On a french Clarity environment you can notice that some investments are being locked and the lock never drops.

The prlock table also shows these locks and they are never removed.


Looking to the bg-niku.log file you will see the following errors:

FATAL 2014-01-22 20:55:36,863 [Dispatch pool-4-thread-5 : bg@demunapp488.ondemand.ca.com (tenant=clarity)] union.persistence (clarity:AdminOSEO:9951871__2D2EC237-7BBB-481E-8B10-C05CB0C4BD44:Allocation d'investissement)

This issue is due to the apostrophe of the Investment alllocation job on the French translation: Allocation D'Investissement

In order to resolve the issue, please proceed as follows:

1. Go to Administration > Data Administration> Reports and Jobs

2. Filter by the Investment Allocation job definition

3. Edit the job.

4. Next to the Job Definition Name filed there is a translation icon

5. Check the French translation: Allocation d'investissement

6. Please rename it so the apostrophe is removed. This coudl be renamed as Allocation d investissement

7. Save the changes

8. Go to Home > Personal > Reports and Jobs

9. Check if the Investment Allocation job is scheduled. If it is, cancel it and reschedule it.

10. The new scheduled job will now contain the new translation name where the apostrophe is not present
