  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • tw.system.model.findProcess incorrectly uses the TIP snapshot
    context on Process Server. This would be the expected behavior
    on Process Center but for process server it should use the
    default snapshot's context.
    
    If you then use methods like startNew it can create an instance
    in the wrong snapshot context. The instances will show up as the
    TIP snapshot in the Process Inspector.
    

Local fix

  • Use the findProcessByName method of a TWProcessAppSnapshot
    object to lookup the BPD.
    

Problem summary

  • ERROR DESCRIPTION -
    Using the Javascript API TWProcess.startNew() will create a
    process instance with the flag TIP set to ?T? in the database.

    PROBLEM SUMMARY
    The following is an example of the effected Javascript API:
    tw.system.model.findProcess("25.31bde955-a01a-41e7-9f44-f4ce9e99
    0426","2066.be55f902-d944-40b0-a264-94fb6b15cade").startNew(null
    );
    
    The instances created will have the TIP flag set to ?T?(true)
    even when the BPD context used to start the instance is from a
    named snapshot.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
