Conditional Download

Control of asset download based upon metadata.


The Conditional Download function will prevent the download of all assets that are not returned by the configured saved search.

For example, if a date field is used to define downloadability, a typical search would be look like this:

  • Expiration Date is null OR Expiration Date is after today

This search, when configured as the saved search used by Conditional Download, will prevent download of any asset that has a past date in the Expiration Date field. Assets with no values in that field will not be affected.

Assets that are prevented from download via this function will have some menu commands suppressed.
