APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The finishTask REST API call returns some instance data in its
    reply. The nextTaskId field  is null, although it is supposed to
    contain the ID of the next user task if the finished user task
    has 'autoflow' enabled and there is no other activity between
    the finished user task and the next user task.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This REST API call finishes the user task, kicks off a new
    thread to go to the next task, and waits for the end of the
    navigation. Because there are two concurrent database locks, the
    thread never finds the next task, so the API returns with
    nextTaskId as null.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 and V8.5.5.0 that finds
    the next task with only one database lock. The API returns with
    the nextTaskId field completed correctly.
