PCM Assets

All Sitecore PCM™ entities, where assets are uploaded, store these assets in the Standard repository. Therefore all uploaded assets included in Sitecore PCM™ are also available from within Sitecore DAM™. The assets can be shown on the Assets, Create or Review pages, depending on their location in the asset approval workflow.

When the file is uploaded as an asset to an entity in Sitecore PCM™, it is also simultaneously passed to the Create page.

From the Create page, the asset can be sent for approval and moved to the Review page. For more information on the Create page, please see Create.

Assets submitted for approval in the Create page appear on the Review page. The Review page acts as a final checkpoint before making the assets available on the Assets page and searchable. Assets can be approved or rejected, annotations can be added to the asset, new file versions can be uploaded, and metadata can be updated. For more information on the Review page, please see Review page.

If assets uploaded in Sitecore PCM™ are approved on the Review page, they are made available in the Assets page as approved assets that are available to users of Sitecore DAM™.
