| Typographical Conventions
Typographical Conventions
The following typographical conventions are used in this manual.
Table 1 General Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
SWDIR
TIBCO iProcess Engine installs into a directory. This directory is referenced in
documentation as SWDIR.
For example, if SWDIR is set to C:\swerver\staffw_nod1 on a Windows server
(on the C: drive), then the full path to the swutil command is
C:\swerver\staffw_nod1\bin\swutil.
code font
Code font identifies commands, code examples, filenames, pathnames, and
output displayed in a command window. For example:
Use MyCommand to start the foo process.
bold code
font
Bold code font is used in the following ways:
•
In procedures, to indicate what a user types. For example: Type admin.
•
In large code samples, to indicate the parts of the sample that are of
particular interest.
•
In command syntax, to indicate the default parameter for a command. For
example, if no parameter is specified, MyCommand is enabled:
MyCommand [enable | disable]
italic font
Key
combinations
Italic font is used in the following ways:
•
To indicate a document title. For example: See TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Concepts.
•
To introduce new terms For example: A portal page may contain several
portlets. Portlets are mini-applications that run in a portal.
•
To indicate a variable in a command or code syntax that you must replace.
For example: MyCommand PathName
Key name separated by a plus sign indicate keys pressed simultaneously. For
example: Ctrl+C.
Key names separated by a comma and space indicate keys pressed one after the
other. For example: Esc, Ctrl+Q.

Table 1 General Typographical Conventions (Cont’d)
Convention
Use
The note icon indicates information that is of special interest or importance, for
example, an additional action required only in certain circumstances.
The tip icon indicates an idea that could be useful, for example, a way to apply
the information provided in the current section to achieve a specific result.
The warning icon indicates the potential for a damaging situation, for example,
data loss or corruption if certain steps are taken or not taken.
Table 2 Syntax Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
[ ]
An optional item in a command or code syntax.
For example:
MyCommand [optional_parameter] required_parameter
|
A logical OR that separates multiple items of which only one may be chosen.
For example, you can select only one of the following parameters:
MyCommand para1 | param2 | param3
{ }
A logical group of items in a command. Other syntax notations may appear
within each logical group.
For example, the following command requires two parameters, which can be
either the pair param1 and param2, or the pair param3 and param4.
MyCommand {param1 param2} | {param3 param4}
In the next example, the command requires two parameters. The first parameter
can be either param1 or param2 and the second can be either param3 or param4:
MyCommand {param1 | param2} {param3 | param4}
In the next example, the command can accept either two or three parameters.
The first parameter must be param1. You can optionally include param2 as the
second parameter. And the last parameter is either param3 or param4.
MyCommand param1 [param2] {param3 | param4}

Release Notes
New Features
This section lists features added since the last major release (11.0.0) of this
product.
Release 11.3.0
The following are new features in this release.
Include MailID in Output Messages From IAPJMS (IPE-1602)
MailID is added to the output messages from IAPJMS so that users can use this
mailID to build a tag for each work item.
Publish Step Description or Extended Step Description (IPE-1603)
The extended step description, along with the step description, can be published
with a minimum length of 48 bytes for the messages which have a type_id equal
to 1, in IAPJMS.
To enable this feature, complete the following steps:
1. Open the staffcfg file in the SWDIR\etc directory.
2. Change the IAPSCHEMA2_1 parameter value to 1.
SWBATCH Returns Proper Return Codes When SWBATCH Fails (IPE-2322)
When all the START commands succeed, the return code from SWBATCH is
SW_SUCCESS. If a SWBATCH command fails, SWBATCH will continue to
execute the subsequent commands, and the return code will be the same as that of
the first failure command.
Audit Changes to Case Data (IPE-2258)
When the case data is changed via iProcess Insight, iProcess Workspace
(Browser), or the setCaseData SSO interface, rather than by the normal step
processing, such changes are logged in the audit trail.
See TIBCO iProcess Insight documentation for how to change case data in TIBCO
iProcess Insight.
See TIBCO iProcess Workspace (Browser) documentation for how to change case
data in TIBCO iProcess Workspace (Browser).
TIBCO iProcess Engine Release Notes
New Features 3
|
To audit such changes to case data, you must first set the
AUDIT_CASEDATA_CHANGED attribute to 1 by running swadm
set_attribute 1 SPO 0 AUDIT_CASEDATA_CHANGED 1.
A new audit message "133: Case data changed by USER" is generated to record
such changes to case data.
Reopen Cases via SSO Lite Stored Procedures (IPE-1579)
Users can resurrect cases via the SSO Lite stored procedures.
To resurrect cases in Oracle, run the following command in the database client
tool:
exec SSOLITE.sw_casereopen('proc_name',
'user_id','step_name',case_num);
where:
•
proc_name is the name of the procedure that you want to resurrect.
•
user_id is the name of the iProcess user who is resurrecting the cases.
•
step_name is the name of the case step that you want to resurrect.
•
case_num is the number of the cases that you want to resurrect.
Update Terminated Date/Time Display (IPE-1921)
Terminated Date/Time is now stored including Seconds. It can be viewed via the
SSO interface, or viewed in the clients such as iProcess Workspace (Browser).
A New Case Start Interface and Instruction (IPE-1593)
A new case start SAL interface and instruction are introduced when a case is
started via SSO or iProcess Objects server. When the step is addressed to the
current user, and the step is to be released, the iProcess Objects server internally
uses the new SAL interface. The case start is implemented in one single SAL
interface and with one single CASESTARTRELEASE message passing to the
StartCase interface.
The CASESTARTRELEASE message is sent directly from the iProcess Objects
Server to BG. BG processes the case start and immediately performs the actions
for the first step. By doing so, the load on WIS is reduced because the case start no
longer involves WIS at all.

plist -p Identifies Procedure Templates (IPE-2013)
The plist -p command can identify whether the procedure is a template. In the
Flag column returned by the command, flag T indicates that the procedure is a
sub-procedure parameter template, flag I indicates that the procedure is a
sub-procedure.
IMPORT and EXPORT XFR and XPDL Files to a Directory Outside of SWDIR\util (IPE-2257)
The XFR and XPDL files can be imported from and exported to a directory
outside of the SWDIR\util directory.
To import a procedure (for example, carpool.xfr) from a directory outside of
SWDIR\util (for example, c:\\), run the following command:
SWDIR\bin\swutil IMPORT c:\\carpool.xfr
where the .xfr file format is mandatory to make it work.
To export a procedure (for example, carpool.xfr) to a directory outside of
SWDIR\util (for example, c:\\), run the following command:
SWDIR\bin\swutil EMPORT carpool c:\\
Enable plist -wvV and plist -wVv (IPE-2321)
The plist -wvV and plist
items returned by the plist
commands are enabled, which return all the
and plist -wV commands.
-wVv
-wv
Installation Is Separated by Roles (IPE-2256)
Installation is separated by roles:
•
Binary Installation (by OS Admin) only copies binaries.
•
DB Installation (by DB Admin) only runs DDL script.
The separation of roles during installation can enhance security in customers’
environments because an OS administrator need not know some sensitive
information (for example: DB user’s credentials, server names, etc. ) any more.
The separation of roles during installation also facilitates the iProcess Engine
upgrade because you need not install iProcess Engine schemas if you still use the
existing database during upgrade.
See TIBCO iProcess Engine Installation for more information.

