Error description

  • When you use the REST API /exposed to retrieve exposed items
    other than 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 exposed item (other than services) in each
    toolkit that each process application snapshot refers to.
    With a large number of snapshots that refer to toolkits, the
    set of items that the API returns can grow large, with some
    items being duplicated when multiple snapshots of the same
    application are deployed.
    
    A fix that extends the fix for APAR JR51596
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1JR51596),
    which addresses this issue for exposed services retrieved by
    the API, is needed to address the other types of exposed items
    (processes, reports, and scoreboards).

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The /exposed REST API, with the fix for APAR JR51596 applied,
    provides an option for filtering the services that are exposed
    in toolkits that snapshots refer to but does not provide options
    for the other types of exposed services: processes, reports,
    and scoreboards. As a result, each exposed process, report, or
    scoreboard 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
    new values to the excludeReferencedFromToolkit parameter for the
    exposed services REST API and to the
    com.ibm.bpm.portal.excludeReferencedFromToolkit configuration
    property for Process Portal (both were introduced in the fix for
    APAR JR51596).  The resulting set of values is now
    
    process - for all processes
    report - for all reports
    scoreboard - for all scoreboards
    dashboard - for dashboard services
    startable_service - for startable services
    url - for URL services
    administration_service - for administration services
    service - for all services (overrides dashboard,
    startable_service, url, and administration_service subtypes)
    all - all items including all services (subtypes)
    
    When you specify a type or service subtype, exposed services of
    that type or 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).
