APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On the Process Admin Console User Management page, you cannot
    delete users that have leading or trailing blanks. You do not
    receive an error message, but the user is not deleted. Even
    after you delete a user that has trailing blanks in the user
    name, you cannot recreate a user with the same name without
    blanks in the Process Admin Console. You can do this only in the
    administrative console.
    

Local fix

  • You can remove the blanks from the user name in the
    administrative console > Users and Groups > Manage Users > User
    Properties. Doing this will also fix the entry in the IBM
    Business Process Manager (BPM) database.
    
    A user name with and without trailing blanks is treated as the
    same user. Therefore when you delete a user that has trailing
    blanks, the user cannot be created again in the Process Admin
    Console with or without trailing blanks. For more information,
    see "Creating and maintaining users for an IBM BPM deployment
    environment"
    (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFTBX_8.5.7/com.ib
    m.wbpm.admin.doc/topics/managing_users_nd.html?cp=SSFTBX_8.5.7).
