Error description

  • A Folder or project remains locked after opening linked object
    under the different folder/project in DWA.
    Same behaviour can be observed in DOORS client, however, the
    lock will be released when the DOORS client is closed.
    Logging out from DWA does not release the lock and admin need to
    manually delete the lock.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create module A and module B in different folders/projects
    2. Create a link between an object in module A and an object in
    module B.
    3. Login to DWA and change to editing mode.
    4. Open module A and traverse a link to the object in module B.
    5. Close both modules.
    6.. Open module B and open a link to the object in module A.
    7. Check locks in the DOORS client.
    8. You will see a folder or a project is locked.
    9. Logoff from DWA.
    10. Check the locks again.
    11. Lock has not been removed.
    
    Do the same operation in DOORS client. You will see a folder or
    a project is locked.
    However it will disappear as soon as you close the client.
