Work-Cover-.WorkUnlock activity fails to unlock work object



When attempting to call Work-Cover-.WorkUnlock on a work object open on the same node but in a different session an error is seen on screen.

Error Messages

Cannot obtain a lock on instance Class Identifier, as Requestor Identifier already has the lock

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Obtain a lock on a work object from one requestor.
  2. Try to obtain lock by executing WorkUnlock activity from a different operator's requestor.

Root Cause

WorkUnlock activity will not immediately release a lock when said lock is held by a different requestor. It is released after the next pulse interval.


This is expected behavior.
