Runtime Operation Error in BPM – ORABPEL-30017 – Invalid task definition


When you encounter this issue of getting a ‘Runtime Operation Exception’ while logging into BPM Workspace, or find a similar log


Invalid task definition.
The task definition at default/PrjTaskReminderNotification!1.0*soa_5cb0ae06-9485-488f-91b1-1b2872276fb9/Initiator could not be read. The task definition is associated with workflow default/PrjTaskReminderNotification!1.0*soa_5cb0ae06-9485-488f-91b1-1b2872276fb9/Initiator.
Make sure that the task definition is available at the specified URL and that it is a valid XML document.

Here’s the solution.
This happens when there are more than one active record in BPM_CUBE_PROCESS table.
You just have to make sure that there is only one active record per process.

Execute the following query by connecting to the SOA_INFRA schema of the database

select processId, processName, compositeName, revision, status, from BPM_CUBE_PROCESS;

If it returns multiple records for the same ProcessName, make the status of all those entries to -1,commit and redeploy the process.
Now, you can see the process in the workspace without any problem
