  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using Process Inspector in the Process Admin console to
    terminate/delete instances, if using the "select all" option to
    select the queried results, inspector may incorrectly delete
    extra instances that are NOT select. If querying with a specific
     string filter option, the "select all" feature
    terminates/deletes does not factor in the filter options and may
     remove more instance than selected.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Process inspector by design will show the first 20 process
    instances only if more than 20 is found.  You can select the
    check box at the top of the page to select all 20 instances at
    once. However there is an option to select all instance queried.
      The option following will be shown near the top of the page :
    ?Select all xx rows?.
    The problem can be seen when the confirmation screen is
    displayed, indicating how many instances were terminated or
    deleted.  The number shown will be higher than what you have
    selected.
    For example, the option only shows ?Select all 100 rows?.  These
    100 process instances were the ones retrieved according to the
    filter options.  When terminating or deleting, a confirmation
    message will appear with the following text: ?Terminated 200 of
    200 processes? .
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM v8.0.1.2.  Process inspector will
     now honor the filter options and terminate/delete only the ones
     selected.
