Why am I receiving the following error when trying to publish a workflow?  "Server was unable to process request. ---> The file http://servername/Workflows/NintexWorkflow/foldername/filename.xoml is checked out or locked for editing by domain\username."

Product:

All Workflow for SharePoint on-premises

Answer/Solution:

The file has somehow been locked.  Open your site in SharePoint Designer then drill down to the folder/.xoml file path shown in the error.  Right-click on the .xoml file(s) and discard checkout.
