Introduction to Assets

Agility provides a robust Digital Assets Manager, a central place where you can store all of the digital files that you want to make available online.

All of the files within the assets manager are automatically deployed to and served over a lightning-fast CDN. 

The server closest to your user will serve all assets, thus minimizing latency and benefitting your website or application for speed and performance.

Links to assets may look like: https://cdn.aglty.io/{GUID}/folder-name/cat.jpeg

To access your assets, click on Assets:

Valid File Types

Within the Digital Assets Manager, you can upload any file type. Common asset types are:

  • .jpg
  • .png
  • .svg
  • .webp
  • .gif
  • .zip
  • .mp3
  • .pdf
  • .mp4

Folders

Within the Assets area, you can organize your assets into folders. 

When you place an asset within a folder, it will determine the URL path of the asset. For example, if you have a folder in the root of the Assets area called products, then any assets within that folder will be accessible via /products/{fileName}.

Folder Level Security

Agility provides security for Assets at a Folder level. This allows Admins to grant users the ability to work with specific folders in the Assets section. These users will only be able to see folders that they have been granted access to. As well, users who only have global Reader access will not be able to access files in the root Assets folder.

Folder Level Security Roles

There are 3 Levels of Folder Security Access:

  1. Contributor: Users can view the folders that they have been given access to (Read Only).
  2. Editor: Users are able to make uploads as well as changes to Media files.
  3. Delete: Users have the same permissions as an Editor but with Deleting permissions.

How to Add Folder Level Security

Navigate to your Assets, select the folder you wish to apply security on, then select Edit.

Click on the Security tab, then click the '+' icon.

Next, select the user(s) you wish to enable Folder Security for.

Click on Select Roles, then select the security role access level you wish to give them.
