Locks problems with STS


I am working with BPS into BI 7.0, and its STS. The user goes to the STS web page and takes a node A and changes its status to "In process" and its brother node B is "Send to approval".

The node A is locked; the message said "An exclusive lock was set in subplan AA planning session BB for the transaction data. For this reason, you can only display the data. ... In the case Botton up ( it is my case), set automatically when a subplan was send for approval or was approval, but the node is "in process" and that node has only one planning folder.

Thanks for your help.

    Hello Victoria,

    This is a weakness of STS regarding the locking concept, that it is not able to determine on which node the user is operating.

    Once there is one lock set for a specific user, this user is not allowed to open a planning layout out of STS. (beside the auth. object R_STS_SUP)

    You can debug this yourself. You can find this in function module UPS_CHECK_LOCKS_IN_HIER.
