Locked Objects

In UBIK objects can be locked for multiple reasons, these different types of locking are discussed in this article.

Locking in MRO tasks

Locked by hierarchy

By design, an MRO object is locked if its parent MRO work package is confirmed. This type of locking is applied recursively to all child MRO objects.

Locked by sequence

An MRO task can also be locked if it belongs to a sequential list of tasks that must be completed in order, in this case all tasks but the ones that are currently active in the sequence are locked.

Locking through access rights

Locked by exclusive access

Objects may have exclusive access, allowing only a single user to edit it by checking it out, for all other users this objects is locked and can not be edited.

Locked by user rights

If a user does not have the necessary right to write to, or even read the contents of an object this object appears locked. This can apply to groups of objects, single objects or even properties of objects.

Unlock by code scanning

A classification that locks an object or group of objects until a certain code is scanned. After the unlock code is scanned it is remembered for 15 minutes allowing access to the locked object.

Locking for other reasons

Locked during initialization

After logging in objects are locked to prevent them from being edited before the session is fully initialized.

Locked template objects

Objects can be classified as templatable. If the objects "IsTemplate" property is set to read-only the objects properties are locked.
