  • Copy works fine

The error is thrown when the user does not have permission to write on the original linked file. In addition, after creating the link for file, add the aspect to the original node as System user.

Please review CR-610.

Retested the issue on Alfresco Enterprise v5.2.1 (r132726-b400) and seems to be working fine now. So, closing this issue.
Please find the attached screen shot.

Reopening the issue, as the error message has to be enhanced when trying to create a link which is locked for editing.

Comment by Ramona Neamtu [ 18-Nov-16 ]

Added specific message for the case when action fails because node is locked.
Please review CFR-10225.