New Features 5

Create Log Files in a Rotational Manner (IPE-2613)
Log files, with the timestamp in the file name, are now created every day to record
the sw_warn, sw_error, swentobjsv, and swentobjsvUA messages separately. For
example: sw_warn20110831,sw_error20110831,swentobjsv20110831, and
swentobjsvUA20110831.
Log messages were recorded in one single log file titled as sw_warn, sw_error,
swentobjsv, and swentobjsvUA. When errors occur frequently, log files can
quickly become very large. It was not easy to archive old log files which could
lead to the loss of old log files.
Support Oracle 11g Client Libraries
Support for Oracle 11g client libraries (11.2.0.2) has been added.
HP Itanium platforms still require Oracle 10g client libraries (10.2.0.4). All other
platforms require Oracle 11g client libraries (11.2.0.2).
See TIBCO iProcess Engine Installation for more information.
Pass Complete Arrays Into and out of Sub-procedures (IPE-2535)
Complete arrays can be passed into and out of sub-procedures. The following
example shows how to pass complete arrays into and out of sub-procedures.
To pass complete arrays into and out of sub-procedures, do as follows:
1. Prepare the MAINA main procedure embedded with the SUBNA
sub-procedure:
— the steps of MAINA and SUBNA are defined with Array fields, for
example, TEX, INT, NUM, DAT, TIM, MEM , and COM.
— the steps of MAINA and SUBNA are defined with the SW_GEN_IDX field.
— the input and output mappings for case data are defined.
See TIBCO iProcess Modeler Advanced Design for more information.
2. Open the main procedure in TIBCO iProcess Modeler, double-click the
sub-procedure to open the Sub-Procedure Call Definition dialog.
3. Click the Input tab, and click the Pass Array field of the items (for example,
TEXIN, MEMIN) to select Pass Array.
4. Click the Output tab, and click the Pass Array field of the items (for example,
TEXOUT, MEMOUT) to select Pass Array, as shown in Figure 1.

Type 1 in the SW_GEN_IDX field, the TEX field value changes to sa2, and the
MEM field value changes to sq2. Type 2 in the SW_GEN_IDX field, the TEX
field value changes to sa3, and the MEM field value changes to sq3.
When a single field in a sub-procedure is mapped to an array field in a main
procedure and you select Pass Array in the Output tab, the field in the
sub-procedure returns nothing to the array field in the main procedure. This is
because selecting Pass Array causes the non-array data to be discarded.
If you select Pass Array in the Output tab for a dynamic sub-call, the last returned
array will overwrite all the previous arrays returned from the sub-procedure.
This feature is also supported in TIBCO Business Studio - BPM Edition 3.5.2 with
TIBCO Business Studio - iProcess Add-in 3.5.0. See TIBCO Business Studio - BPM
Edition documentation and TIBCO Business Studio - iProcess Add-in
documentation for more information.
Prioritizing the Work Performed by Background Processes (IPE-2480)
You can now set priorities ranging from 1 to 999 (where 1 is the highest priority)
for internal message queues when passing messages between iProcess processes
such as from the background and the WISes, or from SSO Lite to the background.
Its default value is 50.
The messages with higher internal message queue priorities are processed earlier
than those with lower priorities, and the message with the highest priority will
automatically be the next message processed, even if there is a backlog in the
queue.
If the internal message queue priorities are not set, the messages will be processed
in the order of SW_CP_ VALUE or SW_IP_VALUE when using iProcess
Workspace (Windows) to process work items.
For example, if a case sets its value for SW_CP_ VALUE to 25, then all the
messages for that case being sent around the system will have a value of 25, and
automatically be processed before any messages with the default value 50. The
value of SW_IP_VALUE is only valid while a work item is in a queue. If priority
escalation is enabled, SW_IP_VALUE can increase while in the queue. When a
work item is released if SW_IP_VALUE has changed, it will be used to set the
priority for the release from the queue (but only once for that operation). After
that, the case priority SW_CP_VALUE will then continue to be used. To propagate
that value to subsequent messages, a release script which copies the value of
SW_IP_VALUE into the field SW_CP_VALUE can keep the case running at the
new priority level.

Release Notes
See TIBCO iProcess Modeler - Advanced Design for more information about SW_CP_
VALUE or SW_IP_VALUE.
If the internal message queue priorities are set, the messages will be processed in
the order of message queue priorities no matter the work item priority.
To set the internal message queue priorities, do as follows:
•
From SSO LITE, run the following commands:
— run SW_SET_PRIORITY to set the internal message queue priorities. For
example: exec SSOLITE.sw_set_priority('90');
— run SW_UNSET_PRIORITY to restore the default message queue priorities.
•
•
From SWBATCH, run the following commands:
—
START [-r|-u|-m|-vX.Y|-sN] [-c] [-e|-a[D] datafile] [-P
priority] <node|-> <procname> <stepname|-> <casedesc>
—
EVENT [-e[p][r|R]|-a[D][p][r|R] datafile] [-P priority]

Bulk Operations for SSO Lite (IPE-2423)
Support for bulk operations has been added by adding the SW_SET_MBOX and
SW_UNSET_MBOX procedures.
The SW_SET_MBOX procedure can tell SSO Lite to use a different MBOX SET for
bulk purges or bulk case starts, and can still use the other MBOX SET for normal
operations such as delayed releases.
The SW_UNSET_MBOX procedure can be called to restore using the default
MBOX SET for all operations.
The following example shows how to set another MBOX SET for bulk operations:

