JR53167: COMPLETED BPD INSTANCES HAVE TASKS MARKED RECEIVED

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you are using activities that have interrupting events
    attached, you might occasionally observe completed business
    process definition (BPD) instances that are closed yet contain
    active tasks marked RECEIVED. Even if you have interim fix
    JR52533 installed on your system, you might observe this problem
    occasionally.
    

Local fix

  • In IBM Process Designer, in Process Inspector, use REST or
    JavaScript APIs to manually resume the instance. The open task
    automatically completes.
    

Problem summary

  • This problem occurs, when the following actions occur at the
    same time:
    
    - The implementation of the activity is running
    - The attached interrupting event uses the message
    
    Both actions read, modify, and save the task. In such a
    situation, the outcome depends on the exact timing: sometimes,
    an incorrect RECEIVED status replaces the correct CLOSED status.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is/will be available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.2 that locks the
    task before modifying it. Interim fix JR52533 also locks the
    task before modifying it but only in a specific code path. This
    fix locks the task in all affected code paths.
