Error description

  • While you migrate from IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)
    V7.5.1.2 to IBM BPM V8.5.7, you might use a feature in the
    V7.5.1.2 saved search definition to change the column name
    for business data (which is exposed for the search). This
    feature was available only in V7.5.1.2. Since IBM BPM
    V8.x, the column name has based on the alias definition
    for the business variable. Nevertheless, the customized
    column name (as it is saved within a product XML file)
    works in the runtime environment of IBM Process Portal and
    it is shown on the Heritage Process Portal. However, the
    customized column name is not displayed on the Process
    Portal in IBM BPM V8.5.7.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7.0 cumulative fix
    2016.09 that uses the REST API that Heritage Process Portal used
    to get the missing data for Process Portal, shows the aliases
    defined in V7.5.1.2, and keeps the current behavior for saved
    search created on recent IBM BPM versions.
    
    With this fix applied, the aliases that you created for business
    data column on saved searches are displayed; however, you cannot
    create new saved searches with aliases for business data
    columns. Plus, if you modify a saved search with aliases for
    business data columns, those aliases are overwritten with the
    name of the column.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central:
    
    1. On the Select product tab, select WebSphere as the product
    group, IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from the

    2. In the Text field, enter "cumulative fix?, and click
    Continue.
    
    When you download fix packages, ensure that you also download
    the readme file for each fix. Review each readme file for
    additional installation instructions and information about the
    fix.
