    Subsequently this authentication or authorization issue is
    reported in the trace:
    
    [7/20/15 16:32:39:505] 00000052 RoleBasedAuth  X   SECJ0305I:The
    role-based authorization check failed for admin-authz operation
    Discovery:getParent.  The user UNAUTHENTICATED (unique ID:
    unauthenticated) was not granted any of the following required
    roles: deployer, operator, configurator, monitor, administrator,
    adminsecuritymanager, auditor.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Failed Event Manager uses a Deployment Manager Admin Client
    facility to look up the target an application is deployed on. If
    the call to this facility is not run with adequate
    authorization, it fails.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is planned to be made available for IBM BPM V7.5.1.1 that
    corrects the Failed Event Manager code to ensure it runs with
    sufficient privileges.
