Create Local Copy of a Shared Asset

To edit an existing asset locally, share the asset, then create a local copy. The original asset and local copy retain sharing properties that associate them with each other.

  1. Share an asset to a set of MIDs. In this example, the asset is shared with business units 333 and 555.

  2. Retrieve the original asset using GET /asset/v1/content/assets/{id}.

  3. Create a new asset with the original asset's payload plus the sharingProperties using POST /asset/v1/content/assets.

    • sharedFrom is the asset ID of the original asset.

    • sharedFromMID is MID the asset came from.

  4. If you retrieve the original asset again, notice that the sharingProperties are updated with the local edit created by business unit 333. The read-only localAssets property stores the MID and asset ID for the local edit in the recipient MID.
