Error description

  • When you try to upload images that have a high-aspect ratio to a
    web file on the IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) server by
    using IBM Process Designer, you receive the following
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException:
    
    Argument not valid exception when uploading some images using
    managed file editor.
    
    This exception occurs, for example, when you create a web file
    by using an image and, from the Managed File editor, browse and
    upload a high-aspect ratio file, such as red_1x400.png.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Do not stretch images too much before uploading them as managed
    files.  For example, instead of uploading red_1x400.png upload
    1x150.png or 3x400.png.
    

Problem summary

  • In Process Designer images with very large or very small aspect
    ratios cannot be scaled. Before IBM BPM V8.0.1, you see this
    exception when the width/height ratio or height/width ratio of
    the image is greater than 200.  In IBM BPM V8.0.1 and later
    versions, you see this exception if the width/height ratio is
    greater than 200 or the height/width ratio is greater than 150.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.09
    (http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24042580) that
    corrects the scaling issue and allows you to use Process
    Designer to upload images that have high-aspect ratios.
    
    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
    WebSphere options, All as the installed version, and All as the
    platform, and then click Continue.
    2. In the Text field, enter "cumulative fix", and click
    Continue.
