  3. Click on Continue.
  4. Click on Activate.
  5. Error occurs.


The implementation project from Business configuration work center is currently locked by a business user.


In order to deploy business configuration successfully from SDK or to deploy the solution into the tenant, you should ensure that the implementation project is not locked by any user.

Check with the user XYZ which you get from the error message and ask him to come out of the implementation project. After that, you can try deploying business configuration again from SDK or continue with the add-on deployment.
