Create contribution folder

AEM administrators and non-admin users having permission to create a new folder, can create a contribution folder in AEM Assets.
To create a contribution folder, create a new folder of type Asset Contribution, ensuring the new folder created is open to asset submission by Brand Portal users. This automatically triggers a workflow which creates two additional sub folders, called SHARED and NEW, within the contribution folder.


You can create multiple contribution folders within a folder but you must not not create a contribution folder inside another contribution folder.

To create a contribution folder:

  1. Log in to your AEM author instance.

    The default URL is http:// localhost:4502/aem/start.html.

  2. Navigate to Assets > Files. It lists all the existing folders in the AEM Assets repository.

  3. Click Create to create a new folder. Create Folder dialog opens.

  4. Enter Title and Name of the folder and select the Asset Contribution check box.
    It is recommended to use lowercase letters without any space to name the folder.

  5. Click Create. You can see the contribution folder listed in the AEM Assets repository.


    A non-admin user can create and share an asset contribution folder but cannot modify or delete it.

  6. Click to open the contribution folder, you can see two sub folders–SHARED and NEW are automatically created within the contribution folder.

You can now configure the contribution folder properties.
