When saving tests in UFT (where our tests and resources are stored in ALM) we sometimes get the following error.
"Failed to Post Simple Key Entity"
Does anyone know why this message occurs? how to fix it?
I'm connected to ALM when saving.
Running UFT 11.52 and ALM 11.50

What patch level of ALM do you have?
What patch level of UFT do you have?
Is always during save or running the scrip also?
It happens on many machines or one specific machine?
The project use versioning control?
Did you identify if the error occurs on specifc tests?
