IT19265: DATAPOWER MIGHT RESTART UNEXPECTEDLY IN RARE CONDITIONS OF USING CALLED RULES IN ASYNCHRONOUS CONDITIONAL ACTIONS

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The user observed DataPower might restart unexpectedly in rare
    conditions of using Called Rules in asynchronous Conditional
    Actions.
    

Local fix

  • Change Conditional Action to be synchronous or make sure the
    rule doesn't have a Results Action.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected are certain invalid DataPower configurations, with
    Processing Policies containing processing rules that use
    asynchronous conditional or call actions to ultimately execute a
    rule that generates an output, e.g. with a Results action.
    
    Such invalid configurations are not detected by DataPower
    and might result in a restart, generating a
    backtrace. The fixed firmware will log an error message instead.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
