Managing Locked Items in Jama Connect There are two types of locks in Jama Connect: system locks  and user locks . This article will help you understand the difference between the two and best practices for managing them – and what to do if you’re unknowingly the owner of a user-locked item!  As a best practice, enabling the “locked” field as a visible field in the list view will allow you to quickly identify items that are locked and give you a nice visual indicator as to why they might be locked. Blue lock icons indicate that the item(s) are locked by the system because of a workflow transition, yellow lock icons indicate that the item(s) are locked by ...

Before you can install or upgrade to the Jama Connect 8.62 release, we recommend that you first create two new database schemas to support the new SAML and OAuth authentication options. For the upgrade to complete, organizations using Microsoft SQL Server must enter database users in Replicated. Without these entries, the installation or upgrade will fail. Organizations that do not create the new schema will successfully install/upgrade; however, the system will continue to attempt to connect to the databases and produce log failures. After you create the database schemas, you must restart Jama Connect. To create the database schemas, use the script for ...