Redirect the Work Items of a Deleted User (IPE-2560)
When a user is deleted, the work items which are currently in the deleted user's
queue can be redirected to the supervisor’s queue, to a user-specified destination,
or to the admin user’s queue. The work items, which arrive to a deleted user after
the user has been deleted, will be delivered to the undelivered queue.
The following two process attributes are introduced to redirect the deleted user’s
work items:
•
BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST
•
BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION
BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST
The default value of the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute is 1.
When the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute is set to 1, the deleted user’s
work items are redirected to the first supervisor’s queue.
When the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute is set to 0, the deleted user’s
work items are redirected to the destination queue specified by
BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION.
BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION
When the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute is set to 0, and the
BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION is set to a destination (for example, user_test), the
deleted user’s work items are redirected to the user_test’s queue.
When the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute is set to 0, and the
BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION is not set, the deleted user’s work items are
redirected to the admin user’s queue.
How to redirect the deleted user’s work items
To redirect the deleted user’s work items to the first supervisor’s queue:
1. Set the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute to 1 by running the
following command:
SWDIR\util\swadm
set_attribute 1 BG 0 BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST 1
To redirect the deleted user’s work items to the user-specified queue (for example,
user_test):
TIBCO iProcess Engine Release Notes
New Features 13
|
1. Set the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute to 0 by running the
following command:
SWDIR\util\swadm
set_attribute 1 BG 0 BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST 0
2. Set the BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION attribute to a by running the following
command:
SWDIR\util\swadm
user_test
set_attribute 1 BG 0 BG_LEAVER_DESTINATION
To redirect the deleted user’s work items to the admin user’s queue:
1. Set the BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST attribute to 0 by running the
following command:
SWDIR\util\swadm
set_attribute 1 BG 0 BG_LEAVER_SUPER_AS_DEST 0
When a user is deleted, an entry is inserted into the leavers table, and a
corresponding entry is also inserted into the redir_defn table. These records will
be removed automatically when the following conditions are met:
•
All the work items of the deleted user are redirected.
•
The period specified by WQS_LEAVER_PERIOD expires.
Note: WQS_LEAVER_PERIOD is set by minutes and its default value is 60.
•
Perform a movesysinfo request or iProcess Engine is shut down.
Note: When iProcess Engine starts up, the timestamp column for all records in
the leavers table are updated to the current time.
If the records in the leavers table and the redir_defin table are not removed, they
will be removed when the deleted user is added into iProcess Engine again.
Make Purging Many Cases More Efficient for Oracle (IPE-2596)
Purging many cases can be made more efficient by adding the
USE_NEXT_MESSAGE_TO_DEQUEUE attribute, which is set to 0 by default.
When the USE_NEXT_MESSAGE_TO_DEQUEUE attribute is set to 1, the
dequeuing process loads all messages that are currently in the queue, and iterate
through them as a single result set. After the dequeuing process dequeues one
message, it dequeues the others in the result set without performing any new
query for each message. Therefore, it’s more efficient to purge large amount of
cases.
Any other messages outside the result set, even with higher internal message
queue priorities, will not be picked up until all the messages in the result set have
been dequeued.
TIBCO iProcess Engine Release Notes

Release Notes
This is only of benefit when there is a large build up of messages in the Oracle
AQs, for example, when a large number of messages are injected in as part of a
batch. If there is no build up of messages in the Oracle AQs, there is no benefit to
this setting.
Map an Attribute Which Contains an Underscore to One Which Doesn’t Have One in LDAP
(IPE-2604)
LDAP does not allow attributes with an underscore. An attribute with an
underscore in iProcess Engine can be mapped to an attribute without an
underscore in LDAP.
See LDAPCONF Utility User’s Guide for more information about how to map an
iProcess Engine attribute to the corresponding LDAP attribute.
iProcess Engine Startup Performance Improvements (IPE-2552, IPE-2558, IPE-2563)
iProcess Engine startup performance has been significantly improved due to the
iProcess Objects Server startup performance improvements, as shown in the
following two aspects:
•
iProcess Objects Server is started with WIS together, moving up in the startup
order.
•
higher speed to load users and groups.
Log Files Directory Is Configurable (IPE-2732)
You can specify the log files directory by adding it in line 19 of the staffpms file
located in the SWDIR\etc directory.
Ensure that the log files directory you specify is available, and that has the same
permissions to access it as the original log files directory.
Optionally Migrate Only Live Cases (IPE-2337)
You can choose to migrate only live cases from previous versions to a new version
in one of the following ways:
•
migrate only live cases for deployment from TIBCO Business Studio to TIBCO
iProcess Engine by running the following command:
swadm set_attribute 1 RPC_TCP_LI 1 MIGRATE_LIVE_CASES 1
Case migration is not supported by TIBCO Business Studio currently.

TIBCO iProcess Engine Now Supports UTF-8 (MR 38428)
TIBCO iProcess Engine now supports UTF-8 encoding. This is a choice that you
can specify when you install or upgrade the iProcess Engine.
The advantage of using UTF-8 is that it allows you support multiple regions
within a single character set. For example, an enterprise operating globally could
support data in Chinese, Japanese, Russian and English character sets in the same
database. Work can be partitioned so that an end user working in this installation
will normal see only work in his or her language.

Include Open and Kept Data in IAPJMS (MR 38272)
When a work item is opened, changed, then requeued, IAPJMS now publishes the
latest data (from the requeued item, rather than from the central case data).
TIBCO Business Studio Deployment Through a Firewall (MR 38271)
A TIBCO Business Studio process can now be deployed through a firewall.
Only Upgrade COM+ and RPC When Necessary (MR 38504)
The installer has been enhanced to check the versions of these components and
only update them if necessary.
Allow EMPTYMBOXSLEEP to be Specified in Intervals Less Than One Second (MR 36301)
The EMPTYMBOXSLEEP process attribute has been enhanced so that values up
to (and including) 60 are treated as a measure of the time to sleep in seconds, and
values of greater than 60 are treated as the sleep time in milliseconds.
Configuration of Uncommitted Reads (MR 38267 (Parent MR 36449))
A new process attribute XPC_READ_UNCOMMITTED is provided to allow
configuration of uncommitted reads during an XPC SELECT.
If this is set to 1, XPC is enabled to use uncommitted reads. If set to 0 (which is the
default) uncommitted reads cannot be used.
See the TIBCO iProcess Engine Administrator's Guide for details about setting
process attributes.
New Configuration Flag in staffcfg File to Predict Step Duration (MR 38407 (Parent MR 34440))
A new configuration flag has been added to the staffcfg file to define how
predicted step duration is to be calculated. See TIBCO iProcess Engine
Administrator's Guide for more information.
Ability to Configure Signals (MR 38648 (Parent MR 36109))
You now have the ability to configure signals that threads are blocked from
receiving.
If you wish to enable threads to be blocked from receiving signals then you will
need to modify the $SWDIR/etc/staffpms file, adding the information to line 17
of the file.

The valid values for IDENTIFY_SPO_MACHINE_BY are:
- HOSTNAME: Returns the host name (the default).
- IP: Returns the IP address.

