Hi, We have a custom implementation for sharing projects from sandbox to repository. (called "Auto-share") However this custom auto-share implementation goes into a deadlock with
one of the IBM operation "Updating out of sync share".

To fix this deadlock issue we had to remove the below code from our custom

// Obtain the CFA lock so metadata updates will happen in-thread
AbstractLock lock = CFALockUtil.lockExistingForGlobalUpdate(entry.getKey(), progress.newChild(1));

Is the above code mandatory while sharing projects ? Do you foresee any issues?
Do we have any documentation for the same?

(Our tests indicates most the use cases to be working, but wanted an expert
opinion on the same.)

Thanks and regards
Linu Chacko

This code is internal to the SCM API and should not be called by 3rd parties. You shouldn't need to call this as the proper locking should be done through the SCM API you are calling to share projects.
