IssueIn RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle the following WARN level log message is seen in the /home/oracle/wildfly-10.1.0.Final/standalone/log/aveksaServer.log file:
 

09/11/2018 14:20:25.275 WARN  (default task-94) [com.aveksa.afx.server.service.handler.AFXPrimaryRequestHandler] Error handling AFX primary request
java.lang.NullPointerException

at com.aveksa.afx.server.service.handler.AFXPrimaryRequestHandler.processFulfillmentRequests(AFXPrimaryRequestHandler.java:330)
CauseThis issue may occur when migrating from RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.0.1 and earlier to a later version.

The issue occurs if there were any failed Access Fulfillment Express (AFX) requests in the system prior to migration. RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.0.2 and later will attempt to retry AFX requests that have failed. The AFX requests are stored internally as XML objects and due to a change in format of the XML headers between versions, AFX requests that were generated on a previous version cannot be read. This causes a failure when AFX attempts to resend those requests.

Normally this WARN level log message may be ignored.  
ResolutionThis issue is resolved in the following patches. The system will update the XML headers of old requests during migration to prevent this error.
  • RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.0.2 P14
  • RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.1.0 P08
  • RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.1.1 P02
NotesNormally this WARN level log message may be ignored.  In some instances if the customer has a very large number of failed AFX requests from before the migration customers may experience performance issues in AFX due to the handling of the failed requests.