MR 38407
(Parent

A new configuration flag is needed in the staffcfg file to define how predicted step
duration is to be calculated.
Corrected. The get_myaddress() function is no longer used.
Implemented. A new flag has been added to the staffcfg file as follows:
Flag: DYNDEADPRED
Section: STAFF
Default Value: 1
Unit: n/a
Range: 0 or 1
Description: Defines how the predicted step duration is to be calculated.
Tuning:
If the value is 1, then if the 'Use Deadline for Step Duration' flag is set then use the
deadline as the predicted duration, otherwise, use either the configured duration or
the deadline depending on which would elapse first.
For example, if the deadline was set to expire in one hour and the duration was set
to three hours then the deadline would be used for the predicted duration.
Conversely if the deadline was set to expire in three hours and the duration was set
to one hour then the duration would be used for the predicted duration.
If the value is 0, then if the 'Use Deadline for Step Duration' flag is set then use the
deadline as the predicted duration, otherwise use the configured duration for the
predicted duration.
See ’Defining Duration of Procedure Steps’ in the TIBCO iProcess Modeler - Advanced
Design guide for the Use Deadline for Step Duration flag, and see the TIBCO
iProcess Engine Administrator’s Guide for editing the staffcfg file.

Description
MR 38648
(Parent
MR 36109)
Add the ability to configure signals that threads are blocked from receiving.
Corrected.
If you wish to enable threads to be blocked from receiving signals then you will
need to modify the $SWDIR/etc/staffpms file, adding the information to line 17 of
the file.
For example, to add blocking for the SIGALRM (14) signal the last few lines of the
file will look like this:
QPARAM1\QPARAM2\QPARAM3\QPARAM4\CP_V...
<blank line - unless UVAPI is configured>
<blank line>
14
If you wish to add more signals to the list they will need to be separated by the '\'
character:
QPARAM1\QPARAM2\QPARAM3\QPARAM4\CP_V...
<blank line - unless UVAPI is configured>
<blank line>

Release 11.0.2
Defect #
Description
MR 37181
(Parent
MR 36247)
TIBCO iProcess Engine uses Oracle Events for inter-process communication.
Because it does not use a fixed port number, iProcess cannot communicate with
Oracle Events across a firewall.
Corrected. It is now possible to specify a range of AQ port numbers to be used in
iProcess for communication through the firewall with Oracle Events.
Ensure that you specify enough AQ ports for iProcess system processes. On a
typical system, you should specify a minimum of 7 ports for iProcess (sentinel and
utility processes), plus an additional port for each process defined in the
process_config database table.
In addition to configuring the AQ port range in iProcess as described below, ensure
that your firewall is configured to allow access for the iProcess AQ port range that
you defined as well as the iProcess RPC port range, and any required Oracle ports
(such as the default port 1521).
The following two new tables are provided:
aq_port_range_conf: this records port ranges including the start port number
and the count of the ports.
aq_port_range: this records the state of every port in every range.
The following new commands are provided in the SWDIR\util\swadm utility to
manage the two new tables:
Use the following command to add a new port range in the aq_port_range_conf
table.
swadm add_aq_port_range {<machine_id>|ALL|0} <start_port> <count>
<machine_id> - The ID of machine to which the port range is added. If this
field is input as "ALL" or "0", the port range will be added to all machines.
<start_port> - The port at which the port range starts.
<count> - The range size for the port range.
This command outputs a <range_id> which identifies this port range.

Defect #
Description
MR 37966
Modify RPC layer to use an interrupt socket and allow the batching together of RPC
calls.
Implemented. A new process attribute RPC_SVR_CONTROL has been introduced.
Permissible values in the form B[,<batch size>] are default, 0 or <n>, where <n> is
the number of items to be batched. The default value is 20. For example,
B = Set batch size to default (20)
B,0 = Turn off batching of RPC calls
B,10 = Set batch size to 10
Using this attribute reduces the overhead in processing RPC calls individually. Any
slight overhead in waiting for 20 (or the number specified) to be batched should not
be noticeable.
MR 38005
Batch up new item requests in the WIS so more can be done for a single write lock.
Implemented. A new process attribute WIS_NEW_ITEM_BATCH_SIZE has been
introduced.
Permissible values are 0 or <n>, with the default being 0, and where <n> is the
number of items to be batched to a maximum value of 500000.
0 = batching is not used.
<n> = batching is used.
If you have batching turned on and fewer items than the batch size value number of
items come into the queue, then the update thread, when it next wakes up, will
process any items batched up. Or, if another RPC request comes in to add a new
item that takes the batch size over the configured value, then all items will be
processed.
Using this attribute means that incoming items from the WISMDB are batched up
before the index is updated (similar to pre 10.3 versions). This reduces the load on
the system, but does mean that new items take longer to appear in the queue (by at
most the WIS_REFRESH_INDEX period of time).

Defect #
Description
MR 38011
Enable the disabling of priority escalation use in the WIS process.
Implemented. A new process attribute WIS_USE_PRIORITY_ESCALATION has
been introduced.
Permissible values are 0 or 1, with the default being 1.
0 = priority ageing will no longer be processed. Every item that is displayed
will use the default priority as set in the staffcfg file. Changes to priority fields
will not affect the current priority value of a work item.
1 = priority ageing will still function.
This attribute can be turned off for a small performance and CPU benefit. However,
you should only do this if you are not using the Priority escalation feature as
switching it off will prevent the priority value being automatically decremented. Be
careful to ensure you are not using this feature before disabling it.

MR 38050
The gathering of RPC call stats within the WQS process should be configurable.
Corrected.
Implemented. A new process attribute WQS_GATHER_RPC_STATS has been
introduced.
Permissible values are 0 or 1, with the default being 0.
0 = RPC stats gathering is turned off.
1 = RPC stats gathering is turned on.
When the attribute is turned off and then on again, any previously gathered stats
are not retained.
To use the attribute, turn on R=2 debug on the WQS process, set the process
attribute and the stats will be seen in the debug log.
TIBCO recommend that this attribute be turned off unless you specifically require
these stats.

select the Add option to manually add the SW_DOMAIN and WISCACHE
attributes as LDAP directory attributes. See Chapter 2, "Creating and
Maintaining iProcess User Data in the LDAP Directory" in the LDAPCONF
Utility User’s Guide for more information.

Summary A temporary file is always left behind when installing the iProcess
Engine, whether the installation is successful or not. The location of the file is
defined by the TEMP system variable. The name of the file is _ISTMPn.DIR
where n is a number that increments each time you install the iProcess Engine.
For example, _ISTMP1.DIR, _ISTMP2.DIR and so on.
Workaround Manually delete the temporary file(s) once the iProcess Engine
installation is complete.

