APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The compatibilityIgnoreExposedToForHumanService flag for
    disabling the authorization check for human services by using
    the service REST API is incorrect in the 99Local.xml file.
    

Local fix

  • In the 100Custom.xml file for IBM Process Center or IBM Process
    Server, use
    
    <properties>
      <server>
        <rest>
          <compatibility-ignore-exposed-to-for-human-service>
          true
          </compatibility-ignore-exposed-to-for-human-service>
        </rest>
      </server>
    </properties>
    
    to activate the configuration parameter if needed.
    

Problem summary

  • The configuration flag in 99Local.xml is written in camel case
    as compatibilityIgnoreExposedToForHumanService instead of with
    hyphens as compatibility-ignore-exposed-to-for-human-service.
    As a result, setting the flag to true has no effect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in  IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.12
     that fixes the misrepresentation of the configuration flag in
    the 99Local.xml.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral):
