Archive Purge job not releasing locks



Purge or Archive process does not release the locks from the pr_sys_locks table.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Run the Purge or Archive wizard from Designer Studio multiple times.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
The archive purge functionality did not release the locks after deleting the items. The open call used locks the instance which are later deleted during execution. This open call also accepts a parameter to unlock on commit, which is set to false. Setting this to true releases the lock on the commit of the deferred delete actions queued.


Apply HFix-48977.
