We are using aem 5.6.1 in our project. We ran a workflow on a page but it went in 'Stale' state. We tried to terminate from workflow console but no luck. So we had deleted the corresponding workflow instance from etc/workflows.
We have another issue now. When we tried to run a workflow on that page, it was saying like 'The page is already subject to a workflow'. We checked the workflow console no workflow exists in any state for that page. The workflow tab in sidekick is blank.
Can anyone please help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sad to say, but this is a common problem with older versions of AEM/CQ5. A lot of these problems have been fixed with later versions.
I would recommend to upgrade to a later versions (which is anyway a good idea, as this version already ran out of general support).
I agree. No clue found from the logs related to the issue. So we thought of giving try to restart AEM. Fortunately that fixed the issue.
Thanks everyone for providing suggestions.
