Locking View Contexts

Before editing a view context, you should lock the view context. Locking prevents the view context from being edited by other users in parallel. The view context lock can be released manually. It is released automatically after the configured lock interval has expired. For details about how to configure the lock interval, see Defining Content Lock Period.

Tip: Upon editing the view context, it is automatically locked for you if it has not been locked already by another user.

To lock a view context in the view context detail view:

  1. Select the management context from the context selection box, then select Content | View Contexts.
    This opens the View Contexts list view.
  2. Click the name or ID of the view context you intend to edit.
    This opens the Details tab of the detail view.
  3. Click the icon at the dialog top.
    An error message appears if the view context is currently edited by another user.
Note: Click the icon to release the lock when you are done.
