Assets are imported in folders (managed by administrators). You need to have Write permission on at least one folder to be able to import assets in Nuxeo DAM.

You can import either single digital files or a set of files in a zipped folder. In both cases, documents are imported in an import set, that you can use to find the assets again. Folders can contains several import sets.

Here are the steps to import assets in Nuxeo DAM:
  1. Click on "Import" in the page header.
    The Import window is displayed.
  2. Select the file (zip or single digital file) to import. When you click on "Select File", a pop up will allow to browse your drives. For large files, the percent of upload progress is shown.
  3. Select the folder in which the assets are imported.

    If you choose new folder, you will have to choose the name of the new folder.

  4. Fill in the main metadata that will be applied to all the assets of the set (see below for information on the import set metadata).
  5. Click on the "Create" button.
    Once the import is done, you can see the digital files as thumbnails, with the first file selected on the right side of the window.
