Today we’ll talk about another cool new recent feature of PLM 360 – the Override Revision Control Locks permission.
Correct and Add Missing Data to Superseded Item Revisions
You can now edit superseded versions of a revision-controlled item without having to put the item through a whole new revision. By allowing certain users to override revision control locks, this new permission gives you a quick and simple way to correct errors in a revision or add related drawings and other files that were missed the first time around.
Use some caution with this powerful new permission. To enable safe editing of latest releases and superseded revisions of revision-controlled items, first create a special permission role (for example, Override Revision Control Locks Role) and add the Override Revision Control Locks permission to the role. Then create a special user group (for example, Override Revision Control Locks Group) and associate the role with this user group. Finally, add the appropriate users to Override Revision Control Locks Group. With this setup, only users added to this special group have permission to edit latest releases and superseded revisions of revision-controlled items.