Summary If the WIS process handles an update event (for example, from a
SWDIR\bin\swutil EVENT -p command) while a user has a work item open,
the Case Description and WQ Parameters revert to the values they had prior to
the update when the work item is kept.
Workaround None.
CR 18901
Summary If you have installed the iProcess COM Server Plug-in and an Oracle
failover occurs, iProcess Engine background processes may stop working. An
affected process cannot perform any further work until the iProcess Engine is
restarted, and writes a 1945-Database error message to the
SWDIR\logs\sw_error file every few seconds. For example:
2006/07/04 12:31:45(BGPREDICT:1:7756:1:pro:idl.c:7.145:5825):
1945-Database error: idl_SQL_allocate_connection_from_pool()
idl_SQL_enlist_connection() Failed (Statement ID - 0) (ORA-25402:
transaction must roll back)
Workaround To stop this message being written to the SWDIR\logs\sw_error
file you must stop and restart the iProcess Engine.
This problem is currently under investigation with Oracle.
CR 18799
Summary If lots of MOVESYSINFO operations are being performed by BG
processes, then the other processes that have to recache the user/group
information might fail due to becoming deadlocked.
It is also possible that the caching process might load group membership or
attribute values that don't match the attributes or queues loaded. This is because
the caching process would first load the queues, then the attributes and finally
the attribute values. If a MOVESYSINFO changed the attribute values before
they were loaded then they may not match the attributes that were loaded prior
to the MOVESYSINFO.
Workaround Once all operations have been completed, modify the user/group
area and perform one last MOVESYSINFO.
CR 18631
Summary If you have an outstanding test mail item for an unreleased procedure
and you delete the step from the procedure that the outstanding mail refers to,
the test mail item can no longer be accessed. This is to be expected as the step has
been deleted from the procedure. However, if you then purge the case for this
inaccessible step the case is purged but the item is never removed from the
message queue.
Workaround None.

Summary When a user logs in to the iProcess Workspace (Windows) test queues
are not displayed in Work Queue Manager. This is because the user's personal
work queue (from which the test queues are created) has not been cached yet.
Workaround If a new work item is sent to a test queue this causes the Rebuild
List button to appear. Alternatively, the user can select their personal work
queue and press F5. This also causes the Rebuild List button to appear. Clicking
Rebuild List displays the test queues.

Workaround None.
CR 17669
Summary If you use iProcess activity monitoring on an iProcess Engine that uses
a node cluster architecture, and you enable iProcess activity monitoring on the
master node but not on one or more slave nodes, activity monitoring is disabled.
(This is because the slave node settings contradict the master node settings.)
Workaround Make sure that you enable iProcess activity monitoring on both the
master node and on each slave node when you install the iProcess Engine. See
the iProcess Engine Installation Guide for more information about how to do this.
CR 17603
Summary The J2EE standard supports the use of different security credentials
(username and password) for JNDI InitialContext and JMS connections.
However, in this version of the iProcess Engine, you can only define a single
username and password for the IAPJMS process. The process uses these
credentials for both JNDI InitialContext and JMS connections.
Note that the IAPJMSConnect.SecurityPrinciple property defines the
username. The IAPJMSConnect.SecurityCredentials property defines the
password. Both properties are defined in the iapjms.properties file. See Chapter
9, “Administering Activity Monitoring”, in the TIBCO iProcess Engine
Administrator’s Guide for more information.

Summary If you are using iProcess activity monitoring, Monitor Event Detail
(MED) messages with ActivityIDs 16, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 28 do not display the
name of the audit user in the <AuditUser> element. Instead, they display
information that depends on the particular message.
For example, when a sub-procedure is started a MED message with ActivityID
= 16 is generated. The <AuditUser> element in this case shows the SubCaseID of
the sub-case that has been started, not the name of the audit user, as shown
below.
<AuditMessage>Sub-Case started from "SUBCALL1"</AuditMessage>
<AuditStep Name="SUBCALL1">

Summary Adding a numeric user attribute with decimal places actually creates
an attribute with 24 Characters and no decimal places.
This happens if the attribute is added using the iProcess Administrator or via
SWDIR\bin\swutil USERINFO. For example, if you add a numeric attribute
with length 10.2, it is actually created as a numeric attribute with length 24.0.
Workaround None
CR 15444
Summary During the upgrade process, the iProcess Engine services are deleted
and then re-created. If the Services window is open during this process the
system will not actually delete the service but will mark it for deletion, which
will be performed at the next reboot.
Workaround If this error occurs during upgrade you will need to reboot the
machine and re-run the upgrade process.
CR 15334
Summary When you upgrade from a Version 9 Process Engine the entries in the
at_id column of the audit_trail table are migrated to the audit_usecs column.
at_id values that are greater than 1 million are truncated after upgrade, which
means that the correct ordering of audit trail rows is lost.
This is only an issue when the number rolls over from 6 to 7 digits and the audit
trail items are from the same case and have the same timestamp. If all the
numbers are above 6 digits then all entries are truncated and ordering is
preserved.
Workaround None

Workaround Either:
•
Use the equality operator, =, instead; for example, SW_CASENUM = "2", or
•
Use a * wildcard character in the regular expression; for example, "1234*".
This will succeed, but will produce a wider range of results than the ?
character should; any case number that starts with 1234 will match.

CR 10878
Summary When a case is being processed, the
MAX_SUB_PROCEDURE_DEPTH limit (from the process_attributes table) is
checked when a sub-case is started. If this limit is going to be exceeded, the
sub-procedure should not start. Instead, an error message is written to the
SWDIR\logs\sw_warn file and the next step (at the immediate parent level)
should be started instead.
However, this functionality does not work correctly in this version of the
iProcess Engine. If the MAX_SUB_PROCEDURE_DEPTH limit is reached (not
exceeded):
•
the sub-procedure is not started.
•
the procedure jumps back to the main procedure, and the next step at that
level is started.
•
any data set in any intermediate sub-procedure steps is lost. This means that
any further step processing can contain incorrect case data.

Summary
Summary When installing TIBCO iProcess Engine, UTF-8 is not supported by
default.
Workaround Manually set up support for UTF-8 in TIBCO iProcess Engine.
During installing TIBCO iProcess Engine:
— For interactive installation
For a new installation, the default behaviour should be NOT supporting
UTF-8.
For upgrading, if old version supports UTF-8, the default behaviour
should be supporting UTF-8, and it should NOT be editable. If old
version not supports UTF-8, the default behaviour should be NOT
supporting UTF-8, and it should be editable.
— For silent installation:
If it is upgrade and old version supports UTF-8, the behaviour should be
supporting UTF-8 and it should NOT be changed. Otherwise, whether
supporting UTF-8 is up to the value set in the response file.
See TIBCO iProcess Engine Architecture Guide for more details about configuring
your system to support UTF-8.
Summary The PM_AUTO_BOOT parameter should not be set in a cluster of the
TIBCO iProcess Engine nodes.
Workaround Follow these steps to set the PM_AUTO_BOOT parameter and start
the cluster:
1. Set the PM_AUTO_BOOT parameter to 0.
2. Run swstart
-p
to start the sentinels on all nodes.
3. Run swstart to start TIBCO iProcess Engine on any node.
Summary TIBCO iProcess Web Services Server Plug-in does not update the
memo field correctly if the database is using UTF-8.

