DAM asset share

Avatar

Level 10

I need help in understanding the asset share and editor pages as mentioned here in this link https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/content/assets/assets-finder-editor.html. We have requirements that the users of the central application can also upload/edit/remove assets along with viewing and searching them but does that mean that this asset share should only be accessible on DAM author box and not on publish boxes?  The asset share has OOTB components like upload new assets and update metadata, how it is conceived to be used ?

Yes, any authoring content including assets is better to be done on author instance. You create asset share pages so that external users doesnt have access directly to your damadmin ! Article that you mentioned have a pretty good coverage of asset finder. You can also refer below articles
