Binary of flow rule not being checked in when flow rule is checked in Pega 7.1
We have an enviroment with Pega 7.1.7 and we have had two ocurrences that when people check in the flow rule the binary file of the corresponding flow rule is not being checked in and the flow gets locked.
The solution is to delete the checked out flow rule (Since it doesn't even show an option to check in the binary file).
I remeber this wasn't the behaviour of past PRPC versions, does anyone know is this is a new behaviour or if there's an article regarding this?

Using Pega 7.1.8 for the Deutsche Telekom POC and we ran into this multiple times. Particularly during low-bandwidth situations when we were working onsite or at a hotel. The only solution we had was to "save as" then remove the rule, then "save as" another copy of the original name in order to be able to check in and out without issue.
What is most frustrating is that you click on the checkin button and it does the loading graphic for a second without throwing any errors.
Go to the Ruleset version where the flow rule is present. Now in the ruleset version open the "Checked out records" and then Open the Binary File. Now in the action simply click Release Lock. It will work.
The Flow can now be checked in and out without any issues.
