APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When modifying complex variables in process inspector, if one
    or more values are updated but not all, the unmodified values
    will become null.
    

Local fix

  • The problem in process inspector is we only build the REST API
    query with the field which the user has modified. Hence, the
    specified field is updated but the others are set to null.
    

Problem summary

    When you attempt to modify task data for a specific process
    instance in Process Inspector, if the variable being modified is
