Restricting metadata field access

This feature is available only to Acquia DAM Professional subscribers.

Professional subscription admins can restrict access to certain metadata fields based on user groups. Users will only be able to view asset metadata that their group has permission to view. In addition, only the metadata that their group has permission to view will be embedded in the asset upon download.

Example use case: You may have assets that include confidential metadata like photographer address or contract information. You can restrict access to these metadata fields to specific user groups such as legal or account payable.
