Lock data object - what does it do?


Hey everyone,

when I lock an object via context menu it get’s a blue color and is added to the database table of locked objects. But other than that nothing seems to change. I can still edit and save content even as non-admin user.

I was expecting to not be able to change/save/open the locked object anymore as a different user.
Am I wrong? Am I missing some settings?

Thanks in advance!

you cannot move it. thats what it does


So there’s nothing like locking an object from being edited by someone else in Pimcore?


There is something, but it doesn’t disable the pimcore UI, it just gives you a Popup that User “XY” is currently editing the object, do you wan’t to continue. If 2 people save the same object at different times, Pimcore compares the modification date from the UI with the one in the database and throws an exception if they aren’t equal.

Yes. you are right. I am wondering why delete option is removed from the tree menu not from grid menu. I cannot delete the folder from the tree. I can delete the objects from the grid by selecting it using checkboxes. This makes new pimcore user confuse.
