APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You can perform administrative tasks for user synchronization
    either by using the administrative scripts that are provided for
    this purpose (usersSync, usersFullSync) or by triggering
    synchronization operations (synchronize, full synchronize) from
    the Process Admin Console by selecting User Management and then
    User Synchronization.
    When the federated repositories are configured as a user
    registry, the administrative user synchronization mechanisms in
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) assume that the default
    loginProperties setting uid is used to identify the available
    users in the federated repositories (including associated LDAP
    directories). When you configure a non-default value or a
    sequence of values for the loginProperties settings, the
    mechanisms might clear the user full names in the IBM BPM
    database and add incorrect user entries.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When you configure a non-default value or a sequence of values
    as the loginProperties in federated repositories, the
    administrative user synchronization mechanisms might clear the
    user full names in the IBM BPM database and add incorrect user
    entries.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available that ensures that administrative
    user synchronization correctly reflects the loginProperties
    settings that were configured for the federated repositories.
    With this fix applied, correct user full name values are used
    to update existing user entries in the IBM BPM database and no
    incorrect user entries are added to the IBM BPM database.
