Digital Asset Management

Upload & Store

Updated: March 18, 2024

Bulk Upload

On Nuxeo Platform, different features are available to let you upload and/or create your assets in every possible way.

From Nuxeo platform

Drag and Drop

You can use drag and drop to easily import documents into a workspace or just to create one document at a time. It enables you to quickly drag and drop documents in the workspace that you want.

You can also drag and drop a file directly in the file view in order to replace the already uploaded file.

Import Button

You can also drag and drop one or more files of any type from the Import tab of the creation popup.

From this Import button you will be able to import with properties, which means fill in metadata of the document(s) before they are created in the workspace.

From Nuxeo Drive

Nuxeo Drive is a Nuxeo addon that enables the synchronization of folders or workspaces from the Nuxeo Platform with local folder on your computer.

You can very easily import document by moving them from a desktop folder to a Nuxeo Drive folder, or creating office files directly in a Nuxeo Drive folder.

Read the Nuxeo Drive documentation for more information.


Connect with Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive

Nuxeo Live Connect allows you to create a content application that handles cloud files (Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive...) as if they were local files. Files remain in the cloud but they are referenced in the Nuxeo repository as if they were stored within it. This allows the user to benefit from thumbnailing service, full text, conversions, etc.

Read the Nuxeo Live Connect documentation for more information.

Automated Metadata Extraction

The Nuxeo Platform enables to extract information from the uploaded files attached to a document and automatically fill in the document metadata at creation time. This enables you to leverage metadata existing outside the Nuxeo Platform to automatically categorize documents, preventing users from editing document to report these metadata. Automated metadata extraction is activated by default on Nuxeo DAM: The IPTC legend, copyright and source are used to automatically fill in the description, rights and source metadata of pictures.

Read the Binary Metadata documentation for more information.
