I have a question about item security. I want to set the security on items so that the internal Administrator account can edit them even though they are in the released state. I would like to change the category of the items without having to go through a state change.
I have tried going into the vault settings, to the item security. I have added the administrator account with full permissions and have removed all other accounts and groups. That still gives me an error that I can't edit an item in the released state. I cannot remove all entries in the item ACL. It gives me an error that I don't have adequate permissions to do this. Is there a way to edit released items without changing the states back to WIP?

Thanks Allan, I appreciate the confirmation.
No, the item security setting you are referring to actually relates to the linked files. You can never edit a released item and this is as designed.
In order to edit a released Item it needs to go to WIP - this can be achieved by turning off the revision bump rule in the Item rules but we did recently introduce a "quick change" type functionality in the change revision dialog which allows you to skip revision bump on state change.
Hope this helps.
