APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Generate reports throws an exception if the snapshot contains an
    external activity used as the implementation for a user task.
    The external activity has a different implementation from the
    other allowed internal implementations, for example, human
    service, integration service, etc. The method to generate the
    report tries to get the subject for the activity but does not
    account for the fact that it can be an external activity leading
    to the exception.
