Entity indicators

The Entity indicators component highlights information about an entity, for example when the entity is a Draft, is Locked, or has been Rejected. The component can include multiple indicators, each indicating distinct information about the entity and only appearing when a specific condition is met.

In the following example, the entity indicator component includes two indicators: a label displaying the entity's status (draft), and an icon indicating that the associated file is a duplicate.
