Dam--mediaexplorer--attribute.PNG Media Attributes is where media metadata fields can be managed. Media Attributes are specific to the Media Attributes section. Media Attributes are primarily system defined when your media assets are uploaded to the Media Attributes. However, Administrators can create custom Media Attributes that can be associated, like metadata, to your media assets.

Check out our handy-dandy Attributes wiki for more information. Also, here is a link in case you were looking for the Media Attribute Guide

Media Attribute Configuration

During Media Attribute creation, the Administrator defines what type of input the Media Attribute can accept. These fields can only be seen by Administrators and can be edited only after your media file is successfully uploaded.

For a list of types of data, a custom field can accept, check out this section on Attribute Types.

Default Media Attributes

  • Four default Media Attributes that can not be deleted: "Audio", "Image", "File", and "Video".
  • Default Media Attributes have special fields, "Allowed Extensions" and "Max File Size (MB)"
  • By default, all valid file formats are accepted and "Max File Size (MB)" is not restricted.
  • Steps to restrict "Allowed Extensions" and "Max File Size (MB)"

Media Attributes must be added to a Media Attribute Group, and that group added to a Media Attribute Family before it will appear when you edit your media assets of the same Category. If you'd like instructions on how to create Media Attributes, Media Attribute Groups, and Media Attribute Categories, check out our Media Attribute Guide.