Release Notes
Summary
Summary If you upgrade from a TIBCO iProcess Engine Version 10.5 to a
TIBCO iProcess Engine Version 10.6 or later with a node cluster installation,
your iProcess system will have an extra SWLIB_PATH process attribute.
The SWLIB_PATH process attribute is created when you install the iProcess
Engine (i.e. 0 ALL 0 SWLIB_PATH). In older versions of the iProcess Engine,
one SWLIB_PATH process attribute was created whether your iProcess Engine
installation scenario was a single node or a node cluster.
In the iProcess Engine Version 10.6, a change was implemented that meant that
if you install the iProcess Engine in a node cluster, a SWLIB_PATH process
attribute is created for every node in the cluster (i.e. 1 ALL 0 SWLIB_PATH, 2
ALL 0 SWLIB_PATH and so on). This means that, if you upgrade from an
iProcess Engine Version 10.5 to an iProcess Engine Version 10.6 or later with a
node cluster installation, you will have a SWLIB_PATH process attribute for
your original iProcess Engine installation and a SWLIB_PATH process attribute
for each iProcess Engine in your node cluster. The SWLIB_PATH process
attribute created with your original iProcess Engine installation (i.e. 0 ALL 0
SWLIB_PATH) is not required, but is not removed as part of the upgrade
process. However, it can be removed manually using SWDIR/util/swadm.
Summary The LDAPCONF Utility’s test connection file output option uses
UNIX carriage returns. This makes it difficult to view the output in Notepad.
Workaround Use another text editor, for example, Wordpad.
Summary Services are not removed correctly if the Microsoft Management
Console dialog is open.
If the Microsoft Management Console dialog is open and a service is stopped
and then deleted, the Startup Type of the service can be shown as Disabled.
The service will be removed when the Microsoft Management Console dialog
is closed.
The problem does not occur if you are using command line utilities. This is a
known problem documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Summary
Summary Disabling cached logon information in a domain environment.
By default, Windows 2000 caches previous users’ logon information locally.
This ensures that users are able to log on if a domain logon server is
unavailable during subsequent logon attempts. However, this feature could
result in users with invalid passwords still being able to log on to the iProcess
Suite. For example, a user whose password has been changed attempts to
logon to the iProcess Suite with their old password. If the domain controller is
not available to validate the current password but the old password is still
cached locally, the logon attempt will be accepted.
You can prevent this from happening by disabling the cached logon
information feature in Windows 2000. If you do this, a user will not be able to
logon to the iProcess Suite if the domain controller is not available to validate
their password.
For more information about how to disable logon caching, please refer to the
Cached Logon Information article (Article ID: Q172931), available from the
Microsoft Personal Support Centre at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q172931/
Summary Operating system dates later than 31st December 2037 are not
supported.
Although designed to process dates up to the year 3000, the iProcess Suite has
been modified - in the interests of data integrity - to shut down if the system
date exceeds 31st December 2037.
The iProcess Suite uses the time() system call to get the system date and time.
This call returns the system date and time as the number of seconds since
midnight, 1st January 1970 as a signed integer (32-bits). This means that the
time() function (which is commonly referred to as UNIX time) is unable to
return a time beyond 19th January 2038, 03:14:07 UCT.
To protect the integrity of your iProcess installation, the iProcess Engine will
create a file SWDIR\logs\sw_error and shut itself down if the system returns a
date beyond 31 December 2037. You should not use operating system dates
later than this. Potentially, ALL applications that use the time function are at
risk beyond this date.

Other Information
TIBCO iProcess® Conductor EAI Order Step Should be Preceded by a
Transaction Control Step
Before invoking the iProcess Conductor Order plug-in for the first time it is
important that the initial transaction for the process in which it is executing is
committed.
If you use an EAI Order step close to the beginning of a procedure or
sub-procedure, you should therefore place a Transaction Control Step
immediately before it.
Using SWDIR\util\plist
You can use the SWDIR\util\plist X option to provide backwards compatibility
with Staffware 2000. For example, using plist -pv does not report counts, but you
can use plist -pvX to specify Staffware 2000 compatibility so that counts are
derived. Enter SWDIR\util\plist at the command line to display a full list of
options.
Product Re-branding
Further product re-branding was carried out in the 10.6.0 release, as follows:
•
TIBCO Staffware Process Suite™ was renamed TIBCO iProcess Suite™
•
TIBCO iProcess® Client (Windows) was renamed TIBCO iProcess® Workspace
(Windows)
•
TIBCO iProcess® Client (Browser) was renamed TIBCO iProcess® Workspace
(Browser)
The term "Staffware" was replaced by "iProcess".
You may still see references to Staffware and to the old product names within the
software and in some documentation.

Preface
TIBCO iProcess Objects Server receives requests for services or data from a client
application developed with either TIBCO iProcess Objects (COM, Java, or C++) or
TIBCO iProcess Server Objects (Java or .NET). It processes the request, then
makes the appropriate call to a TIBCO iProcess Engine to initiate the desired
service or obtain the desired information.

Release Notes
New Features
This section lists features added since the last major (11.0.0) release of this
product..
Earlier Versions
For details of the changes implemented in earlier versions of the product, see the
readme file and release notes for that particular product release.
Release 11.3.0
The following are new features in this release:
Start Case Only If All Necessary Information Is Available (IPE-2191)
When users start a case via SSO java code with both aReleaseItem and
aValidateFields set to be true, and do not fill in all the required fields in the first
step, the case can’t be started and an error is reported.
In previous releases, if you did not fill in all the required fields in the form, the
step could not be released, but the case was started with an error reported.
Audit Changes to Case Data (IPE-2259)
When the case data is changed via iProcess Insight, iProcess Workspace
(Browser), or the setCaseData SSO interface, rather than by the normal step
processing, such changes are logged in the audit trail.
See TIBCO iProcess Insight documentation for how to change case data in TIBCO
iProcess Insight.
See TIBCO iProcess Workspace (Browser) documentation for how to change case
data in TIBCO iProcess Workspace (Browser).
To audit such changes to case data, you must first set the
AUDIT_CASEDATA_CHANGED attribute to 1 by running swadm
set_attribute 1 SPO 0 AUDIT_CASEDATA_CHANGED 1.
A new audit message "133: Case data changed by USER" is generated to record
such changes to case data.
TIBCO iProcess Objects Server Release Notes
New Features 3
|
A New Case Start Interface and Instruction (IPE-2239)
A new case start SAL interface and instruction are introduced when a case is
started via SSO or iProcess Objects server. When the step is addressed to the
current user, and the step is to be released, the iProcess Objects server internally
uses the new SAL interface. The case start is implemented in one single SAL
interface and with one single CASESTARTRELEASE message passing to the
StartCase interface.
The CASESTARTRELEASE message is sent directly from the SPO server to BG.
BG processes the case start and immediately performs the actions for the first
step. By doing so, the load on WIS is reduced because the case start no longer
involves WIS at all.
iProcess Objects Server Startup Performance Improvements (IPE-2554, IPE-2562)
iProcess Objects Server startup performance has been improved significantly in
the following two aspects:
•
iProcess Objects Server is started simultaneously with WIS. This means that it
starts sooner in the startup procedure.
•
Users and groups can be loaded at higher speeds.
Log Files Directory Is Configurable (IPE-2733)
You can specify the log files directory by adding it in line 19 of the staffpms file
located in the SWDIR\etc directory.
Ensure that the log files directory you specify is available, and that has the same
permissions to access it as the original log files directory.
Release 11.1.3
There are no new features in this release.
Release 11.1.2
There are no new features in this release.
Release 11.1.1

