APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A General System service accesses exposed process values (EPVs)
    that are defined for the tip. If the General System service is
    replayed from the process designer, the EPVs are retrieved
    correctly. If the General System service is invoked by the REST
    API, it retrieves null values when it tries to access the EPVs,
    even if the invocation specifies the branchID to start the tip.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This problem occurs only if the tip snapshot is a named
    snapshot. That is, immediately after a snapshot has been defined
    or immediately after a new snapshot has been imported. In this
    case, the IBM BPM REST API does not recognize that the General
    System service should be run in the context of the tip but runs
    it in the context of the named snapshot. Because the EPVs are
    defined for the tip, the General System service cannot retrieve
    them.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in an IBM BPM V8.5.6.0 cumulative fix
    that modifies the REST API so it can determine whether the
    service should be run in the context of the tip or in the
    context of the named snapshot.
    

Temporary fix

  • Not applicable
