APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you specify in the assignments page of
    an activity Assign To = Lane and User Distribution = Last
    User, the activity might be assigned to a user who is not
    member of the team associated to the lane.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When you specify Assign To = Lane and User Distribution = Last
    User, IBM BPM searches for the last activity in the lane that
    was completed and assigns the current activity to the user who
    completed the task for that activity.
    However, this user might not belong to the team associated to
    the Lane, such as when the last activity was reassigned to a
    different user or when the last activity was interrupted by an
    attached event.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that checks
    whether the user who closed the last task in the lane belongs
    to the team assigned to the lane. If this is not the case, IBM
    BPM assigns the current task to the team associated to the lane.
    For backwards compatibility, a new configuration flag is
    introduced. By setting the following compatibility flag to false
    in the 100Custom.xml file, you can re-enable the previous
    behavior:
    <server>
     <bpd-engine merge="mergeChildren">
      <user-distribution-last-user-enforce-team-membership
    merge="replace>
       false
      </user-distribution-last-user-enforce-team-membership>
     </bpd-engine>
    </server>
    For BPM 8.5.5.0 this fix is rolled into JR52861
