22 Manage Repositories

Repositories are a way for you to manage all the assets needed for a project, department, or campaign in a group. You must be a repository administrator to create and share asset repositories.

There are two types of repositories: business repositories and asset repositories. Business asset repositories store business documents (such as invoices, contracts, engineering drawings, or reports). Digital asset repositories store assets that need to be published for use within digital experiences (websites and other channels) or translated into multiple languages.

After creating a repository, it must be shared with other people in order for it to be used.

If you want multiple sites to share the same asset repository while you still control access to site-specific content, you use a taxonomy to apply the granular security. For example, site contributors would be able to access common assets such as corporate logos and assets intended for use on sites they manage, but not have access to assets intended for other sites.

By default the Repositories page shows all repositories, sorted by name. Use the drop-down menus on the right to filter by repository type and to change the sort order. You can also use the search box to find a repository by name.
