You can check locks in:

  • The locks tab in a working copy Knowledge Base.
  • The GXserver console locks menu for a complete list of locks from all the Knowledge Bases connected to the repository.

Note

A lock is not assigned to a specific user, but to a specific user and a working copy KB. Having a lock in one working copy also prevents the same user from committing the locked object from another working copy KB.
