We are in the testing phase of our recent upgrade to 7.0. Now, as you know in old 3.x, we had the ability to change/maintain infopackages in production while all other objects were locked and could not be maintained. So dtp should also have similar functionality (ie, maintain in prod.). But we are having issues with this. We can create/delete a dtp but not activate it. We applied some notes regarding dtp authorization but did not help. If we give authority to activate a dtp (s_developer) then it also unlocks other objects, which we don't want.
So is there a way to achieve the following: Be able to activate dtps while other objects remain locked (in a production environment).
