Publication Administration right. Did you know?

Since SDL Web 8.5 there is a feature available that hasn't got a lot of attention. It is minor but can improve the lives of many content managers (and system admins): Publication Administration right.

When this right configured for a user it allows them to check-in any versioned item in that Publication that another user had checked out. This is particularly useful when people go on vacation and they forgot to submit their work. So no more e-mails to system admins to resolve versioning issues!

Before setting such rights, please take note of the other operations possible. From the SDL docs

  • creating, reading, updating or deleting any item in the Publication
  • publishing any item in the Publication
  • checking in any versioned item in the Publication that another user had checked out
  • undoing the check-out by another user of any versioned item in the Publication
  • reading, unlocalizing or deleting non-checked-in items
