SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any work center in the system.
  2. Select any view.
  3. Open any random object.
  4. Click the Edit button.
  5. Make any change.

Result: You receive the error message 'Locking object not possible; object locked by user'.

You can still proceed creating a new entry without any issue.


This is standard system behaviour.


This error occurs when more than one user is editing the same object simultaneously. Only when one user actually makes an attempt to edit the data after another user has put it in edit mode, will the system prompt the error message.
