JR51776: NEXTTASKID IS NOT A USER TASK ID

Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The finishTask REST API responds with an optional field:
    nextTaskId. This field is sometimes filled with the task ID of a
    service call, which should not happen. The task ID in this field
    should always be the task ID of a user task.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Because of a finishTask call the business process definition
    (BPD) instance is navigated to the next user task and the REST
    API call returns the task ID of this user task. When a service
    call task is found and processed before the next user task, a
    transaction boundary is reached. Currently, the REST API call
    returns the task ID of this service call, without checking
    whether this task is a user task.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that checks the
    type of the task ID before returning it. With the fix applied,
    only task IDs of user tasks, or an empty array, are returned.
