Error description

  • There is no API for creating IBM Business Process Manager (BPM)
    internal groups programmatically.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • You can create IBM BPM internal groups only by using the Process
    Admin Console. You cannot create IBM BPM internal groups
    programmatically by using existing APIs. A corresponding method
    is needed at the JavaScript API to enable programmatic access.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.5.0.1 that provides a new
    JavaScript API method that you can use to create an internal
    group in IBM BPM.
    
    Using the method follows this syntax:
    
    TWRole createRole(String roleName, String roleDisplayName,
    String roleDescription, boolean checkAuthorization), where
    
    - roleName: name of the role to create, cannot be null
    - roleDisplayName: display name to be used for the role, if null
     roleName is added as display name
    - roleDescription: description to be used for the role, can be
     null
    - checkAuthorization:
     -- if true, authorization is enforced: only administrative
       users (members of the BpmAdminsSecurityGroup) are allowed to
       create the role
     -- if false, no authorization check is performed
    
    If role creation is successful, a scriptable object of type
    TWRole is returned.
    
    If role creation is not successful, for example, because a role
    with the same name already exists, null is returned.
    If a required authorization fails, an exception is thrown.
