Acquia DAM

Managing event notifications

This feature is available only to Acquia DAM Classic Professional subscribers.

Event notifications can be enabled for Professional subscription customers to provide near real-time alerts about changes made to assets in your DAM.

Typical use cases

  • You have a PIM system and need to know when new assets are uploaded or deleted so the system can be updated.

  • You distribute assets on a third-party website (such as your corporate website) and need to know when assets have been updated so you can make the required changes.

To use event notifications, you will need to enable it in Acquia DAM Classic and configure your Amazon SNS or SQS account to relay messages between the Acquia DAM Classic and the desired client.

  2. Click the settings icon in the top navigation, and then click System Preferences.

  5. Click Save for the section.

  6. In the Select Event Notifications section, determine the amount of notifications for each of the available events, based on the following list values:

    • Full - Includes the asset ID, filename, metadata fields (metadata name and value), keywords, the action performed (such as Asset upload, Asset deletion, and Metadata updates), who triggered the event, and the timestamp

    • Minimal - Includes the asset ID, the action performed, and the timestamp
