Publish contribution folder to AEM Assets

Brand Portal users with appropriate permissions can upload multiple assets, or folders containing multiple assets, to the contribution folder. However, Brand Portal users are only able to upload assets to the NEW folder. The SHARED folder is meant for the distribution of baseline assets (reference content) which can be used by the Brand Portal users while creating new assets for contribution.

Brand Portal user having permission to access the contribution folder can perform the following activities:

Download asset requirements

Brand Portal users automatically receive email/pulse notifications whenever a contribution folder is shared by the AEM user, allowing them to download the brief (asset requirement) document, as well as download the baseline assets (reference content), from the SHARED folder to ensure they understand the asset requirements.

Brand Portal user performs the following activities to download asset requirements:

  • Download brief: Download the brief (asset requirement document) attached to the contribution folder which contains asset related information like type of assets, purpose, supported formats, maximum asset size, etc.
  • Download baseline assets: Download the baseline assets which can be used to understand the types of assets required. Brand Portal users can use these assets as reference to create new assets for contribution.

Brand Portal dashboard reflects all the existing folders permitted to the Brand Portal user along with the newly shared contribution folder. In this example, the Brand Portal user only has access to the newly created contribution folder, no other existing folder is shared with the user.

To download asset requirements:

  1. Log in to your Brand Portal instance.

  2. Select contribution folder from the Brand Portal dashboard.

  3. Click Properties. The Property window containing the contribution folder details opens.

  4. Click on the Download Brief option to download the asset requirement document on your local machine.

  5. Go back to the Brand Portal dashboard.

  6. Click to open the contribution folder, you can see two sub folders–SHARED and NEW within the contribution folder. The SHARED folder contains all the baseline assets (reference content) shared by the administrators.

  7. You can download the SHARED folder containing all the baseline assets on your local machine.
    Or, you can to open the SHARED folder and click the Download icon to download individual files/folders.

Go through the brief (asset requirement document) and refer to the baseline assets to understand the asset requirements. Now, you can create new assets for contribution and upload them to the contribution folder…

Upload assets to contribution folder

After going through the asset requirements, the Brand Portal users can create new assets for contribution and upload them to the NEW folder within the contribution folder.

NOTE

The Brand Portal users can upload assets only to the NEW folder.

The maximum upload limit for any Brand Portal tenant is 10GB which is cumulatively applied to all the contribution folders.

NOTE

It is recommended to release the upload space after publishing the contribution folder to AEM Assets so that it is available to the other Brand Portal users for contribution.

If there is a need to extend the upload limit of your Brand Portal tenant beyond 10GB, contact Adobe Support specifying the requirement.

To upload new assets:

  1. Log in to your Brand Portal instance.
    The Brand Portal dashboard reflects all the existing folders permitted to the Brand Portal user along with the newly shared contribution folder.

  2. Select the contribution folder and click to open it. The contribution folder contains two sub folders – SHARED and NEW.

  3. Click on the NEW folder.

  4. Click Create > Files to upload individual files or folder (.zip) containing multiple assets.

  5. Browse and upload assets (files or folders) to the NEW folder.

After uploading all the assets or folders to the NEW folder, publish the contribution folder to AEM Assets.

Publish contribution folder to AEM Assets

Brand Portal users can publish the contribution folder to AEM Assets without needing access to the AEM author instance.

Ensure that you have gone through the asset requirements and upload the newly created assets in NEW folder within the contribution folder.

To publish contribution folder:

  1. Log in to your Brand Portal instance.

  2. Select contribution folder from the Brand Portal dashboard.

  3. Click Publish to AEM.

An email/pulse notification is sent to the Brand Portal user and administrators at different stages of the publishing workflow:

  1. Queued - A notification is sent to the Brand Portal user and Brand Portal administrators when a publishing workflow triggers in Brand Portal.

  2. Complete - A notification is sent to the Brand Portal user and Brand Portal administrators when the contribution folder is successfully published to AEM Assets.

After publishing the newly created assets to AEM Assets, the Brand Portal users can delete them from the NEW folder. Whereas, the Brand Portal administrator can delete the assets from both NEW and SHARED folder.

Once the objective of creating the contribution folder is achieved, the Brand Portal administrator can delete the contribution folder to release the upload space for other users.

Publishing job status

There are two reports which the administrators can utilize to view the status of the asset contribution folders published from Brand Portal to AEM Assets.

  • In Brand Portal, navigate to Tools > Asset Contribution Status. This report reflects the status of all the publishing jobs at different stages of the publishing workflow.

  • In AEM Assets (on premise or managed service), navigate to Assets > Jobs. This report reflects the final state (Success or Error) of all the publishing jobs.

  • In AEM Assets as a Cloud Service, navigate to Assets > Jobs.

    Or, you can directly navigate to Jobs from the global navigation.

    This report reflects the final state (Success or Error) of all the publishing jobs including the import of assets from Brand Portal to AEM Assets as a Cloud Service.
