Label Metadata

Label metadata values are independent from taxonomies. You can enter any value when assigning metadata to files in the content library.

Operation

To use label metadata, you need to create a metadata category in the Metadata interface.

Guidelines

Keep the following guidelines in mind when using label metadata:

  • We recommend to use label metadata if your organization does not have composed taxonomies or the existing taxonomies quickly evolve.
  • Incorporate frequently used label metadata items into taxonomies.
  • Third-party systems can use label metadata to integrate with Heretto CCMS.