Release Notes
Release 11.1.0
This release is only for the purpose of bringing the version number in line with
the version number of the TIBCO iProcess Engine. There are no new features.
Release 11.0.1
The following is a new feature in this release.
SAL Session Wait Timeout Configuration Parameter Added (35652)
The SALWaitTimeout configuration parameter has been added to the iProcess
Engine to allow you to specify, in milliseconds, the amount of time the server will
wait for a SAL session to become free before returning an error to the client.
The iProcess Engine Configuration Utility has been updated to include a new
field on the General tab to specify this value. The default value for
SALWaitTimeout is 60000 milliseconds (60 seconds).
If the server times out waiting for the SAL session to return, it returns an
ER_ACQUIRE error (-158 - "error acquiring a user's mutex and SAL session") to
the client. It also writes the following to the log file:
"process_msg: acquire_user (user) timed out (-158)"
where process_msg is the name of the function where the timeout occurred, and
user is the name of the user that timed out trying to get a SAL session.
Also, note that the AutoFwdInterval configuration parameter was moved from
the General tab to a new Auto Forward tab in the configuration utility to make
room for the new SALWaitTimeout parameter.
Release 11.0.0
The following are new features in this release.
Work Queue Deltas via a Subscription to a JMS Topic Support Added (33057)
Client applications can now obtain work queue deltas via a subscription to a JMS
topic. This functionality was added to iProcess Server Objects in MR 33058.
The iProcess Engine has been updated to support this new functionality on
clients.

New Features 5

User Preference Support Added (32557)
Client applications can now set, receive, and delete user preference data as a text
string in the iProcess Engine database. This functionality was added to iProcess
Server Objects in MR 32433.
iProcess Engine has been updated to support this new functionality on clients.

Other Information 7

Other Information
Large Number of User Logins May Cause Problems
If your client application performs a large number of user logins to the iProcess
Engine (for example, in a stateless or web environment), it may experience
problems that are a result of running out of TCP ports, or attempting to connect to
a TCP port above 5000. You may see one of the following problems on either the
client or iProcess Engine:
•
the system suspending or exhibiting unexpected behavior
•
unable to create new connections to the server
•
Event ID 2009 "Number of sessions exceeds 2048" may be written to the event
log
•
the local computer responds with a WSENOBUFS (10055) error
For information about resolving these issues, refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base
articles Q149532 and Q196271. These can be found at:
http://support.microsoft.com.
Upgrading from Earlier Version May Cause Error Messages in Log File
Upgrading from an earlier version of the iProcess Engine to version i10.0 (0.0) or
later may cause error messages similar to the following to appear in the iProcess
Engine log file:
ERROR|error in sal_pver_audlist procname($EMAIL) err(0) curridx(1)
ERROR|error in sal_pver_audlist procname($SYSTEM) err(0)
curridx(1)
ERROR|error in sal_pver_audlist procname(CARPOOL) err(0)
curridx(1)
These messages are a result of the upgrade, but an error has not occurred.
Disregard the messages.
Node Name Cannot Contain Certain Characters if Using Access Database
The iProcess Engine uses the Microsoft Access database to store information
concerning auto forwarding, view-only queues, and anonymous logons. If you
are using any of this functionality, the name of the TIBCO iProcess Engine (node
name) cannot include any of the following characters:
! * = ( ) { } [ ] ; @ \ , ?
TIBCO iProcess Objects Server Release Notes
8
|
Release Notes
If the node name contains any of the listed characters, the iProcess Engine will fail
on startup. This is a result of a limitation in ODBC that does not allow the Access
connect string (which includes the node name) to contain these characters.
Must Normalize Case Data to View Cases
When you install the iProcess Engine, there is a checkbox in the Configuration
window that is used to enable a feature called Case Data Normalization. If you
are using an application developed with iProcess Objects or iProcess Server
Objects, you must enable case data normalization. If it is not enabled, cases will
not appear in the case list.
Case data normalization can be enabled either during the installation, or at a later
time using the Case Data Normalization Utility, swnormcd.
For more information about case data normalization and using swnormcd, see
TIBCO iProcess Engine Administrator’s Guide.

The tab order through the fields on the iProcess Engine Configuration
Utility is incorrect.
Corrected. The Tab key now moves the cursor from field to field in a

Forward tab), tabbing from the last field on the page moves the focus
to the OK button, then to the Cancel, Apply, and Set All Defaults

The table in this section lists known issues in this release. Known issues are
problems that are not scheduled to be resolved in a later release.
Known Issues
Summary Invalid data type causes error.
If an incorrect type of data is passed into a field (such astext is passed into a
numeric field) when executing the StartCaseEx method, an "Invalid data for
field" error is thrown by the iProcess Engine. Even though invalid data is
passed, the case is still started. Field values in the FieldValues array prior to
the invalid data are correctly assigned to their respective fields. Field values
in the FieldValues array after the invalid data are not assigned to their respective fields.
Summary Same user logged on multiple times causes degradation or
possible errors.
The same user logging on multiple times to the same iProcess Engine may
result in performance degradation. The iProcess Engine will allow only one
transaction to be processed at a time for users that are logged on multiple
times to that server, resulting in slower processing.
Summary No support for attachments.
There is currently no support for fields of type swAttachment.
Summary Cannot access default attribute values.
The TIBCO iProcess Engine does not store default values for Attributes.
Consequently, the Value property of an SWAttribute object does not have
any value when accessed from an SWNode object.
Summary Locking work items.
The SAL SDK allows long locking multiple times by the same username.
Consequently, in the iProcess Engine, it is possible to lock the same work
item from a work queue using a different login session if there are two or
more clients logged in as the same username.

