The lock propagation feature allows you to configure if lock status for files on the source will transfer to the destination with the same setting; assuming the destination platform supports it.
Lock Propagation (ignore)
- Lock status for files on the source will not propagate to the destination
Lock Propagation (mirror_lock)
- Lock status for files on the souce will propagate to the destination
Lock Propagation (mirror_owner)
- Lock owners on the source will propagate to the destination
Only Box has full support for Lock Propagation (mirror_owner)
Office 365, SharePoint 2010-2016, OneDrive for Business support reads but not writes which means only when these connectors are the source and Box is the destination, is Lock Propagation (mirror_owner) fully supported.
- Office 365
- SharePoint 2010-2016
- OneDrive for Business
Create a connector for Box and Office 365
Create a new job with the specified lock propagation setting
On the source connector (i.e. Box), create a folder with one or more files and lock them
- Right click the file on Box and select option "Lock"
- Folders cannot be locked on Box
Execute the job (i.e. Box to Office 365) and verify that the files are copied and the file is locked on the destination side
- If the setting is Ignore, no locks will propagate
- Office 365 - No green arrow on the file icon
- If the lock setting is mirror, the lock will propagate
- Office 365 - A green arrow will be present on the file icon indicating it is "checked-out" or locked
- If the lock setting is mirror_owner, the lock will propagate and the lock will be under the ownership of the account mapped from the source
"mirror_owner" option requires Account Mapping through User-Drive Mapping
