Getting "<App> is locked for editing by <User>" even though we've connected the app to Git through DevOps.

Pretty much just the title. We've connected the app using the Experimental functionality and confirmed the source code is in our DevOps repo. Yet, when we have two developers try to open the app concurrently, it throws the error for the second person.


Any ideas?

Hi @mick_swartz ,


I‘ve made a test but did not encountered the problem you mentioned.

Could please check Git version control setting to mark  sure if this app is connect to your Azure DevOps?



Could you please check these known limits?

  1. This feature isn't compatible with code components. Don't use this feature with apps that make of use of code components.
  2. This feature doesn't work with public Git repository. Use a private repo instead.
  3. This feature doesn't work with on-premises Git repositories. The Git repo must be hosted on the web and accessible with username and personal access token.
  4. Edits to the same property on the same control aren't merged. The last edit made will win.

In addition, have you set up Personal Access Tokens for other developers and given them the right permissions?


If the problem still exists, can you consider recreating a new app and testing it? (As this is still an experimental feature, there may be some unknown limitations).In addition, I suggest you create a support ticket for professional assistance following the below procedure.
