The Assets tab

The Dynamic Content Assets tab streamlines your content production workflow by allowing you to quickly perform some key asset management tasks without the need to switch to Content hub. Using the Assets tab you can easily access the Asset Library to perform tasks such as uploading and publishing assets.

The Dynamic Content assets tab

info

While the Assets tab incorporates features from Content Hub into Dynamic Content it shouldn't be considered as a replacement for Content Hub. Content Hub remains the primary application from which asset management tasks are performed. Only a subset of these tasks are available from the Assets tab. For example, to move, delete or look at the properties of an asset you need to use Content Hub. For more information, see the Limitations section at the end of this page.

The Assets tab enables you to do the following asset management tasks from within Dynamic Content:

Managing the Assets tab

In order to use the features of the Assets tab to upload, organize and publish assets from Dynamic Content, it must first be provisioned on your account. The Assets tab is only available if you are using Content Hub to manage your assets.

To get the Assets tab provisioned, you should contact your Customer Success Manager or send an email to csteam@amplience.com. Your account administrator should make the request because the Assets tab is enabled on a per hub basis, not per user.

Assets tab provisioning options

You will need to choose from two options when requesting the Assets tab:

Give all users on the hub the same access (API key access)

If you choose this option, then all the users will get the same access but they will only see asset stores that have been set up for the hub.

This option is the one to choose if you want your users to upload, view and publish all assets available to your hub.

Use existing Content Hub access for each user

If you choose this option, each user's access to the Assets tab features will mirror their existing Content Hub access. For example this may include restricting access to certain asset stores.

If you have multiple brands and keep assets for each brand in different asset stores, then you may want to choose this option to restrict which asset stores a user can access.

Limitations

The following limitations apply to the Assets tab:

Distinguishing between published assets and latest published assets

Once an asset has been published, the icon always shows the green cloud with a tick. If you subsequently change the image, the icon does not update to identify that the published version isn't the most recent. If you are unsure whether you are looking at the latest published version of an asset, check the published status icon in Content Hub.

Deleting sub folders

You can create subfolders, but to delete them you must use Content Hub.

When uploading large files you may experience a slight delay from when you click to start the upload and when the upload commences, displaying the upload in progress message.