Release Notes
Known Issues
Summary Text field attribute lengths stored in multiples of 24.
All attributes except for text fields are set to a length of 24 if a length is not
specified or if a length not a multiple of 24 is specified. Decimal places are
not stored.
For text fields, length is set to 24 if no length is specified. If a length is specified, the actual length will be the next multiple of 24, up to the maximum
length of 255. For example, creating a text field 25 characters long will result
in the field actually being 48 characters long.
Summary Audit filtering limitations on sub-cases.
When specifying an audit filter for a sub-case, or a parent case that contains a
sub-case, the following limitation applies: If your filter criteria does not
match the sub-case started audit entry in the parent case, no audit entries are
returned for the sub-case, regardless of whether the filter criteria matches
audit entries of the sub-case.
The work around for this is to specify the following in your AuditFilterExpr
filter expression:
FILTER_FLAGS=[AF_ALL_SUBSTART]
Summary Single numeric values in range filters must have correct decimals
If you specify single values in a range filter expression, and the field that you
are filtering on is defined as a numeric field with decimal positions, the decimal positions must be included with the single values in the expression and
the single values must be shown in the form of a range.
For example, assume SW_QPARAM2 is defined as a numeric field with two decimal positions. The following example shows the proper way to specify a filter expression that includes single values:
SW_QPARAM2=[1-3|5.00-5.00|8-9|18-22|25.00-25.00]
(The single values in the example above are 5.00-5.00 and 25.00-25.00.)
When you specify a range of values (such as 1–3), you do not need to include
the decimal positions. In other words, you don’t need to specify "1.00 – 3.00".

Preface
TIBCO iProcess Objects Director is a standalone program that maintains a list of
TIBCO iProcess Objects Servers configured in a node cluster. When a client needs
access to a TIBCO iProcess Objects Server, it first establishes a connection to the
TIBCO iProcess Objects Director. TIBCO iProcess Objects Director then decides
which TIBCO iProcess Objects Server the client should connect to using the "pick
method".

Typographical Conventions
The following typographical conventions are used in this manual.
Table 1 General Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
code font
Code font identifies commands, code examples, filenames, pathnames, and
output displayed in a command window. For example:
Use MyCommand to start the foo process.
bold code
font
Bold code font is used in the following ways:
•
In procedures, to indicate what a user types. For example: Type admin.
•
In large code samples, to indicate the parts of the sample that are of
particular interest.
•
In command syntax, to indicate the default parameter for a command. For
example, if no parameter is specified, MyCommand is enabled:
MyCommand [enable | disable]
italic font
Key
combinations
Italic font is used in the following ways:
•
To indicate a document title. For example: See TIBCO ActiveMatrix
BusinessWorks Concepts.
•
To introduce new terms For example: A portal page may contain several
portlets. Portlets are mini-applications that run in a portal.
•
To indicate a variable in a command or code syntax that you must replace.
For example: MyCommand PathName
Key name separated by a plus sign indicate keys pressed simultaneously. For
example: Ctrl+C.
Key names separated by a comma and space indicate keys pressed one after the
other. For example: Esc, Ctrl+Q.
The note icon indicates information that is of special interest or importance, for
example, an additional action required only in certain circumstances.
The tip icon indicates an idea that could be useful, for example, a way to apply
the information provided in the current section to achieve a specific result.

Table 1 General Typographical Conventions (Cont’d)
Convention
Use
The warning icon indicates the potential for a damaging situation, for example,
data loss or corruption if certain steps are taken or not taken.
Table 2 Syntax Typographical Conventions
Convention
Use
[ ]
An optional item in a command or code syntax.
For example:
MyCommand [optional_parameter] required_parameter
|
A logical OR that separates multiple items of which only one may be chosen.
For example, you can select only one of the following parameters:
MyCommand para1 | param2 | param3
{ }
A logical group of items in a command. Other syntax notations may appear
within each logical group.
For example, the following command requires two parameters, which can be
either the pair param1 and param2, or the pair param3 and param4.
MyCommand {param1 param2} | {param3 param4}
In the next example, the command requires two parameters. The first parameter
can be either param1 or param2 and the second can be either param3 or param4:
MyCommand {param1 | param2} {param3 | param4}
In the next example, the command can accept either two or three parameters.
The first parameter must be param1. You can optionally include param2 as the
second parameter. And the last parameter is either param3 or param4.
MyCommand param1 [param2] {param3 | param4}

Release Notes
New Features
This section lists features added since the last major (11.0.0) release of this
product.
Earlier Versions
For details of the changes implemented in earlier versions of the product, please
see the Readme and Release Notes for that particular product release.
Release 11.3.0
Log Files Directory Is Configurable (IPE-2733)
You can specify the log files directory by adding it in line 19 of the staffpms file
located in the SWDIR\etc directory.
Ensure that the log files directory you specify is available, and has the same
permissions to access it as the original log files directory.
Release 11.1.3
Added the STICKY_SAL Attribute (JIRA IPE-2382)
In this release, TIBCO iProcess Objects Director can allocate a user to the TIBCO
iProcess Objects Server that has opened a SAL session for this user. To enable or
disable this function, a new attribute STICKY_SAL has been added to TIBCO
iProcess Objects Director. When the value of STICKY_SAL is set to 1, the function is
enabled; when the value is set to 0, the function is disabled.
When upgrading TIBCO iProcess Objects Director from an earlier version to
version 11.1.3, you will not be able to see the new attribute unless you activate it
by running the following command under the $SWDIR/util/ directory:
swadm set_attribute 1 DIRECTOR 0 STICKY_SAL 1

Summary
30205
Summary Server List May Be Incorrect With Multi-Homed Systems
On a multi-homed server, the engine may list the the name of the server as a
different name than the name returned by the iProcess Objects Server itself.
The Director treats this as a different iProcess Objects Server and will add it
to the DirectorNodeInfos list a second time and possibly a third time. If this
occurs, the following error message is written to the log:
"check_for_spo_server(), failed to find SPO_SERVER". This may result in
clients not being assigned evenly between the various iProcess Objects
Servers.
This is thought to occur when the system name where the iProcess Objects
Server was installed is different than the machine name that the iProcess
Engine associates with that instance of the iProcess Objects Server. This
machine ID can be displayed with the command "swadm show_processes".
The machine name associated with each machine ID can be found with the
command "swadm show_servers". This will occur when the iProcess Engine
is installed to a physical machine within an MS-Cluster environment, but is
actually running in the virtual machine (The Network Name machine)
within the MS-Cluster environment.

Known Issues
The table in this section lists known issues in this release. Known issues are
problems that are not scheduled to be resolved in a later release.
Known Issues
Summary Large Number of User Logins May Cause Problems
If your client application performs a large number of user logins to the
iProcess Engine, it may experience problems that are a result of running out
of TCP ports, or attempting to connect to a TCP port above 5000. You may
see one of the following problems in the client application or the iProcess
Engine:
•
the system hanging or exhibiting unexpected behavior
•
unable to create new connections to the server
•
Event ID 2009 “Number of sessions exceeds 2048” may be written to the
event log
•
the local computer responds with a WSENOBUFS (10055) error
