APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you invoke the REST API for numerous exposed processes, the
    API might be slow to return a result.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The exposed processes REST API always calculates the startURL
    value for launching the process, which is required by IBM
    Process Portal in IBM BPM. However, the startURL might not be
    required for your usage of the API. This calculation is time
    consuming. Therefore, when there are many exposed processes, the
     calculation can substantially increase the amount of time it
    takes to return the set of exposed processes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.0 that adds a new
    parameter, excludeProcessStartUrl, to the exposed processes REST
     API.  By default, or if the value of the parameter is set to
    false ("excludeProcessStartUrl=false"), the API always
    calculates and returns the startURL value for each exposed
    proces that it returns in the response.  If the value of the
    parameter is set to  true, the startURL values will not be
    calculated or returned in the response.
