Take control of your digital rights management

Keep your DAM secure by making sure only the right people have access to it. Orange DAM gives you the power to decide who can access your digital asset management platform, and what they can do once they’re there.

DAM permissions charts

Control digital asset management access

  • Automatically enforce DAM user permissions.
  • Create reports showing all the users who access your digital asset management system.
  • Grant management access to partner organizations, contributors, or country offices for specific folders.
  • Authenticate users with SSO, Active Directory, LDAP.
  • Administrators can remove or block users instantly.

Assign roles and permissions

  • Create unlimited groups and roles with specific, granular permissions for each group.
  • Refine permissions for individual users, company accounts, contact groups, and roles.
  • Allow users to access assets and grant privileges to perform certain actions on those assets.
  • Set inherited permissions for parent folders and have those permissions apply to child folders and assets.
  • Stop those inherited permissions whenever you like in order to control who can access specific content.
  • Choose permissions based on scope. For instance, you can apply permissions based on document subtypes or the document's purpose.
  • Test set permissions to see whether users can access assets or perform certain actions, such as downloading.
  • Digital asset management administrators can assign users to one or multiple groups, so those users can control the permissions for those groups.
  • Lock access by asset, folder, user, or user group.
  • Set an end date for permissions, so you can grant a user temporary access for a specified period of time.
