Locking Projects in Your Local Repository

When you are prototyping ideas or are making changes to object definitions that you plan to discard, it is good practice to lock the project locally rather than checking it out from the server. This way the project remains unlocked on the server, allowing other developers to check out the project from the server, while still allowing you to modify and test changes in your local repository.

To lock a project locally

  • In the Tools Object List Editor select the project or other object type to modify, then choose Tools > Lock Project.

    Tools locks the project in your local repository so you can make changes. It does not lock the project on the server database. You cannot check your changes back to the server, so be aware that any changes you make are not saved.

NOTE:  Do not lock a project locally on the server repository.
