  • In the help document of DOORS 9.2.0.1, section "Requirements

    edit", the last paragraph states:
    
    "You merge the returned data with the original data. If the
    third party has finished the updates, then the locks are
    removed. Locks are removed if the imported file returns the
    locks to you. If the file was an update, and the third party
    plans to send you more edits, then they might keep the locks."
    But this feature of keeping the locks is not available with the
    application. This was logged as a document defect.
