Unable to open a process definition in editor mode in business-central 6.4.6 if On Exit/Entry Script field is empty

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite (BPMS) 6.4.6


An issue happens by creating a process definition in JBDS 11 which had content from on entry/exit fields removed for a task node (i.e. User Task), then imported to business-central. By trying to open it in business-central, it opens only as XML editor.


It has been fixed in Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.4 Update 8, please apply it and test again.

For previous versions, a workaround is to simply remove these two lines from the attached bpmn2:

<tns:onEntry-script scriptFormat="http://www.java.com/java"/>
<tns:onExit-script scriptFormat="http://www.java.com/java"/>

with these removed the process can be imported without issues.
