Publish details

From ImageVault 5.3 you can trace your published media. You can add a url and/or text that identifies the place where the published file is being used. You can also define a group id to group the publishes of a media in ImageVault.

Note: Old publishes will be shown as "Unknown publishing place". They wont either have a date of publish.

Add Publish details

Normally when using the sdk client to get media you will get a public url but without possability to trace it more than by the publish identifier. By adding PublishDetailsData you can describe where you will use the public url.

// Get public sdk client
var client = ImageVault.Client.ClientFactory.GetSdkClient();

// Fictive content id for place of usage
var contentId = Guid.NewGuid();

// Create a query with publish details
var query = new ImageVault.Common.Data.Query.MediaItemQuery
{
    Filter =
    {
        // Id for media
        Id = {27236}
    },
    Populate =
    {
        // Original format
        MediaFormats =
        {
            new OriginalFormat()
        },
        // Add publish info with publish details
        PublishInfo = new PublishInfo(client.PublishIdentifier, new PublishDetailsData
        {
            GroupId = contentId.ToString(),
            Text = "Startpage slider images",
            Url = "http://mysimplewebsite.com/start"
        })
    }
};

// Create media service
var mediaService = client.CreateChannel<ImageVault.Common.Services.IMediaService>();

// Execute query
var mediaItem = mediaService.Find(query).Single();

UsedOn query method

UsedOn is an extension for the Query method and can be used for Media or MediaItem. This will set the PublishDetailsData and PublishIdentifier in PublishInfo.

// Get public sdk client
var client = ImageVault.Client.ClientFactory.GetSdkClient();

// Fictive content id for place of usage
var contentId = Guid.NewGuid();

// Get mediaitem
var mediaItem = client.Query<ImageFormat.GalleryImage>().UsedOn(new PublishDetailsData
{
    GroupId = contentId.ToString(),
    Text = "Startpage slider images",
    Url = "http://mysimplewebsite.com/start"
}).FirstOrDefault(mi => mi.Id == 27236);

Get publish details

You can get publish details for a MediaItem by setting PublishDetails to true.

// Get public sdk client
var client = ImageVault.Client.ClientFactory.GetSdkClient();

// Create a query with publish details
var publishDetailsQuery = new ImageVault.Common.Data.Query.MediaItemQuery
{
    Filter =
    {
        // Id for media
        Id = {27236}
    },

    Populate =
    {
        // Set publish details to true to return publish details
        PublishDetails = true
    }
};

// Create media service
var mediaService = client.CreateChannel<ImageVault.Common.Services.IMediaService>();

// Execute query
var mediaItemWithPublishDetails = mediaService.Find(publishDetailsQuery).Single();
