Asset Statuses

Assets can hold one or more of the following statuses:

Archived: The Asset (and associated file) has been archived to another System.

Locked: The Asset has been locked by a Job.

Online: The Asset is not Archived and is available for us in Ooyala Flex.

Published: The Asset has been published to one or more remote platforms (i.e. YouTube).

Deleted: The Asset has been deleted (will be visible in the Trash bin and can still be restored).

Purged: The Asset's underlying file has been deleted from the underlying Storage Resource.

Purging an Asset needs to be considered carefully as Ooyala Flex cannot restore a file that has been deleted from an underlying storage system.

It is important to understand the difference between deleted and purged Assets.
