Saved search and saved selection

Saved searches and saved selections are only available for assets, and while a saved search and a saved selection might seem similar, they actually serve different purposes, as explained in the following table.



Use when...

Saved search

A saved search is dynamic. When you select it, Content Hub regenerates search results based on the criteria you defined. This can be a filter criteria you defined in an advanced search or a filtered search.

  • You want to save specific search options, filters, or facets in the search criteria.

  • You want to display a saved search grid on a specific page.

  • You want to personalize the user experience using a saved search.

  • You want other users to have the ability to receive notifications about changes to a saved search.

  • You want to share search results.

Saved selection

A saved selection is a static collection of entities returned using the criteria you defined.

  • You want to create, organize, and share a selection of assets with other Content Hub users.

  • You want to grant read or edit permission for a specific selection of assets.


When you share a saved selection with other users, security policies and permissions apply to the assets in the saved selection.
