    Get a clear view of your assets

    When your organization uses a lot of assets, an elegant solution for managing them is essential for your business. Having a centralized location to streamline processes is just the beginning. You also need to think about a way of organizing assets to make sure there are no duplicates or unused files cluttering your asset library.

    On top of that, giving your content creators the option to customize the images based on the limitations you set can be a huge time saver for your team.

    What are the main benefits you'll get with advanced asset management?

    • Organize your assets by tagging them for better asset governance.
    • Improve search experience by quickly finding the right assets.
    • Support asset reuse by customizing the same image for different use cases.
    • Secure your assets with an API key so that only your apps can fetch your assets.
    • Serve assets from your own custom domain to make your site more trustworthy.

    Let's have a closer look at how advanced asset management helps you both with assets in the asset library and when using the images in content items.

    Tag your assets with asset taxonomies

    To keep your assets in the asset library organized, tag your assets with asset taxonomy. You can categorize assets based on your selected criteria, for example, regions, teams, licenses, and so on.

    Find your tagged assets with asset taxonomies

    Your developers can also work with asset taxonomies to tag your assets via the Management API.

    Customize images to meet content limitations

    Make adjusting images to fit your content requirements easier. With image customization, content authors can create a variation of the original image within a few clicks. No need to contact a graphic expert each time they need to make a slight change.

    To display customized images on your website or an app, developers first need to apply custom query parameters to the asset's original URL. Find the details about the customized images in the Asset element object of the Delivery API.

    Your developers can also work with customized images via the Management API.

    Secure assets with an API key

    Do you manage confidential assets or need to run an intranet website? In that case, you might want to keep your assets away from the public.

    Restrict access to your assets by requiring an API key. Once set up, only the apps that use your API key can fetch your assets, no one else.

    Serve your assets from a custom domain

    Make your assets more trustworthy and improve your site's SEO. Set up a custom asset domain to serve assets from your own domain instead of Kontent's default asset domain.
