Archiving data in Acquia DAM

This is an add-on feature. Contact your Account Manager to add this feature to your subscription.
The information on this page applies only to users that have Admin or Contributor role type permissions.

Archival storage allows you to store and manage your rarely-used files, while keeping them organized, close-at-hand, and easy to find and access.

Assets that are archived are inactive — therefore not viewable in Brand Connect — and will display an archive icon Archive icon on the asset thumbnail. After an asset is archived, users cannot download the asset until it is unarchived (which typically takes approximately 24 hours).

Notes

  • Metadata cannot be added to archived assets.
  • By default, only assets that are not archived will show up in search results. However, you can filter for archived assets.
