Error description

  • In IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) V8.5, you can concurrently
    update different fields of the same shared business object in a
    heritage human service. However, if you provide your own
    validation code for the heritage human service and enable the
    validation, a field changed by a first user might be reverted to
    its previous value when a second user updates another field.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When you work concurrently on a shared business object, at save
    time IBM BPM determines which changes you made on a by-field
    base to save only those. To determine which changes you made,
    IBM BPM compares your data with the previous version of the
    shared business object.
    
    When your heritage human service uses validation, all variable
    changes that you made in the validation flow are reversed when
    you return to the coach.
    
    The concurrent user edits and the validation processing caused
    the version information about the shared business object to be
    incorrect. As a result IBM BPM considered some changes to be
    made to the wrong version.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that ensures updates are
    not lost during the validation of shared business objects.
