JR56253: BPMTASKCLEANUP DOES NOT DELETE SEND ALERT TASKS

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you use the Send Alert feature, an email is sent and a task
    is created in the LSW_TASK table. These tasks are in the Alert
    state.
    When the BPMTaskCleanup command runs, these tasks are not
    deleted. As a result,  leftover task instances might prevent
    process application snapshot from being deleted.
    

Local fix

  • Manually call the stored LSW_ERASE_TASK procedure to delete the
    tasks.
    

Problem summary

  • The Alert state cannot be identified as an end state of a task;
    therefore, you cannot delete tasks in the Alert state when you
    run the BPMTaskCleanup command.
    If alerts are sent from a service implementation outside the
    scope of a business process definition (BPD) or process, the
    Alert tasks remain in the system, potentially preventing the
    removal of process application snapshots.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.09
    that allows you to run the BPMTaskCleanup command with the
    "-taskStatus ALERT" parameter.
