What is the "Destroy lock of others" used for?

Hello:

I have a question about Locking.

In the Process Configuration tab --> Team Configuration -->
Permissions --> Show All Actions an Roles

> Source Control
>Save Stream
> Modify
> Stream
> Locking
> Destroy locks of others
> Acquire, Release or Transfer locks

Where does that get used? I didn't think we could lock streams? Is this talking about locking files? Or is it totally broken? If so, what is the bug number?

I understand that currently only JazzAdmin can unlock files. If there is an RFE, I would like to know that number also, so that I can subscribe.

Thanks!

A lock is always "on a giving file in a given stream".
So a given file can be locked in one stream, but not in another stream.

Note: there currently is no "lock this file in all streams" operation,
but there is a work item requesting the ability to do so ... in that
case, the permission would be on the component that owns the file.

Cheers,
Geoff
