Is there a way to have all the files locked by default and unlocked when required?

Hi,

By default, all the files are unlocked on a stream and locked when needed. Is there a way to have all the files locked by default and unlock (by the locked user or the project admin for example) as and when required? The work around is that I can go to each file and lock it - this is a manual process and looking for an easy way!

Thanks!

This is an old question, but I believe the "Pessimistic Locking" feature delivered in RTC 5.0.2 would solve these requests.

For more information please see:

If you want to protect every file in the stream, you might want to use
process instead of locking. In particular, define a role, only allow
that role to deliver to the stream.

Cheers,
