Deleting Assets

Deleting Assets will remove the asset and their sub-entities from the system. This includes:

  • Formats.
  • Metadata.
  • Relationships.
  • Shares.

There are two ways in which one can delete an asset. Either from the search page or from the assets page. It is also possible to delete subtitles and most formats through the files panel.

Delete from Search page

When deleting from the search page it is possible to delete multiple assets at the same time.

  1. Go to the search page.
  2. Select one or more assets which you wish to delete.
  3. Right-click on an asset.

  2. Click on the gear in the upper right corner.

Restoring Deleted Assets

The assets are not deleted straight-away, they are put into a recycle-bin for an Administrator to either purge or restore for a period of 24 hours.

Important: All an asset's files are removed from iconik if iconik is managing the files. If your Administrator has setup additional storage that the files are on, they will have defined on the storage whether the files get removed or not.
