    The error happens when the Team Performance dashboard
    implementation runs the tw.system.org.findTeam() JavaScript API.
    You might also observe the error when you run the JavaScript API
    in your own code.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The Team Performance dashboard uses the tw.system.org.findTeam()
    JavaScript API to retrieve information about a team. This API
    can find a team in any project. The error occurs on Process
    Server when the system retrieves the details of the Team object
    because it incorrectly entered a code path that is applicable
    only for IBM Process Center environments.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.03
    that corrects the logic of the findTeam() JavaScript API to not
    run the Process Center specific code in a Process Server
    environment.
