git-lfs-unlock - Man Page

Remove "locked" setting for a file on the Git LFS server


git lfs unlock [<options>] <path>


Removes the given file path as "locked" on the Git LFS server. Files must exist and have a clean git status before they can be unlocked. The --force flag will skip these checks.


-r <name>, --remote=<name>

Specify the Git LFS server to use. Ignored if the lfs.url config key is set.

-f,  --force

Tells the server to remove the lock, even if it’s owned by another user.

-i <id>, --id=<id>

Specifies a lock by its ID instead of path.


Writes lock info as JSON to STDOUT if the command exits successfully. Intended for interoperation with external tools. If the command returns with a non-zero exit code, plain text messages will be sent to STDERR.
