Portal assets

When you create portal pages, all the assets available in the Sitecore Digital Asset Management™ (DAM) system are available. Assets specifically created for the portal pages are called portal assets. For example, if a user requires a background for a tile, this is a portal asset. You manage portal assets in the portal manager. Portal assets have a specific set of portal renditions.

To work with portal assets:

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage .

  2. On the Manage page, click Portal assets.

    All existing portal assets are displayed on the Portal assets page.

  3. To select the portal assets you want, click the checkbox in the upper-left corner of the thumbnail, or click the Select all checkbox.

    After you select portal assets, the operations toolbar displays.
