  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A return statement that runs in the load, unload, or both types
    of coach view event handlers affects how the parent view object
    is assigned. Because the parent view is not fully initialized,
    the user-defined events don't work properly. IBM Business
    Process Manager (BPM) users are unaware that some IBM BPM code
    will no longer run because the return statement ran. The
    following JavaScript error is recorded in the browser's console
    log file:
    
    "Cannot read property getParrent  of undefined."
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Explicitly add the IBM BPM code (see the lines starting with
    this.bpmEventHelper... below) to the load event handler before
    the custom load code, or wrap the load event handler code in a
    try...finally block.
    

Problem summary

  • For the user-defined event framework, additional code is
    appended to event handlers when coaches are generated. If the
    load, unload, or both types of event handlers do not contain the
    return statement, this code runs and performs some
    initialization that are key to events being handled correctly
    later on.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be included in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.06
    that ensures code injected into the load, unload, or both event
    handlers when coaches are generated at run time.
