Error description

  • When you integrate with an Enterprise Content Management (ECM)
    system that supports the Content Management Interoperability
    Services (CMIS), you can use the Content Integration tool and,
    specifically, the "Get children" operation to retrieve
    information about documents and folders that are in a folder.
    
    The Document Explorer coach view also uses this operation to
    show the content of a folder. For some ECM systems, you always
    get an empty result after using this operation even though the
    specified folder contains documents or folders.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the "Get children" operation is invoked, IBM Business
    Process Manager (BPM) invokes the corresponding CMIS operation
    and translate the response into an object of type
    ECMSearchResult. During this conversion it relied on the
    queryName attribute for properties to identify them.
    
    This attribute is only mandatory for Query responses according
    to the CMIS standard, for Get children it is only optional. If
    an ECM system does not set it, the response cannot be correctly
    parsed and is empty.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.09 that
    uses the property definition identifier if no query name is set
    to identify the properties.

    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central:
