Resolve "Failed to acquire lock for" Error
Copy the following command to the browser URL field, replace the values in"< >" and hit Enter:http://<host>:<port>/<contextpath>/rest/scroll-versions/1.0/support/release-publishing-lock/<space_key>
For example: http://localhost:1990/confluence/rest/scroll-versions/1.0/support/release-publishing-lock/PLOCK
To unlock all spaces use this URL instead: http://<host>:<port>/<contextpath>/rest/scroll-versions/latest/support/locks/locked/unlock
Why does this happen?
We lock a space when there is an action from the app that is still in progress, for example publishing a version, deleting versions or when the app upgrades. When any of such actions are interrupted by Confluence shutdown or crash, the lock has to be removed manually.
