Error description

  • In IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Standard, when you
    invoke a web service from an integration service and use input
    header mappings for the SOAP header, the mapped SOAP header is
    sometimes included in the generated SOAP request many times.
    Furthermore, in some case the input parameters might be
    missing from the SOAP request.

    ****************************************************************
    The web service invocation code is not threadsafe when it uses
    input header mappings. In a multithreaded situation, adding
    and removing headers is not properly synchronized, which leads
    to the issues noted in the Error Descriptiozn.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 and V8.5.5 that makes
    the SOAP header mapping-related functions threadsafe,
    preventing these issues from occurring.
