Not able to add more than 15 workitemhandlers to kie-deployment-descriptor.xml via business central console in BPMS 6 release

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite
    • 6.1.x
  • Red Hat JBoss BRMS
    • 6.1.x


The Deployment Descriptors page can only display 15 workItemHandlers,we can not add any more handlers via the business-central console, and if we add more directly to the kie-deployment-descriptor.xml file, then they will not be displayed in Business Central console


The issue should be fixed in BPM Suite 6.4.4 and above. Please upgrade to latest version available and test it again.

Note that EDITOR tab should be used to add new items and not Source tab.
