Create public links

Sitecore Content Hub lets you create public links for assets that you can share externally. You can create a public link for a single asset from its details page or links for multiple assets at once using a bulk operation.

Once you create public links, you can use them to layer images and perform image transformations.

Note

Only assets with a size of 50 MB or smaller and of types jpeg, png, or webp are supported.

To create a public link for a single asset:

  1. On the menu bar, click Assets.

  2. On the Assets page, find the asset you want and click it.

  3. On the asset details page, click More actions > Public links .

  4. In the Public links dialog, click + Public link.

  5. In the New public link dialog, enter the following information:

    Field

    Description

    Rendition

    Rendition of the asset for which you want to create a public link.

    Crop

    Don't crop, Crop to center, Crop to a custom focal point, Smart crop, or Manual crop. Selecting Crop to a custom focal point displays a Edit focal point button that lets you set up a focal point that is initially centered.

    Dimensions

    Choose the size of the image for this link:

    • Don’t resize: Uses the image’s original dimensions.

    • Custom width and height: Adds Width and Height fields to the dialog box, letting you specify a custom width and height.

    • Preset dimensions.

    The image aspect ratio is locked, so changing one of these values will automatically change the other.

    URL path

    Automatically generated URL path setting for a public link. Clicking Refresh refresh icon generates a new URL path setting that you can edit manually. You can use the auto-generated path setting or enter one of your own (for example, Figure1-cropped).

    Linkexpiration

    Expiration date for the link. Selecting no value means the public link never expires.

    Note

    Setting a focal point does not affect other public links, custom downloads, or renditions created for the same or any other asset.
