How to: Lock a Version (Master Data Services)

In Master Data Services, lock a version of a model to prevent changes to the model's members and their attributes.


When a version is locked, model administrators can continue to add, edit, and remove members. Other users with permission to the model can view members only.

To perform this procedure:

  • You must have permission to access the Version Management functional area.

  • You must be a model administrator. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services).

  • The version's status must be Open.

To lock a version

  1. In Master Data Manager, click Version Management.

  2. On the Manage Versions page, select the row for the version that you want to lock.

  3. Click Lock selected version.

  4. In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
