As an admin, can I override page level restrictions?

I am in the process of migrating a space from one Confluence instance to another. Some pages in the space have page-level restrictions that were set by someone who has since left the team. I do not have view or edit permissions to these pages, and neither does anyone else who remains on the team.

Can I, as an admin, override these page-level restrictions? How do I do that?

Yes you can override page level restrictions as an admin.

Space Admin and System Administrator access to restricted pages 
Users with 'Admin' permissions in a space, or users with the System Administrator global permission can remove restrictions from pages, even if the page restriction prevents them from viewing the page. Go to  Space Administration  >  Restricted Pages.

Link with more instructions - here.

Good luck.
