Applying tags to Asset folders

milieere

Hello,

I was wondering, if there is a way to apply tags on a FOLDER containing assets (i.e. only the folder would have the respective tags, not the assets inside it). In that way, the folder would serve as 'container' and on a search for the respective tags, only the folder would appear, not the assets inside it.

 

Is there a way to do it?

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi @milieere, you can create custom metadata schema for folder. This will givie you ability to set tags or any other additionial metadata on folder level. There could be need to update/create new search index and/or extend filters section depending on setup of your schema.

 

You can find more information about metadata schema for folder under: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/assets/administer/metadata-config.html...

Are you planning to search for the assets within AEM dam based on tags? 

I'm not sure about exact requirement but below is the way you can attach tags on folder level.

1. Go to http://localhost:450/assets.html 

eg: http://localhost:4502/assets.html/content/dam/we-retail/en 

2.  Select the folder & click on "Manage Tags":

Hope this helps.

Hi Shiva, thanks for your answer. That is not what I am looking for - you describe a way how to add tags on the individual ASSETS in the folder, not on the FOLDER. 

 

I am looking for a way to tag the FOLDER that is containing the assets, not the assets. My client wants to conduct search in the DAM based on folders, thus he is looking for a way to filter the whole folders based on tags. 

 

Do I understand correctly, that there is not a way in AEM to tag folders? I mean the folder as it is, not the files inside.

 

Thanks, Simona

In that case, why do you want to attach tags to the folder? can you use folder name to search for it?
