Additional metadata fields for assets


#1

Hello,

I’m evaluating squidex and we need additional fields for assets like copyright information.
Are there any plans for this or how can we add additional fields to assets without losing the ability to update the CMS?

Greetings
Sascha

it is not possible yet. BUT: If you rererence an image you could also create an array field with several nested fields, e…g.

  • Title
  • asset
  • Copyright Info

Alright, thanks.
As a workaround, we can use a tag with a predefined format for the copyright.

Can we hook into the upload of an asset and read the embedded meta information of the file so that we can add the tag “automatically”?

You could have a look to the following class / interface: https://github.com/Squidex/squidex/blob/master/src/Squidex.Domain.Apps.Entities/Assets/ImageTagGenerator.cs
