Lock and unlock files in streams

If you are working with Dimensions CM streams, you can lock files to prevent other users from delivering changes while you are working with the files. This is particularly useful for file types that cannot be easily merged, such as binary graphics files.

To lock files:

  1. In Eclipse, right-click the files, and select Team > Lock.

    The Lock dialog box opens with the list of files to lock. You can optionally clear files to lock from here.

  2. Click Finish.

    The locked files appear with a padlock icon. Note that any files with brown padlock icons are currently locked by other users.

To unlock files:

  1. In Eclipse, right-click the files, and select Team > Unlock. The Unlock dialog box opens with the list of files to unlock. You can optionally clear files to unlock from here.

  2. Click Finish.
