Most of the tasks submitted in the Privileged Identity Manager management console is failing. Example: create policy, assign policy, etc.


The tibco queues ac_server_to_server_local and queue/audit had over a combined 2 Million events.

The queue/audit was backed up due to UAR.


PIM Enterprise Management 12.8 and above


We checked and purged the Tibco queues and tasks started to complete in Enterprise Manager. The queue ac_server_to_server_local was backed up and we provided fix B51S013 (bridges.conf) to stop the buildup.

ac_server_to_server_local queue backup: Fix # B51S013

This fix doesn't replace files just provides instructions on how to fix the issue.

3) Open bridges.conf in simple editor, at the last line of file, you will find below text


4) Append the below text. Please note space before keyword 'selector'.

After making changes , it should appear as below queue=ac_server_to_server_local selector="AC_SOURCE_COMPONENT='DMS' AND AC_DESTINATION_COMPONENT='DH'"
