Lock Diagram


The lockDiagram operation is performed on a schematic diagram template resource. The result of this operation is a Schematic Diagram Information Object. It is used to intentionally lock a schematic diagram to avoid users updating it or changing its layout.

Note: Schematics services published without the Editing operation enabled don't support the lockDiagram operation.

You can provide arguments to the lockDiagram operation as query parameters defined in the parameters table below.

Request Parameters

Syntax: name=<diagramName>

Example: name=DiagramFrom_pug_PUG_gas_plants_ID3



Description: The login of the user who locks the diagram.
