Lock Model Elements

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

Compared to when security is enabled, locking a model element differs slightly  when security is not enabled. If you select the Project | Security | Require User Lock to Edit menu option, when you elect to lock a diagram or element, the Element Lock dialog displays.


The four lock options available are:

·No Lock - do not lock this element; clear any existing lock
·Full lock - lock this element so that no-one can edit it
·User lock - lock this element so that only the locking user can make further edits
·Group lock - lock this element so that any member of the specified group (in the GroupID field) can update the element, but others are excluded.

Select the appropriate lock and click on the OK button.
