Local file system media library

B2B Commerce Cloud uses a WYSIWYG system to manage content from the local file system within the Admin Console. This article provides information on performing some of the common tasks associated with uploading and managing content.

Note

In most situations, additional options are available by right-clicking an object. For example, right-click an image to view, download, rename, or delete the file.

File manager

The Media Manager is located in the Admin Console by going to Library > Media. It is comprised of three main parts:

  • Folder Pane
  • Toolbar
  • File Pane

Folder pane

The Folder Pane of the Media Manager displays content in a hierarchical tree view. This is helpful for organizing content in a specific way, making it is easier to find and manage content.

Add folders

To add a new folder, right-click on a folder in the folder pane and select New Subfolder.Folder names cannot start with a capital letter.

The UserFiles folder is the primary folder and cannot be the child of any other folder. Any number of subfolders can be added under it and those folders can also have any number of subfolders, allowing for a more complex folder hierarchy. The UserFiles folder name cannot be changed.

Toolbar

The toolbar is used to access the File Manager features.

Upload a file

  1. Go to Admin Console > Library > Media.
  2. In the Folders Pane of the File Manager, first select the file destination, as the uploaded file is added to the currently selected folder automatically. If the folder does not exist, create it, or move the files after uploading them.
  3. In the top toolbar, click Upload.
  4. Select the desired files and click Open.
