Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you trigger a saved search  by using a REST API, you might
    receive an empty result set even though you, as the calling
    user, are part of the tw_admins group and are, therefore,
    authorized to see all IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)
    artifacts.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • While creating the SQL statement to retrieve the IBM BPM data,
    the administrative rights of the calling user are checked. This
    check might fail because it is case sensitive.

Problem conclusion
