Connected Assets - How to restrict access to particular asset/folder?

Avatar

Level 3

We have an AEM asset author environment (Centralized DAM) and multiple sites author environment for different brands. We are planning to use connected assets to access the assets in our Centralized DAM on our sites environment. Is there a way I can hide/restrict particular asset to appear in search or access it on sites?

Let's say in Asset environment(Centralized DAM) we have 3 folder containing assets -Brand1, Brand 2, Brand 3 and have 3 sites enviornments -site1 ,site 2 ,site 3. Is there a way using connected assets that on site1 environment , we are only able to access assets from Brand1 folder and assets from other 2 folders are not accessible to be used for site 1?

Hi @ReddyIshanvi 

 

Use case mentioned above is achievable using User, groups and permissions. What you can do is create 3 separate groups and assign the individual users accordingly.

 

UserGroupBrand1- It would have only permission on /content/site1 and /content/dam/brand1 Dam assets.

UserGroupBrand2- It would have only permission on /content/site2 and /content/dam/brand2 Dam assets.

UserGroupBrand3- It would have only permission on /content/site3 and /content/dam/brand3 Dam assets.

 

Based on user access, they would only see the content relevant to their site and DAM.

Hope this helps.
