Finding and associating catalog assets

You can find and associate assets such as files, URLs or existing attachments to categories, sales catalogs, and catalog entries.

Before you begin

  1. If the asset is an attachment, ensure that the file or attachment is created in the Attachments tool.
  2. From the explorer view, navigate to the sales catalog, category, or catalog entry you want to associate an asset to. Alternatively, you can find the category, or catalog entry.
  3. Open the business object (sales catalog, category, or catalog entry); then click the Associated Assets tab.

    The associated assets table displays.


  1. Associate a URL:
    1. In the Associated Assets table, click Add URL.
      A new row is appended to the table.
    2. Add the following information to the new row:
    Sequence The order in which the object is displayed. Numbers are displayed in ascending order.
    Type Asset icon is displayed. This field is read-only.
    Store If workspaces are enabled, or in an extended sites model; the store the asset belongs to.
    Path The path of the URL.
    Code The language independent identifier.
    Administrative name The administrative name for the asset. This name displays only within Management Center.
    Display name The name of the asset that displays in the storefront
    Usage The usage for the asset.
    Description A description of the asset relation.
  2. If you are associating thumbnail angle images and full-size angle images, assign the same sequence number for each individual thumbnail and the corresponding full-size image.
    1. Assign a sequence number for the thumbnail angle image.
      For example, 1.0.
    2. Assign the same sequence number for the corresponding full-size angle image.
      For example, 1.0.
    3. Complete step 2.a and step 2.b for the rest of the images with a different sequence number for each pair of images.
    4. Click Save.
    Note: The search index must be rebuilt before the changes are displayed in the store. Contact a site administrator to rebuild the search index or, if an UpdateSearchIndex job is scheduled, wait for the specified time interval to pass.
  3. Click Save; then click Close.
