Adobe Experience Manager Assets provides robust asset discovery methods that help you achieve higher content velocity. Your teams reduce time to market with seamless, intelligent search experience using out-of-the-box functionality and custom methods. Searching assets is central to the usage of a digital asset management system -- be it for further use by creatives, for robust management of assets by the business users and marketers, or for administration by DAM administrators. Simple, advanced, and custom searches that you can perform via Assets user interface or other apps and surfaces help fulfill these use cases.
Experience Manager Assets supports the following use cases and this article describes the usage, concepts, configurations, limitations, and troubleshooting for these use cases.
Search for assets using the Omnisearch field at the top of the Experience Manager web interface. Go to Assets > Files in Experience Manager, click search icon in top bar, enter search keyword, and press return. Alternatively, use the keyword shortcut / (forward slash) to open the Omnisearch field. Location:Assets is pre-selected to limit the searches to DAM assets. Experience Manager provides suggestions as your start typing a search keyword.
Use the Filters panel to narrow your search by filtering search results based on the various options (predicates), such as, file type, file size, last modified date, status of asset, insights data, and Adobe Stock licensing. Your administrators can customize the Filters panel and add or remove search predicates using search facets. The File Type filter in the Filters panel has mixed-state checkboxes. Therefore, unless you select all the nested predicates (or formats) the first-level checkboxes are partially checked.
