Managing Custom Metadata

Custom metadata enables you to add useful information to your assets. You can associate custom metadata with any type of asset.

You can use custom metadata for any purpose. Some common uses include:

  • Organizing and categorizing content
  • Storing information about videos to display on pages on which they are embedded
  • Specifying information about how to display videos, such as CSS data
  • Processing data for workflow integration

You can add metadata to assets through the Backlot UI or Backlot API. Once added, you can consume metadata through the Backlot UI or Backlot API.

The limit is 100 name/value pairs per asset.

The name is limited to 128 characters. There are other restrictions on allowed characters in the name; see Custom Metadata

The value is limited to 2,048 characters.
