Administration Guide

Locking an ADOM

In normal workspace mode, an ADOM must be locked before you can make changes to it or add devices, policy packages, or objects.

When an ADOM is locked, other administrators are unable to make changes to devices, policies, and objects in that ADOM until you either unlock the ADOM, or log out of the FortiManager.

Policy packages and devices can also be locked individually. See Locking a device and Locking a policy package.

To lock the ADOM you are in:
  1. Ensure you are in the ADOM that will be locked.
  2. Click Lock in the banner, next to the ADOM name.

    The padlock icon changes to a locked state, and the ADOM is locked.

To lock an ADOM from System Settings:
  1. Go to System Settings > All ADOMs.
  2. Right-click on the ADOM and select Lock, or select the ADOM then click Lock in the toolbar. You do not need to be in that ADOM to lock it.

    The padlock icon next to the ADOM's name changes to a locked state, and the ADOM is locked.

Locking an ADOM automatically removes locks on devices and policy packages that you have locked within that ADOM.

If you have unsaved changes, a confirmation dialog box will give you the option to save or discard them.

If another administrator has locked devices or policy packages within the ADOM, you will be given the option of forcibly disconnecting them, thus removing the locks, before you can lock the ADOM.

To unlock the ADOM you are in:
  1. Ensure you are in the locked ADOM.
  2. Ensure that you have saved any changes by clicking Save in the toolbar.
  3. Click Unlock in the banner, next to the ADOM name. Only the administrator who locked the ADOM can unlock it. If you have not saved your changes, a confirmation dialog box will give you the option to save or discard your changes.

    The padlock icon changes to an unlocked state, and the ADOM is unlocked.

To unlock an ADOM from System Settings:
  1. Go to System Settings > All ADOMs.
  2. Right-click on the locked ADOM and select unlock, or select the ADOM then click Unlock in the toolbar. You do not need to be in that ADOM to unlock it, but you must be the administrator that locked it. If you have not saved your changes, a confirmation dialog box will give you the option to save or discard your changes.

    The padlock icon next to the ADOM's name changes to a locked state, and the ADOM is unlocked.

All elements are unlocked when you log out of the FortiManager. If you have unsaved changes, a confirmation dialog box will give you the option to save or discard your changes.
