APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If an undercover agent (UCA) has Variable as its implementation
    and the variable is a complex business object, clicking the Run
    Now button does not work as expected and causes an exception in
    the SystemOut.log file.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Use UCA with implementation as service.
    

Problem summary

  • The complex variable is included as part of a hidden service
    with a script that assigns each of the inner parameters of the
    variable to their respective output variables in this service.
    When the Run Now button is clicked, the script runs and tries to
    get the value for the inner parameters, but you see the
    following error because the variable isn't initialized:
    
    Cannot read property from undefined.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.6.0 that updates the script
    in the hidden service for a UCA with implementation as variable.
    The script checks if the complex variable is defined before
    assigning values for the inner parameters.
