Resource locks are labels that you can apply to elements of your Tealium iQ profile to prevent unauthorized users from making changes to those elements. These elements can include data layer variables, load rules, tags, and extensions.
This article covers the following topics:
When an element has a resource lock applied to it, only users added to that label may edit the element. However, that element is still available for use by others. For example, if a load rule has a resource lock applied to it, users can still apply that load rule to a tag without being a member of that load rule's resource lock.
Any user with the Manage Users permission prior to the implementation of the resource lock feature will automatically have the "Manage Resource Locks" permission as well. Going forward, if you want to grant a user account the "Manage Resource Locks" permission, a user who already has that permission must grant it through the "Manage User Permissions" wizard. For more information, see Managing User Permissions.
Since a resource lock is also a label, you have two options for creating one:
If you convert a Resource Lock back into a regular label, you will lose the list of users you assigned to it.
Your new resource lock will appear in the list of labels, and you can now apply them to elements. You'll notice that resource locks feature a lock as part of their icon. You may apply more than one resource lock to an element, but a user only needs to be assigned to a single one of the resource locks in order to edit the element.
