APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you use the IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) REST Tester
    application, the cookie history grows as REST HTTP requests are
    made. Because the cookie history is sent in the header, IBM BPM
    environments with front-end proxy servers might fail the request
     because the header size exceeds the configured limit. You might
     see the following error message:
    "Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that stores the REST
    Tester history of calls in HTML5 local storage and no longer
    sends them through the request header.
