Reason for not Acquiring a Resource

Hi,

does anybody have a clue what could be a reason for a token to not taking a Resource if there is all available?

In the Picture you see the resource. It has a link to a Group that has 6 members. But on any Point in my model (Client sensitive) it stops getting the sixth resource.

I tryed a lot but can´t find out what could be a reason for that?!

May a resource is not released properly. Do you have any tokens sitting in a Sink or Finish activity that normally should have been cleaned up yet? Do you acquire specific resources using queries, where it is possible that at some point the sixth resource just stops matching your query conditions?

Hi Mischa,

sorry for not saying what I already tryed out. No there are no Tokens waiting in any Sink or Finish activitys. Also I had a look into all Acquire and the Resource Activity itselfe. No Queries that could stop a token to match to the resource.

I further had a look into the Label the resource is stored in before releasing, there is no Array or anything else. And I tryed ot the "Release All" Pickoption.

Can you post the model, or make a sample model that shows the issue?

Ok, Support (Matthew Gillespie) figured out that:

Because I use Split and Join Activitys the Token that pulled the resource is destroyed in a Join Activity. This happens because I didn´t have a look in what order I connected the Join Activity. This Activity destroys all Tokens except the one arriving via Connector 1.

So switching the order of connections solved my Problem.
