The environment administrator has a dedicated section in which he can manage the objects that are currently locked by users. The Edit Lock prevents other users to edit content as someone is already editing it. The “Locked Objects” section is a table that lists all the objects that are being edited.
The table includes, from left to right: a checkbox, the name of the object, its type, its parent, the name of the person editing and the moment it started being edited:
This list is also the tool that allows the environment admin to unlock an object. This functionality gives liberty to the admin to give back access to other users to an object that was initially locked. To do so, the following steps can be followed.
- Refresh the list, to be sure that the content displayed contains the latest objects being edited.
- Select the checkbox of the object you want to unlock.
- Click on the “Unlock” button.
