Issue:
User implemented a solution where certain dynamic properties are generated automatically by a workflow. 
Sometimes, especially in cases where workflow are executed on multiple targets simultaneously (agent groups), it happens that the same dynamic property (same namespace, same name, same value, same object it sits on) gets created almost at the same time, both get created successfully,

Environment:
  • Release.Manager 8.0.1,
  • Release.Manager 9.0.0,
  • Release.Manager 7.0.4 HF1 
Cause:
Newly created dynamic property was  saved to the database immediately. As a result, if there were multiple calls to create a dynamic property in a very short time, multiple dynamic properties with the same name and namespace could be created successfully.
Resolution:
The issue was found and fixed with
  • Release.Manager 9.0.0,
  • Release.Manager 7.0.5,
  • Release.Manager 8.0.2 
The Package is available for download at the Automic-Support-Zone (https://support.automic.com).
Hotfix-Description: Multiple Dynamic Properties with the same name and namespace exist.
