Issue/Introduction

According to documentation (see e.g. here), you can define user-name, department etc. in the URL so the values are pre-filled.

E.g.: http://192.168.111.47:8080/awi/#&language=de&system=WS122&client=22&name=JAC&department=SBB01

Using such URLs, some features do not work as expected.

An example: Open the AWI with the simple URL like http://192.168.111.47:8080/awi/. Create a workflow (JOBP) and a notification object (CALL). Add the CALL to the JOBP, see:
 

<Please see attached file for image>

User-added image
 
Execute the JOBP, the notification is opened:
 

<Please see attached file for image>

User-added image

Click on Parent MonitorThe JOBP’s monitor is opened:
 

<Please see attached file for image>

User-added image

This is the correct and expected behavior.

Now call AWI with an URL like http://192.168.111.47:8080/awi//#&language=de&system=WS122&client=22&name=JAC&department=SBB01 (adapt it to your needs).

Execute the JOBP again, click on Parent Monitor. Now an error is displayed with a stack trace:
