De-Locking of locked Objects


with EP6 SP2, if I for instance create a System, a UserMapping for this System, an iView using all these together and if than I want to change the System properties - the portal says this object is write protected - the object is locked by user dbeutner (wow, this is me myself!).

Do I have any chance to delock this object manually?

It even stays locked if I log off and log on again 😔

Is there any sense to write-protect the object against changes by the owner of the lock himself?

Questions over questions... Any answer?

Thanks in advance

    Found it by myself:

    System administration -> Monitoring -> Portal -> Locked Objects ...

    The question stays, why I am not able to work on objects where I got the lock (it's like an adventure game where I found some key for some door, now I'm trying to pass, and the game states: "Sorry, you cannot pass this door, you need the key, but dbeutner owns it at the moment.").

    And the second questions also stays, why the object is not unlocked if the user owning the lock logs off.

    Should be solved more nice, I think?!

    Stay tuned,

      Hi all,

      even if you are not a System Admin it is possible to unlock your own objects by yourself. In the "Content provided by SAP" there is an iView called "Object Locking for User" (pcd:portal_content/ where each user can see and administrate his/her own locks. Simply add this iView to the user role.
