Version 8.5 Refresh Pack 6 for the IBM Business Process Manager products
Version 8.5.0 Fix Pack 2 for the IBM Business Process Manager products
Closed as program error.
When you run the BPMSnapshotCleanup command with -ignoreDependency = true, toolkits that have other toolkits and process apps depending on them can be deleted without warning. As a result,toolkit dependencies become broken, snapshot menu items in IBM Process Center are missing, and process applications cannot be archived and deleted, among other issues. Essentially, IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) becomes unusable. PRODUCTS AFFECTED IBM BPM Advanced IBM BPM Standard IBM BPM Express
Using the BPMSnapshotCleanup command to remove un-named and archived snapshots from Process Center might corrupt the database when the ignoreDependencies parameter is set to true. This optional parameter specifies whether to delete the snapshot even if other process applications or toolkits depend on it. By default the ignoreDependencies parameter is set to false.
A fix is available that enforces dependency checking when removing snapshots, even if the ignoredependency parameter is specified. As a result, snapshots are not deleted if there are dependencies on the snapshot. On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search for JR52327: 1.
