Error description

  • If an IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) user is a member of a
    group that has double slashes in the group name, an exception is
     logged by the server. No function is lost and the user does not
     see an error in IBM Process Portal.
    
    The Invalid Channel exception is logged in the server log files:
    
    E com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.webapp.WebApp logServletError
    SRVE0293E: [Servlet Error]-[SocialBusServiceServlet]:
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid channel

Local fix

  • n/a
    

Problem summary

  • Process Portal does not parse group names correctly when the
    group names contain double slashes. As a result, these group
    names aren't passed to the collaboration processing code on the
    server and the exception appears in the server log files.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that can process group
    names containing double slashes.
    
    On Fix Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral), search
    for JR54590.
    
    1. Select IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from
    the product selector, the installed version to the fix pack
    level, and your platform, and then click Continue.
    2. Select APAR or SPR, enter JR54590, and click Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
