APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Only members of the tw_admin group may access the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/processAppSettings?snapshotId={snapshotId}&bran
    chId={branchId}&processAppId={processAppId}&recurse=false REST
    API.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Invoke the REST API as a user who is a member of the tw_admin
    group.
    

Problem summary

  • On an IBM Process Center environment, the process application's
    access control list (ACL) authorization applies to the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/processAppSettings REST API. By default, only
    members of the tw_admin group may access this REST API on a
    runtime IBM Process Server environment.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.6 that introduces a
    configurable property
    (<enforce-authorization-check-for-ps-model-data>) that allows
    non tw_admin users to access the
    /rest/bpm/wle/v1/processAppSettings?snapshotId={snapshotId}&bran
    chId={branchId}&processAppId={processAppId}&recurse=false&#160;REST
    API.
