Support for template assets

Maja Pejčić 2 years ago in Digital Asset Management updated by Gerda Oppewal 2 years ago 3

It would be good for DAM to support templates (such as INDT) OOTB. Currently it is possible to add template file types manually (configure them), however use cases for adequate usage of templates should be covered as well:

Ideally DAM should support using template assets in two different ways:

  • When an supper user checks the template out, they should be able to modify the template itself and check it back in, so that other users can use modified template.
  • When a creative user checks the template out, they would be able only to create a new asset based on template, without actually being allowed to modify the template.

Current permissions model does not allow for such a configuration, as anybody who checks an asset out can modify it. In case of templates, this should be allowed only for privileged users.

We consider the usage of templates in general within the DAM a valid use case, which we will look into for future versions post-2019.
