Portal assets

When creating portal pages, all the assets available in the Search function can be used. However, assets can be created explicitly for the portal pages; these are called Portal assets.

For example, if users need a background for a tile, this could be a portal asset.

As this asset will only be used in the portal manager, the portal assets have a specific set of portal renditions.

To access the portal assets, click on the Manage portal assets button at the bottom of the pages section or in the Manage menu.

On the Portal assets page, existing portal assets are shown:

Once portal assets are selected, the portal assets operation toolbar is displayed:

Here portal assets can be:

  • download selected portal assets.

  • delete selected portal assets.

  • show only selected portal assets.

  • copy selected portal assets to clipboard.

  • count of selected portal assets with clear selection option.

New portal assets can be uploaded using the upload files button:

When inserting media for the media elements, the following modal will appear:

All files

The portal asset has options under All files:

When there is more than one file in the file history, the user can perform some operations on the file that is not selected as the master file:

  • Set as master: replaces the master file.

  • Original: allows the user to download the original file.

  • Show preview: opens a pop-up window with a preview of the file.

  • Public links: opens a pop-up window where the user can add public links.

  • Use direct links: creates a direct hyperlink (note if this link is sent to someone without authorization to view the asset an error message is returned: {"Message": "Authorization has been denied for this request."}).
