APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the first user logs in after the server restarts, access to
    the Federated Repositories service is initialized. If the user
    does not have admin privileges, an initialization failure occurs
    and the Federated Repositories service is assumed to be
    unavailable. This assumption causes a poorer-performing
    UserRegistry service to be used as a fallback.
    The following exception is logged to the SystemOut.log file:
    
    [9/7/15 14:19:15:872 CST] 00000117 exception     E
    com.ibm.websphere.wim.security.authz.AccessException
    
    com.ibm.websphere.wim.security.authz.AccessException:
    CWWIM2009E  The principal ... does not have the role
    'administrator' required for the operation     'GET
    CONFIGURATION'
     at com.ibm.ws.wim.env.was.JACCAuthorizationService.
      checkPermission_SuperUser(JACCAuthorizationService.java:360)
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is planned to be included in a future IBM BPM V8.5.6.0
    Cumulative Fix that avoids the initialization issue for
    Federated Repositories because the initialization call is
    performed in a privileged security context, which avoids
    requiring special privileges for the calling user.
    

Temporary fix
