Unlocking Informatica Mapping/Folders

Unlocking Informatica Mapping/Folders



If you connect to a folder in Informatica and get a message that some user has write intent lock on certain mapping and you cant edit it, then you need to either ask the user to disconnect from that folder so that the lock is release or ask the administrator to unlock the mapping for you. 


Step1: The administrator can unlock it by going to the admin console and selecting the repository to which the folder belongs.

Step2: On the right hand side you will see the connection and locks tab. Click on it and select the user who has locked your folder. On the top right hand corner you will see a button shown in in screenshot below that should allow you to disconnect that user connection. Click it and the object is unlocked.
