Bulk Edit Saved Search Content Metadata

You can apply metadata updates to all the content that is in a saved search at once.

These changes will apply too all assets in the saved search.

The updates to the metadata fields on the assets will replace any existing metadata that the asset had. So if you had a metadata field called description, and it was populated on an asset in this saved search with "Car", and you use this functionality to update with "Bus", then "Car" will be replaced with "Bus". If the description field was left blank when you updated the metadata then "Car" will not be replaced.
