Error "Failed to get the lock" while creating or deleting TYPE Metadata object in APACHE ATLAS

New Contributor

I am trying to create custom TYPE Metadata objects in Apache Atlas for a Reporting tool. I can create or delete, but most of the time I get the below error. I am not sure what is triggering this error.


errorCode: ATLAS-500-00-005,
errorMessage: Failed to get the lock; another type update might be in progress. Please try again


Can someone please help me with the reason why this error occurs and how to resolve this issue?

Hi @Ujwal , Does this happens when you directly hit the Atlas URL instead of Knox ?
Can you check the Atlas application.log file to see any error or warn when you trigger the curl command. Also check the knox logs for any error. Thanks.
