Assets & LDP

Overview

There are several utilities that can be used to configure assets and the access to them. These are in various places in the CMS depending upon their scope; some are found in the account settings, some in the site settings, and some are available on the Assets screen. For more information regarding usage for each:

  • Enable/Disable LDP: Live Delivery Platform (LDP) is an additional modular feature set available for OU Campus used for creating Image Gallery Assets and Form Assets. After purchase, it can be disabled and enabled if necessary at the account level.
    Location: Setup > Account > Optional Features > LDP.
  • Asset Manager: An account-level setting (under Optional Features) that completely disables access to assets by removing it from the Content menu and the File Navigation sidebar.
    Location: Setup > Account > Optional Features > Asset Manager.
  • LDP Gallery Directory: This is a site setting that determines where images for an Image Gallery Asset are located.
    Location: Setup > Sites > Edit > Site > LDP Settings > LDP Gallery Directory.
  • LDP Settings: A site setting to configure the host/IP for LDP administrator functionality.
    Location: Setup > Sites > Edit > Site > LDP Settings > LDP Admin Host.
  • Site Asset Access: Access to assets can be configured at the site level for all assets and assets managements or for asset types.
    Location: Setup > Sites > Edit > Asset Access.
  • Lock to Site: Asset usage can be limited to only the site on which it was created. Available during asset creation or when editing an asset.
  • Asset Access: Access to an individual asset can be used to override the site asset access setting.
  • Publish Threshold: This is an account setting that allows an administrator to limit the number of pages that can be published when an asset is re-published.

Assets by default can be created by Level 4 and higher users unless otherwise restricted by an administrator. Any user who can edit a page can insert an asset from within the WYSIWYG unless the asset has otherwise been restricted by, for example, using the lock to site functionality.
