Error description

  • WebSphere Process Server (WPS) is installed on z/OS, and is
    running in the WebSphere Application Server.  The Business
    Process defined in WPS, includes multi-step processes.  In the
    flow of the Business Process, there is a main process, which
    calls a sub-process.  This sub-process  shows up as a 'task' on
    the Business Process Choreographer (BPC)  Explorer panel
    under the "My To-do's" view.  Under certain circumstances, the
    'Originator' field of this task should reflect the user identity
    of the 'Main Task' which created this 'sub-task'.
    In this error scenario the 'Originator' field of the sub-task is
    displaying 'UNAUTHENTICATED'.

    A process in the Business Process Choreographer Explorer has
    the originator erroneously marked as unauthenticated.
    WebSphere Application Server was incorrectly placing the
    wrong security context on the thread at the time of login.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To make sure the correct context is on the thread, WebSphere
    Application Server will correctly push the context on the
    receive of the request, and then correctly pop the context on
    the send of the request.
    
    APAR PM24368 is currently targeted for inclusion in Service
