Copy an Asset Type

You can quickly create a new asset type based off an existing one by copying it.

  1. Sign in as a content administrator in your browser and click Content under Administration in the left navigation menu.
  2. Select Asset Types from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select the asset type you want to copy, and then click Copy.
  4. Enter a name and optional description for your asset type, and then click Create.
  5. The asset type is created with the same configuration as the original asset type. Edit the settings, and then click Save.

You must associate the asset type with at least one repository and grant users at least the contributor role on the repository so the asset type can be used to create assets.
