Local fix

  • In IBM Process Designer, rename the BPD by removing ampersand
    (&) from the name before removing the advanced content.
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.12
    that does not result in errors, for example when removing
    advanced content, when a BPD with advanced content has an
    ampersand (&) character in its name.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central:

    group, IBM Business Process Manager with your edition from the
    WebSphere options, All as the installed version, and All as the

    Continue.
