Event Notifications

Event notifications can be enabled for Enterprise customers to provide near real-time alerts about changes made to assets in your DAM.

Typical use cases

  • You have a PIM system and need to know when new assets are uploaded or deleted so the system can be updated.
  • You distribute assets on a third-party website (such as your corporate website) and need to know when assets have been updated so you can make the required changes.

    • Full notifications include asset ID, filename, metadata fields (metadata name and value), keywords, the action performed (like "Asset upload", "Asset deletion", "Metadata updates"), who triggered the event, and the timestamp .
