The global Lockpoint configuration page (at Toolgear » Confluence Admin » Arsenale Lockpoint) is used for configuring system-wide options for the add-on that apply to your entire Confluence instance.

Global Options

On this page, you can set the following options:


Default Space-Level Activation




This option sets a global default to have Lockpoint either enabled or disabled for each space in Confluence.

It applies to all spaces that have not been specifically configured to override the global setting. The global default can be changed at any time, and it will still apply to all spaces that have not been specifically configured to override the global default, regardless of when those spaces were created.

To override the global default for a specific space, navigate to the space and select Space Tools » Arsenale Lockpoint » Permissions.

When Lockpoint is enabled in a space, all of the locking functionality and Lockpoint user interface controls are made available to users of the space. If Lockpoint is disabled in a space, locking will not be activated or checked and pages in the space will behave as if Lockpoint were not installed. 

Disabling Lockpoint in a space does not delete any of the attachment locking information in that space.

If Lockpoint is accidentally disabled in a space in which files were already locked, the locks can be recovered and made visible again by simply reenabling Lockpoint in that space.

On page attachment view, show owners of attachments next to lock iconDisabled

This option controls the display of the owner's name on the attachments page.

If you wish to display the owner's name next to the lock icon, select the checkbox. If the checkbox is deselected, Lockpoint will simply display a lock icon next to the file. If users mouse over the lock icon, a pop-up dialog will appear which contains information about the locked file.

Permit unlocked attachments to be modified without requiring a lockDisabled

This option allows you to control Lockpoint's behavior when a file is not locked.

By default, Lockpoint requires that users lock a file before taking any action that would modify a file, such as uploading a new version. When this option is enabled, Lockpoint permits users to upload and reattach a file without first locking it, so long as no other user has a lock on the file.

Enable "Edit in Office" links for Microsoft Visio drawingsDisabled

This option controls whether the Edit in Office link is shown for Microsoft Visio drawings.

Although the underlying Confluence Office Connector does not officially support Visio drawings, this feature enables the Edit in Office link for Visio drawings across all spaces.

This feature has been tested to work with most Internet Explorer browsers, but it does not work with the Firefox WebDAV launcher.

If a user attempts to open another document that has been locked by another user, Visio will simply open the file as read-only (rather than displaying an error message as with other Office applications).

Enable "Edit in Office" links for Microsoft Project drawingsDisabled

This option controls whether the Edit in Office link is shown for Microsoft Project documents.

This feature has been tested to work on most Internet Explorer browsers, as well as the Firefox WebDAV launcher on Windows.

License Status

The global configuration page is also used to install Arsenale-issued Lockpoint licenses.

With the release of Lockpoint v1.6.9, all Lockpoint purchasing—including new licenses and renewals of support and maintenance—is now handled by Atlassian via Atlassian Marketplace or your My Atlassian account.

If your Lockpoint license was purchased from Atlassian, you will need to install the Atlassian-issued Lockpoint license on the Confluence Administration Manage Add-ons page instead of on Arsenale Lockpoint's Global Configuration page.

For full details on managing Arsenale-issued and Atlassian-issued Lockpoint licenses, see Licensing and Updates.
