If you are deploying the jbpm-console.war on a JBoss 4.2.x instance, please make sure that the jbpm-console/WEB-INF/lib folder only includes the libs listed at the bottom of the wiki:
I've just verified that this works properly and have also linked the missing libraries on the wiki to the download location in the jboss repository.
vtysh and mputs, thank you for your replies. I reviewed my changes to the console war supplied with the Jbpm 3.2.2. Suite and found a configuration parameter that I had not seen before: in web-inf\jbpm4jsf-cfg.xml, <use-jsf-actor>true</use-jsf-actor> is the default.
<!-- This entry controls whether to map JSF user authentication to
actor IDs. Set to false if the authentication scheme used by
the administration console is not related to the set of actors
that is used by your processes.
Since I am using an authentication scheme for the console that is unrelated to my application's actors, this setting should be "false" for me. After changing it to "false" the console works perfectly.
I exactly have the same problem (get Nullpointer exception when I click on process list but can login). I tried what you did, but it didn't solve the problem. For the logins, I use users.properties and roles.properties. I have jbpm 3.2.3 , JBoss 4.2.1.
Do you have a step by step procedure to resolve this issue?
