Upload new versions

Use Upload file to add a new version of the asset file to Sitecore Content Hub. Available versions are displayed on the asset details page in the All files list. Each version can have its own list of available formats (known as renditions). By default, Content Hub includes several default renditions.

When you upload a file using the Import file method, Content Hub creates an upload job. You can follow the progress of the job on the Background processes page.


The upload size limit is 10 GB per file.

To upload a new version:

  1. On the menu bar, click Assets.

  2. On the Assets page, click the asset for which you want to upload a new version.

  3. On the asset details page, click Upload and select Upload file.

  4. In the Upload file dialog box, do one of the following;

    • Click Select files, navigate to the location where the files are saved, select them, and click Open.
    • Drag the files you want to upload into the Upload file dialog box.

    The uploaded file is set as the master and identified with the Master icon.

  5. To set a specific asset version as master, in the All files pane, click All files and select Set as master.

  6. To compare an asset version to the master, in the All files pane, click All files and select Compare to master.

    The Compare to master option opens a new window with the master version on the left and the selected version on the right. Click and move the slider to see the differences between versions.


There are differences between Upload file and Upload alternative thumbnail, which include:

  • Upload file uploads a new file version of the asset, which is set as the master file version for the asset.
  • Upload alternative thumbnail uploads only a new thumbnail for the master file version of the asset.
