Error description

  • When you define a business process definition (BPD) or process
    with a system task in a lane that is not marked as a system
    lane, you see the following warning in the SystemOut.log of the
    server:
    
    Could not resolve a valid user for system task. Defaulting to
    user '<username>'
    
    This warning appears when none of the defined system lane users
    of your system are members of the default lane team that
    contains the system task.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the system creates a system task in a non-system lane, it
    incorrectly checked the members of the default lane team to look
    for a matching system lane user.
    
    In a non-system lane, system tasks must be owned by the first
    system lane user. The system lane users are defined in the
    Authentication Alias settings for the IBM BPM deployment
    environment in the WebSphere Application Server administrative
    console.
    
    In a system lane, system tasks must be owned by a system lane
    user who is found in the default lane team of the system lane.
    If that team does not contain any of the system lane users, the
    first system lane user owns the task and a warning is logged in
    the SystemOut.log file of the server.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2016.12
    that corrects the logic to check only the default lane team for
    system tasks that are in a system lane.
