Administration Guide

Locking a policy package

In normal workspace mode, a policy package must be locked before changes can be made to it. Other administrators will be unable to make changes to that policy package until you unlock it, log out of the FortiManager, or they forcibly disconnect you when they are locking the ADOM that the package is in.

Individual device locks will be removed if you lock the ADOM that the package is in.

To lock a policy package:
  1. Ensure you are in the correct ADOM.
  2. Go to Policy & Objects > Policy Packages.
  3. In the policy package list, right-click on the package and select Lock. A padlock icon in the locked state is shown next to the package name to indicate that it is locked.

    Other administrators are now unable to make changes to the policy package, and cannot lock the ADOM without first forcing you to disconnect.

To unlock a policy package:
  1. Ensure you are in the correct ADOM.
  2. Go to Policy & Objects > Policy Packages.
  3. Ensure that you have saved any changes by clicking Save in the toolbar.
  4. In the policy package list, right-click on the locked package and select Unlock. If you have not saved your changes, a confirmation dialog box will give you the option to save or discard your changes.

    After unlocking, the padlock icon next to the package name is removed, and the package is unlocked. The package will also be unlocked when you log out of the FortiManager.

All policy packages 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 them.
