A new specific permission that allows unlock of Plone contents

Project description

Change default Plone behavior in locking documents management: add a new (specific) permission instead of relying onto the modify permission.


Plone has a native locking protection given bt the plone.locking module but, as said in the documentation, users able to modify a document can always steal the lock.

How this works

This add-on adds a new different permission for locking: collective.filteredlocking: Can unlock objects.

Users without this permission will be not able to unlock the document until it’s released by the owner or lock expires.


Developed with the support of Regione Emilia Romagna; Regione Emilia Romagna supports the PloneGov initiative.
