An artifact can have different statuses that provide further context on the artifact.
An artifact's status is displayed at the top of the main content area, beside the artifact name. The following are all possible statuses, their icons, and descriptions.
When an artifact is locked, someone is in the process of editing it, and it cannot be modified by other users. The lock is released after the changes are published or discarded. Only users with steal lock privileges can steal the lock discard any unpublished changes and edit the artifact.
