When 2 powerJobs jobs are queued and they both use Connect-ERP with -OnConnect with the last server response example on the coolOrange wiki the following warning and error is logged in the logfile

There are different solutions to this issue to prevent this issue from happening.

Solution 1

Use a Disconnect-ERP at the end of your job.

Solution 2

Put the $connect scriptblock into a module and make the variable global to be able to use that in both jobs:

$global:connect = {
    $settings.AfterResponse = [System.Delegate]::Combine([Action[System.Net.Http.HttpResponseMessage]] {
    }, $settings.AfterResponse)

Using the variable in Connect-ERP

Connect-ERP -Service "http://hostname:8080/PGS/CATALOGSERVICE" -OnConnect $global:connect
