Error description

  • The client-side human service doesn't handle the variable type
    properly when a variable with the same name but a different
    business object type is defined within the nested client-side
    human services. When one of the variables is a List variable and
    the variable is used within a coach, an error referring to a
    JavaScript array function can occur. As a result of the error,
    the coach might be blank.
    
    You can see an error like
    
    Uncaught TypeError: this.listAllSelectedIndices.join is not a
    function
    
    in the browser's developer tools or web console, depending on
    your browser.
    
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Rename one of the variables to make it unique within the set of
    client-side human services used by the root client-side human
    service.
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.06
    that corrects how variable types are handled and, therefore,
    prevents the error from occurring.
    

Temporary fix
