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 Editing a role and Limiting access to locking.)

To unlock a locked asset:

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

  3. Edit the asset as necessary.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the asset.
