APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You can manage the values of exposed process variables (EPVs) in
    the Process Admin Console. When you use special characters in
    the new value, the special characters are stored in the database
    UI encoded as an entity. For example Max&Moritz becomes
    Max&Moritz. Therefore, the EPV value still includes UI
    encoded entities when the EPV value is used in an application.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM 8.5.5.0 and is targetted for
    inclusion in BPM 8570 CF 2017.03, that stores the EPV values
    correctly.
    
    When you download a fix, ensure that you also download the
    readme file. Review the readme file for additional installation
    instructions and information about the fix.
    
    After you install the fix, open the Process Admin Console and
    change the EPV values in question to the expected input. After
    the modified EPV values are applied, they should no longer
    include UI encoding information.
