Unlocking a locked object in SAP EP

When we open an object from the portal catalogue in edit mode, it is locked by current user. During the same time, if any other user try to put it in edit mode, portal does not allow him to do so. It needs to be unlocked before it can be edited. An unlocked object is shown below. Notice the warning message that is shown below the top level navigation and detailed level navigation area.

To unlock, go to system admin->monitoring->portal->object locking and you will see below screen where all locked objects will be displayed. Select the one which you want to unlock and click on the unlock button.
