Trigger extract archive

Composite assets are assets containing multiple files. To extract and display the list of files contained in a composite asset on the asset details page, you need to set the asset Type as Archive. The first acceptable .mp4, .jpg or, .pdf file from this list of files is automatically set as the master file.


Make sure that the Trigger vision switch is turned off in your Archive asset type properties.


The files are listed alphabetically. If you want a specific file to act as the master file, change its name to make it come first in alphabetical order, then zip the directory.

To set an asset as Archive and trigger the extract archive:

  1. On the menu bar, click Assets.

  2. On the Assets page, click the asset you want to edit.

  3. On the asset details page, in the Overview pane, click Edit edit icon.

  4. Set the Type field to Archive.

  5. Click Save.


You can also set the asset type when you create it.
