    "During staff refresh, there is a chance that the people

Problem summary

  • Problem Description:
    When executing a staff refresh - manually triggered via
    Administrative Console, wsadmin script or automatically
    triggered
    via Daemon - an assertion violation may occure that stops
    refreshing further staff queries.
    
    Problem Summary:
    If a customer has enabled a post processor plugin, non-shared
    staff query instances are created. These staff query
    instances are later refreshed as all staff query instances.
    Additionally, these staff query instances to be refreshed
    are also sent to the post processor plugin. If the post
    processor plugin is disabled in the meantime, under certain
    circumstances this might run into a precodition violation, e.g.
    
    com.ibm.bpe.util.Assert.precondition(Assert.java:141)
    Precondition violation !(EscalationInstance is null) in method
    >>
    
    com.ibm.task.staff.StaffQueryManager.postProcessStaffResult(Staf
    fQueryManager.java:1829)
      ...
    
    Problem Conclusion:
    The code now does additional checks to detect this special
    situation and does not fail. The staff query instance
    is refreshed, without involving a post processor plugin, as none
    is configured.
