Metadata

Warpwire allows Media Library admins and asset owners to add metadata to their content. Multiple metadata profiles are supported, including the Dubin Core standard.

You can access and edit metadata by navigating to the settings page for a given asset or Library. Do that by clicking the three dot icon Three dots icon next to the title, then select "Settings."

Media options dropdown menu

You'll see the "Metadata Profiles" heading about halfway down the page. If any profiles already exist for the asset or Library, you'll see them listed. Otherwise you'll see "No profiles set."

To add a new metadata profile, click the blue "Add Profile" button on the right of the page.

Media options pane

You'll be able to select your desired profile from the Metadata Profiles dropdown menu, then begin filling in metadata information.

Metadata profile options dropdown menu

You can tab navigate between the profile's fields and can type-to-search for any field with a controlled vocabulary (i.e. a limited collection of predefined terms).

Metadata category dropdown with categories listed

If a field has an asterisk (*) it's a required part of the profile.

Many fields are not limited to a single response. If a field allows multiple entries, you'll see an "add another" link underneath the text area for that field. For example, a video may have more than one creator or subject.
