Searching for Assets
On the MANAGE page, you can search for assets in a variety of ways.
After logging in to Backlot, go to the MANAGE page, where you can search your assets.
In the Search text box, enter a search string to match against the title, description, or metadata of videos, and hit Enter. The following restrictions apply:
- The search is not case-sensitive.
- The search string must be at least 3 characters long.
- The special characters $ and ^ must be escaped with a backslash, like this: \$ or \^.
- To search for partial (rather than exact) strings in either titles or descriptions (but not in metadata), you can use the * wildcard character. For example, the string Jim* matches videos with titles or description containing Jim1, JimJam, or Jim99, but it does not match a video with the title JamJim. To match JamJim, you can use Jam* or *Jim.
