APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the Process Center Console, it takes a long time to filter
    process applications that contain long rich-text descriptions.
    The longer the rich-text description, the more time required to
    filter the list.
    
    This issue affects IBM Process Center in Internet Explorer and
    Process Center in IBM Process Designer more than Process Center
    in other web browsers.
    
    This issue is specific to the filter bar in the Snapshot page
    for the Process Center Console, which shows all the business
    process definitions (BPDs) and other items in the snapshot.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Don't copy large Microsoft Word or Excel documents or images
    into the description field of elements.
    

Problem summary

  • Projects containing elements that have long rich-text
    descriptions  slow dthe filtering process.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that limits the description size to 200,000
    characters. You are prevented from saving descriptionjs that
    exceed this size. In addition, with the fix applied, IBM BPM
    detects and optimizes for more description patterns.
