APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When you migrating inflight instances from one snapshot to
    another, the tasks that have dynamic group references are not
    updated accordingly. As a result, references linger when all
    instances or tasks have been migrated to a new snapshot.
    
    This issue might lead to other issues, such as errors when you
    delete snapshots, because these group references are not
    updated.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Process applications that have dynamic groups defined might
    cause dependency issues when you try to use the
    BPMDeleteSnapshot command.
    
    The task group IDs are not updated as part of the migration,
    leaving behind references to the old snapshot.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix that ensures instance migration updates the group IDs for
    tasks that have dynamic groups assigned to them is planned for
    inclusion in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.03.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
