Set the unlock parameter

The Unlock parameter in a user’s Insight.cfg file specifies whether that user has permission to temporarily unlock locked workspaces for editing.
If the Unlock parameter is already present in the user’s Insight.cfg file, you can edit the parameter using Data Workbench. If it is not already present in the user’s Insight.cfg file, you must add it to the file using a text editor, such as Notepad.
To set an existing Unlock parameter in the Insight.cfg file
  1. In a workspace, right-click Admin > Client Configuration . The Insight.cfg file opens.
  2. For the Unlock parameter, type either true or false. True enables the user to temporarily unlock any locked workspace, while false does not.
  3. To save your configuration changes, right-click Insight.cfg (modified) at the top of the window and click Save as Insight.cfg .
To add the Unlock parameter to the Insight.cfg file
  1. Navigate to your Data Workbench installation directory and open the Insight.cfg file using a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Add the Unlock parameter to the end of the file, as in the following example:
Unlock = bool: false
  1. Set the value to either true or false. True enables the user to temporarily unlock any locked workspace, while false does not.
  2. Save and close the file.
