Error description

  • When you model a business process (BPD) that tries to access the
    contents of a document of another BPD instance within the IBM
    BPM document store in an automated ECM integration step running
    under the authority of an IBM BPM administrator, you see the
    following message instead of the actual contents of the
    document:
    
    You are not authorized to see the IBM BPM document content.
    
    Users in the bpmAdminGroup group are usually allowed to perform
    any action on a BPD instance, and they should, therefore, be
    allowed to see the contents of documents.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The authorization check in the context of the 'get document
    content' ECM integration, does not regard IBM BPM
    administrators.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that adds an appropriate
    authorization check for IBM BPM administrators when running an
    ECM integration step of type 'get document content'.
