Error description

  • When an undercover agent (UCA) fails, a RetryOnHold task is
    created even if an automatic retry might succeed and no
    automatic retries occur. In versions of IBM Business Process
    Manager (BPM) earlier than V8.5.6, failed UCAs were retried
    automatically up to five times. Only when all retrials fail, the
    UCA's event manager task should be converted into a
    ReplayOnHold task so that the UCA can be tried again later.
