Is there any Possibility to add metadata to the asset/pdf

Hello All,

We have requirement where end user will be consuming the PDF’s which are available in Bloomreach CMS assets via below mentioned URL.


To the above PDF is there any possibility of adding metadata to the PDF ?

Note: We are trying to avoid creating metadata document type and link pdf to the metadata document.

Could you please let me know if there are any other possibilities.

Could you please help.

I believe you should be able to add extra properties to assets itself by extending default assets document type,still, you are serving a binary file (unless you want to embed meta data into PDF directly…for that you can use Implement a Custom File Upload Preprocessor - Bloomreach Experience Manager (PaaS/Self-Hosted) - The Fast and Flexible Headless CMS )

In addition to what @machak said, you can add properties to the asset in the cms. It works the same as an image or a document. It does require some understanding of how the namespaces and editor templates work. This is not really documented anywhere so figuring that out will be a challenge…
