Now you can continue to prepare the metadata file.
- Click the “Source ID” to go to the metadata file.
- Under the “Presentation” tab - edit all info about the movie
- Add translations under the “translations” tab
- Add Images under the “Images” tab
- Under the tab “Metadata” set labels which will be used with collections, when and where the metadata file will be available in the service and add some custom metadata if necessary as json file.
- Save your changes. The changes will be pushed to your service automatically.
For a metadata file to show up in the service it must be included in a collection. This can be done by
- adding a “Label” to the metadata asset that matches collection based on that label
- manually add the metadata asset in a collection
- have a collection that Match all metadata files
