Budget Construction Security Model (Locking)

In Budget Construction, documents are locked by the users currently working with the document. Locks are set when a user gets edit access, either during the initial open of the document or during an account pull-up/push-down operation. Locks are released for documents in edit mode when closing a document or after pushdown to a level that puts the document in view mode. The daily BC Update job releases all existing locks nightly.

Special root approver users (users at the top level organization hierarchy) have the ability to perform the unlock action. There are four types of locks in BC.
