APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Only members of the tw_admin group can access the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/epv/{epv_id}[?snapshotid={snapshotId}][&branchi
    d={branchId}] REST API.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Ensure that the user invoking the REST API is a member of the
    tw_admin group.
    

Problem summary

  • In an IBM Process Center environment, the process application's
    access control list (ACL) authorization is in place for the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/epv REST API. In a runtime IBM Process Server
    environment, only members of the tw_admin group can access the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/epv REST API.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available that introduces a configurable property,
    <enforce-authorization-check-for-ps-model-data>. When you use
    this configurable property, you can allow non tw_admin users to
    access the REST API.
