Are you an Administrator looking to set up asset relations? Read our create and manage asset relations article.
What are asset relations?
Create relationships between assets dynamically and configure them on a per-project basis. Asset relations work alongside list rules to surface related content to users.
A possible use case would be the display of related Event assets via a row on Team or Persona detail pages. Imagine an Administrator has created a "team" relation key (referenced below) with a source asset type of "Event" and a related asset type of "Team." This recorded "team" relation is then used within a list rule on the Team detail page to display all Events linked to that Team or Persona.
Combine asset relations with list rules to filter how related assets display within rows; examples include defining the order of assets and sorting on the asset status, e.g., live or upcoming.
To add a related asset:
- Select the tab (asset relation display name) you require. The icon(s) to the right of the Add an asset field indicates which asset types can be added (defined by an Administrator). In the example above, the "Clips" tab only allows "Program" assets to be added here.
- Enter a search term to view matching assets of the relevant type.
- Select the appropriate asset and click the button.
- To complete the process, navigate to the related asset that you've just added, and save and update that as well.
- The related assets can now be used in a list rule.
Important: The assets on both sides of the relationship must be saved before the asset relation takes effect. To complete setup, don't forget to go into the other asset and save that as well.
To remove a related asset:
- Select the required relation tab.
- Hover over a related asset and select the icon. The asset relation is removed.
- Select the button to save changes.
Important: To complete the removal process, and to avoid any issues for your users, you must repeat the removal process on the related asset (in this example Serena Williams), then save and update.
