APAR status

  • Closed as new function.

Error description

  • Currently you can delete IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)
    security groups only manually by using the Process Admin
    Console.
    IBM BPM provides an API to create IBM BPM security groups
    programmatically, but there is no way to delete these groups
    from processes or services.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM BPM Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Delete internal groups by using the Process Admin Console. For
    more information, see "Creating and managing groups"
    (https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFPJS_8.5.7/com.ib
    m.wbpm.admin.doc/topics/managing_users_D.html).
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An enhancement will be incorporated into IBM BPM V8.5.7
    cumulative fix 2017.03 that provides two new JavaScript API
    functions:
    tw.system.org.removeRole(String roleName, Boolean
    checkAuthorization)
    
    and
    
    TWRole.remove(Boolean checkAuthorization)
    
    which you can use to delete IBM BPM security group definitions.
    By using the checkAuthorization parameter, you can ensure that
    only members of the IBM BPM administrative group can delete IBM
    BPM security groups successfully. If this parameter is not set,
    no dedicated authorization check is performed and the process
    or service logic must ensure that only authorized callers
    trigger the deletion.
    
    Note: You can't delete a group that has tasks assigned or is
    configured as bpmAdminGroup in the BPMServerSecurityGroups
    configuration.
