Unlocking a locked asset

Editors belonging to a role with the Content Unlock permission can unlock a locked asset. (For information about setting this permission at the role level, see Creating a role and Editing a role.)

To unlock a locked asset:

  1. In the lock message, click Unlock. Brightspot displays a confirmation message.
