Unlock entities and manage unlocking jobs
This section describes how to view and unlock entities locked by any use and to manage unlocking jobs.
About the Entity Unlocker
The Entity Unlocker is a standalone application that can be used to unlock entities. Entities are locked when they are being edited, where a browser is closed without a proper logout, or where a network is down. Lockable entities include tests, scripts, monitor profiles, and analysis templates.
As a site administrator, you can:
Use the Entity Unlocker application to view and unlock entities locked by any user on a specific domain and project (a regular user can only unlock an entity that was locked by that user).
Manage the unlocking job from LoadRunner Enterprise Administration which automatically unlocks entities that have not been updated after a specified amount of time.
The Entity Unlocker application integrates securely with LoadRunner Enterprise when SSO authentication is enabled on the LoadRunner Enterprise server. For details, see SSO authentication.
