Subscribe

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) V8.5.7 CF 2016.12 you
    cannot claim a task again if the task is already assigned to the
    same user.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED
    IBM BPM Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Change the case of the user name in LDAP so that it matches the
    case being entered.
    

Problem summary

  • Before assigning the task again, IBM BPM checks for the
    ownership of a task by user name, which involves comparing the
    case style instead of the user ID. As a result, IBM BPM throws
    an error if the user name in the database is saved in a
    different case compared to the user name in the http request or
    LDAP system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.03
    that makes the Assign ToMe REST API case insensitive.
    

Temporary fix
