow feature is not
    affected by the "enable-start-bpd-from-uca" parameter.
    You can verify that the malfunction in the auto-flow feature is
    really caused by this error. For this, set the
    "enable-start-bpd-from-uca" parameter temporarily to  false  and
    check whether after server restart the auto-flow feature works
    as expected. If not, you might want to double-check the BPD
    details instead.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This issue occurs because a thread switch inside the workflow
    engine disables the auto-flow feature when the
    "enable-start-bpd-from-uca"parameter is set to ?true?.
    
    A fix that changes the workflow engine to separate the start
    BPD, the UCA functionality, and the auto-flow feature will be
    incorporated into a later release.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
