Only one of the legs of he bull put vertical spread gets exercised on expiration

Hi, I am facing this isuue that out of teh two legs of the vertical spready bull put option, only one of them is exercised om the expiration date. And after this date no trade happens. This seems like a bug to me. Please guide on how to fix the issue or have a workaround.

I have tried to liquidate all assets, and that one doesn't work either. In the example below only 170818P00237000 (buy put) is exercised on expiration, and not the sell put.

I noticed this meesage in the console for the leg in above post that cannot be traded:

 

Backtest Handled Error: The security with symbol 'SPY 170818P00243000' is marked as non-tradable.

will be great to find the source of the issue, and a possible solution to it. Thanks!

I already tried one solution in another discussion changed universe setting from Resolution.Hour to Resolution.Minute but it didn't help.

After fnishing the backtets i can see the Invalid status: Automatic option assignment on expiration

Since this is a spread trade, i thought exrcising the other leg will be enough at assignment. Is there a specific way t handle option assignment in QuantConnect. Thanks
