APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In the IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) XML configuration, you
    can specify that null mime types are not allowed during an
    upload:
    
      <document-attachment-accepted-mime-types>
       <allow-null-mime-type>false</allow-null-mime-type>
      </document-attachment-accepted-mime-types>
    
    The purpose of this setting is to prevent the upload of
    documents without content. As a side effect, this setting also
    prevents documents of type URL from being uploaded, although
    those document type might be allowed.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
