Error description

  • When you run a business process definition (BPD) that has a
    tracked field of the decimal type, the value of the tracked
    field included in event content is represented in scientific
    notation. Event users, such as IBM Business Monitor, cannot use
    a decimal in scientific notation form because this form is not
    in the lexical space for an xs:decimal.
    
    The event content displays a large decimal tracked field value
    in the following manner:
    
    <wle:tracked-field wle:name="DecimalTrackedField"
    wle:id="bpdid:e7b7e515c0684bbe:5e740ba6:14ac123bj4b:-7fe4"
    wle:type="xs:integer">1.0E7</wle:tracked-field>
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The logic to create events does not prevent decimal tracked
    field values from being converted to scientific notation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be incorporated into a later release that creates
    events based on decimal tracked fields without using scientific
    notation.
    

Temporary fix

  • Not applicable
