You receive an error message when trying to confirm the Put-Away task XXX saying that it is being locked by user ABC. However, the user ABC is confirming Put-Away task YYY.
XXX = Task ID.
YYY = Task ID.
ABC = User ID.
SAP Business ByDesign.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Inbound Logistics work center.
- Select the Task Control view.
- Search for the task XXX.
- Select the task XXX.
- Choose Confirm.
You receive the error message:
Object currently locked by ABC; try again later
However, user ABC is confirming task YYY.
Put-away tasks XXX and YYY are for the same warehouse request. When processing a task, the user will acquire lock on the warehouse request instance to update it upon saving the task. The task XXX cannot acquire a lock on the same warehouse request instance in parallel, hence the locking error.
This is the standard design in warehousing to avoid inconsistencies.
