Error description

  • When a PUT forceRetry Business Flow Manager (BFM) call doesn't
    have  an input message, the forceRetry runs with an empty input
    message although it should use the  existing, unchanged input
    message.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The implementation of the PUT forceRetry BFM REST API
    incorrectly converts the missing input data into an empty input
    message. As a result, the process engine uses this empty
    input message to overwrite the existing input message of the
    activity.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.5.0 that ensures the PUT
    forceRetry BFM REST uses the existing input message of the
    activity.
