Local fix

Problem summary

  • The REST API to get user information that is used on the Process
    Instance Stream calls the userNameOrUserId as the parameter by
    using userName. As a result, the search looks for userId first
    and return the user who has as the userId that the userName
    passed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in IBM BPM V8.5.7.0 cumulative fix CF2017.03
    that modifies the Process Instance Stream to get the user
    information by using a REST API that distinguishes between
    user_name and user_id. With the fix applies, you always see the
    correct user when searching by user_name.
