Locking objects in the configuration repository
While an object is locked by a repository user, the user has exclusive rights for editing the object.
Other users cannot change this object (it becomes read-only).
To lock objects, select them and run the Actions - Lock in Repository command.
To lock the objects together with their subordinate objects, select the Retrieve recursively check box.
To retrieve objects that you locked earlier, select the Allow retrieving locked objects check box.
Locked objects are marked with an icon in the configuration tree.
