Resuming paused jobs


I have a relatively large job array that I launched yesterday that was still running.
However, I have another job that required a higher priority, and as such I used scontrol hold jobid to pause those jobs, so the new jobs could go through.
Currently, though, I am unable to resume those held jobs. Is this the expected behaviour?

For posterity, if such a situation does arise, what is the recommended procedure?

Relevant jobid that was paused: 6767423_

Sometimes you find the answer immediately after you post a question in the forum.
Thanks @John.Raine for the help. I can resume the held jobs with scontrol release jobid
