Error description

  • In the desktop IBM Process Designer, dropping an external
    implementation into a business process definition (BPD) diagram
    generates an activity of Implementation = System Task when
    dropped into the System lane or = User Task when dropped into
    another lane. The implementation remains the same after you move
    it around to a different lane.
    
    In the web Process Designer, dropping an external service that
    has an external implementation into a process diagram always
    generates an activity of Implementation = System Task. It should
    behave like the desktop Process Designer by generating an
    activity of Implementation = User Task when the target lane is
    not the System lane.

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 aligns the result of dropping an external service that has
    an external implementation into a process in the web Process
    Designer with the equivalent function in the desktop Process
    Designer.
