The locking issue may be due to the Add-on/ PDI solution that either on Modify or on Save, accesses the Customer data and requires locking the instances of Customers involved in the relationship. Therefore, you get some lock entries per relationship on the lock server.

For the relationship instance, the Customers involved and internal entries are required to prevent duplicates. This can lead to an overflow on the lock server and therefore, an issue.

Further, if you process/ create relationships that involve the same Customer in different sessions, locking problems can occur.


If the issue is due to the Add-on/ PDI solution, you may seek assistance from your Implementation Partner who developed the Add-on/ PDI solution. Otherwise, report an case to SAP for further analysis.
