Saving of an Apex class in developer console may fail with error message "UNKNOWN_EXCEPTION: admin operation already in progress"
Last updated 2017-03-03 ·Reference W-2945539 ·Reported By 28 users
When saving a class in developer console the following error message could be returned:
UNKNOWN_EXCEPTION: admin operation already in progress
The error is intermittent and occurs in developer console or any other tool which uses Salesforce Tooling API.
1. Navigate to Developer Console
2. Open an existing Apex class
3. Click "File\Save"
This issue cannot be reproduced on demand
1. This issue occurs when Tooling API is used. As a workaround Metadata API tools such as Force.com IDE can be used instead
It is possible to switch Mavens Mate tool to the metadata API instead of the tooling API:
2. Retry the operation
