Upload assets

The first step in digital asset management is to add assets to Sitecore Digital Asset Management (DAM). After you upload assets, you can submit them for approval or directly publish them if you have the required permissions. You can also upload new versions of an asset as well as compare versions.


While assets upload, do not close the Create page or the upload stops. You can pause and resume the upload operation.


The upload size limit is 10 GB per file.

To upload assets:

  1. On the menu bar, click Create.

  2. On the Create page, in the top-right corner of the application window, click Upload files .

  3. In the Upload files dialog box, do one of the following:

    • Drag the files you want to upload in the Upload tab and, when the upload finishes, click Done.

    • Click Select files and open the file you want to upload, and when the upload finishes, click Done.

    • Click the Import links tab, paste links to the files you want to upload, and then click Import.


Uploading a file using the Import file method creates an upload job. You can follow the progress of the job in your Background processes page. To upload larger files (1GB and above), it is recommended to use the Import Links function and upload using blob URLs or SAS links, so that the end user's connection does not affect the upload job.
