Error description

  • When the flow of a running business process definition (BPD)
    instance exits a linked process and the linked process activity
    is located in a subprocess, the process instance name and the
    process due date from the linked process remain unchanged; both
    the instance name and due date are not set back to the instance
    name and due date defined in the nearest enclosing top-level
    process.

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Whenever an activity of a BPD runs, the name and the due date of
     the BPD instance is recalculated according to the name and due
    date definition specified in the top-level process. When a
    linked process runs as part of the BPD, the instance name and
    due date are recalculated according to the definition as
    specified in the linked process. However, when the linked
    process activity is located in a subprocess, the execution of
    the linked process completes and the running flow returns into
    the embedded process context, the instance name and the due date
     are not recalculated according to the top-level process but
    remain as calculated in the linked process.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be available in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.06
     that updates the process instance name and the process due date
     when the execution flow exits a linked process that is located
    in a subprocess.
