APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you try to update tracking definitions in the Performance
    Data Warehouse with tracked field names that contain more than
    30 bytes, the view for the corresponding tracked field columns
    cannot be created, which causes the update-tracking definitions
    process to fail.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Some databases, such as Oracle, do not allow column names to be
    greater than 30 bytes. Performance Data Warehouse did not
    restrict the tracked field column name to the 30-byte limit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.2 that ensures that the
    tracked field column name is unique and also restricted to 30
    bytes long.
