Modifying locked objects
This section explains the steps for modifying locked objects.
To modify a locked object
- Have the following items ready so that you can use Import in Place to replace the locked object:
- An unlocked copy of the object
- A lock key to recreate the locked object
- Modify the unlocked object and export it with the same lock key used for the locked object.
This newly locked object can overwrite an existing locked object on a server when you use Import in Place. For information about importing definitions in place, see Importing locked objects.
All objects locked with the same key on a server become one block of locked objects on that server. You cannot remove an object from a lock block without deleting the entire lock block. You can overwrite any locked object, but you cannot individual objects.
