Secure printing is intended for situations where nobody but the originator can see the printed document; hence the originator must be at the printer to enter the passcode, and pick up the prints. If anyone else, even admin, was able to release secure jobs, that would defeat the purpose of printing securely in the first place.

Most printers are left with the default admin password, and these are freely available from the manual or online. Hence letting the admin print is not a good idea.

Deleting them is not a problem, as that way nobody gets to see the print.
Have you tried the defaults?

Thank you,
The admin user seems to only have the rights to delete jobs.  I was not able to release as needed.

I have since deleted the jobs and asked another to resubmit but I would still like to know if / how this can be done.

I would like to know how to release a job sent to a Xerox 5655 workcenter printer with a secure passcode for an operator that has forgotten their passcode.
I would like to either release from the Control Panel on the workcenter, or thru the Web admin panel.

Thank you!
It only can be erased by the admin.
