Local fix

  • internal defect
    

Problem summary

  • This problem occurs when the admin console DE wizard tries to
    access the databaseName property for all data sources in the
    environment. However, this property is not required for Oracle
    and, therefore, might be missing on custom data sources.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.2 so that the admin
    console DE wizard no longer accesses the properties of custom
    data sources.
