Lock a Version (Master Data Services)
Applies to: SQL Server (all supported versions) - Windows only Azure SQL Managed Instance
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, super users and 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 be a model administrator. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services).
The version's status must be Open.
You must have permission to access the Version Management functional area. For more information, see Functional Area Permissions (Master Data Services).
To lock a version
In Master Data Manager, click Version Management.
On the Manage Versions page, select the row for the version that you want to lock.
In the confirmation dialog box, click OK.
