Get to Know the Assets Page

Your Assets view is where you manage all the digital assets and content items you need for projects. The features available on the Assets page differ depending on whether you are viewing a business repository or an asset repository. Asset repositories support publishing and translation.

To get started, click Assets in the left navigation menu.

Callout Description
1 Click the filter icon to hide or show the filter panel. Hiding the panel gives you more room for viewing assets in the content area.
2 Select the repository to use from the drop-down list next to the filter icon.
3 Search for assets using tags or keywords. If smart content is enabled on the repository, after you enter a search term, you'll see recommended keywords under the search box. Click a keyword to add it to your search.
4 Filter by collection, channel (asset repositories only), or by language (asset repositories only). If you choose a specific collection, for example, you will see only those content items and digital assets that are in that collection. If you leave these options set to All, you’ll see all the assets in the repository you chose to use. If a content item in an asset repository is translated into multiple languages, one item is considered the “master” and the other translated versions are considered secondary. When you filter for a specific language, an asset may be returned in your results that doesn’t appear to be in that language. However, there may be a secondary version in that language.
5 Filter by media group, for example, images, documents, or content items.
6 Filter by the type of asset. You see all the asset types available in the selected repository.
7 Filter by status. You can filter by the following status types: approval, publishing (asset repositories only), categorization, lock, collection, or channel target (asset repositories only).
8 By default, you see filters for filtering the assets in the repository by collection, channel (asset repositories only), language (asset repositories only), media group, asset type, and status. If a taxonomy is associated with the repository you're viewing, you also see the Categories tab, where you can filter by categories. Taxonomies provide a hierarchical, folder-like structure of categories.

Next to each category, you'll see the number of assets assigned to that category and any children of the category.

By default, when you select a category, you'll see all assets assigned to that category or any children of the selected category. If you prefer to limit your search to a specific parent category, select the category and deselect Include All Children


Taxonomies and categories are available only in Oracle Content and Experience, not Oracle Content and Experience-Classic.
9 The menu at the top of the page lists the actions you can take in the repository:
  • Add: You can add files into the repository from your computer or files that are already stored in your Documents cloud account or, if your administrator has enabled cloud storage integration, from a third-party cloud storage provider.
  • Create: You can also create a content item by clicking Create and then selecting a content type to use from the list.
  • More menu: Click More menu to see additional views of the repository: Publishing Jobs (asset repositories only), Translation Jobs (asset repositories only), Collections, Category Suggestions (if a taxonomy is associated with the repository you're viewing), Content Analytics (asset repositories only), Workflows (if workflows are registered with the asset repository you're viewing).
