Error description

  • When you use the REST API /exposed to retrieve exposed services,
    or if you use IBM Process Portal (which invokes the API to
    populate the Launch tab in the right pane of the My Work page,
    in addition to the Dashboards menu), the API retrieves each
    service in each toolkit that each process application snapshot
    refers to. With a large number of snapshots that refer to
    toolkits, the set of services that the API returns can grow
    large, with some services being duplicated when multiple
    snapshots of the same application are deployed.  As a result,
    the API might perform slowly.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The /exposed REST API does not provide an option for filtering
    the services that are exposed in toolkits that snapshots refer
    to. As a result, each exposed service in a toolkit is included
    in the API's result set, once for the toolkit itself plus once
    for each time a process application snapshot refers to the
    toolkit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.0 and V8.5.0.1 that adds a
    new parameter, excludeReferencedFromToolkit, to the exposed
    services REST API, and adds a corresponding configuration
    property, com.ibm.bpm.portal.excludeReferencedFromToolkit, to
    the Mashups_ConfigService provider that Process Portal uses. The
    new parameter and new property allow you to specify the
    following multiple subtypes (comma-separated):
    
    administration_service
    dashboard
    startable_service
    url
    
    When you specify a service subtype, exposed services of that
    subtype within toolkits are not included in any application
    context that refers to them and, therefore, is included only
    once in the API result set (for the toolkit itself).
