Metadata

Metadata fields are attributes used to describe an asset for further categorization, grouping and retrieval
Filerobot distinguishes two types on metadata fields:
  • Embedded metadata: EXIF/IPTC metadata embedded by the camera or the graphical editor software
  • Custom metadata: metadata fields created in Filerobot to enrich assets
Filerobot allows the creation of simple or complex metadata structures, aka taxonomies, with each metadata field capable of supporting multiple dimensions, such as translations, currencies, distribution channels or any other variant required by your use case.
Metadata can be viewed and edited during the upload process, in bulk post-upload or individually for each asset in the asset management modal, see Manage assets.
Assets can then be searched by metadata field values and dynamic Collections created based on metadata field values.
