Adding Content Assets to a Content Set

Content assets can only be created as child records of a content set.

This task is a step in Process of Managing Content Assets.

To add content assets to a content set

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Content Center screen > Content Sets view.
  2. In the Content Sets list, select the content set to which you want to add an asset.
  3. Click Add Content.
  4. Do either of the following actions:
    • Click the File Options button and specify a local file.
    • Type in a URL or network path.
  5. If you typed in a URL or network path, click the URL Options button and set the URL and network file options in the dialog box.

    Some fields are described in the following table.


    Follow Links

    Select to have the pages that are linked-to from the specified Web page are copied, and, in turn, links to those pages copied as well.

    Max Depth

    Indicates the level to which links are copied. For example, if Max Depth = 1, pages that are linked-to from the specified page are copied, but not pages that they link to.

    Restrict to Subdirectory

    Select so that, if links are followed, only links to pages within the same directory as the specified page are copied.

    Retrieve Graphics

    Select to have graphics on the specified Web page copied along with the text.

    Preserve Path

    When a secondary file is imported (using Follow Links or Wildcard subdirectories), this option retains the path hierarchy in the asset's name. For example, if the linked file /img/foo.jpg is imported, and this option is selected, the asset will be named img/foo.jpg, If this option is not selected, the asset will be named foo.jpg.

    URL options

    Absolute External Links

    When importing content for any external links, each path will be converted to absolute path.

    Network file options

    Get all Files under Subdirectory

    When importing content from a network path, imports all files under the current subdirectory.

    Replace Files Only if Newer

    When importing content, replaces the files in Content Center only if the file being imported is newer than the file already in Content Center.

  6. (Optional) Click Advanced to set the Advanced Options for the asset.

    Some fields are described in the following table.


    Content Asset Type

    Leave this field set to Auto-Detect (the default) to have the application determine the asset type, or select a type from the dialog box to set a specific type.

    Path Prefix

    Put the specified path prefix to any external link in the content.


    Select this to lock the content asset, so that others cannot edit it.


    Enter comments for this version of the content asset.
