APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A task can change its own task subject by using JavaScript.
    However, when autoflow is not enabled for that task or the task
    is the last one before the business process definition (BPD)
    flow completes, the updated subject value is not persisted in
    the database.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When autoflow is not used, the business process definition (BPD)
    engine does not consider changes to its own task context that
    its own services make. The task context is loaded only once, in
    the beginning of the navigation, and is then held until the
    navigation finishes. As a result, stale task information is
    written to the database, which causes numerous other problems.
    This issue is very similar to the issue handled with interim fix
    JR55686, in which autoflow is enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.3 that causes IBM BPM to
    refresh the task context when autoflow is disabled before saving
    the final task state in the database to make sure that the
    latest changes are considered.
