Lock a state attribute

You can lock state attributes, individual states, and role associations from the Administration tab.

There is no explicit locking mechanism for state models because it is not possible for projects to modify globally-defined state model. You must create a project-specific state model within the project.

To lock one or more states

  1. Click the Administration tab, click Project Tracker > Artifact types, and click the link for an artifact that has the state attribute.
  2. Click the link for the attribute group that contains the state attribute.
  3. Click the link for the state attribute.
  4. In the Artifact Type Attribute Editor page, be sure the States sub-tab is selected.
  5. Click the checkbox next to the state that you want to lock.
  6. Click Save.

To lock a role associated with a state model

  1. Click the Administration tab, click Project Tracker > Artifact types, and click the link for an artifact that has the state attribute.
  2. Click the link for the attribute group that contains the state attribute.
  3. Click the link for the state attribute.
  4. In the Artifact Type Attribute Editor page, be sure the State Transitions sub-tab is selected.
  5. Click the checkbox next to the role that you want to lock.
  6. Click Save.
