Error description

    NullPointerException:
    
    Stack trace:
    BPMGetSnapsho I   BPMGetSnapshotAcronym failed due to: null

Local fix

  • Verify the snapshot name in Process Center or Process Admin
    Console.
    

Problem summary

  • When you enter an incorrect snapshot name as a parameter of the
    BPMGetSnapshotAcronym command, you receive a
    NullPointerException because the snapshot cannot be found.
    However, the message you receive doesn't indicate what the
    problem is and what causes it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix that shows you a message indicating that you must use the
    correct snapshot name is planned for inclusion in IBM BPM V8.5.7
     cumulative fix 2017.03.
    
    To determine whether the cumulative fix is available and
    download it if it is, complete the following steps on Fix
    Central (http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral):
    
    1. On the Select product tab, select WebSphere as the product
