Local fix

  • Remove leading underscores from the alias of every searchable
    variable in all of your business process definitions (BPDs) and
    delete every process instance that was created using these BPDs
    regardless of its state.
    

Problem summary

  • When you apply the search optimization, a table is generated
    based on the data in the LSW_BPD and LSW_BPD_INSTANCE_VARIABLES
    tables that holds a column for each variable that is marked
    'Visible in Process Portal' in IBM Process Designer. If the
    alias of one of these variables starts with an underscore, the
    table creation SQL statement fails.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be available in IBM BPM V8.5.7 cumulative fix 2017.06
     that removes leading underscores from variable aliases before
    creating the SQL statement.
    

Temporary fix
