Repairing assets in Elvis 6
Under certain circumstances, assets that are stored in Elvis may become 'broken'. Think of metadata that is not fully extracted or embedded, entries that exist in the index for assets that have been deleted, thumbnails and previews that are missing, and so on.
Such issues can be fixed by running the Asset Processing Tool in Elvis 6.
Using the Asset Processing Tool
Step 1. Access the Management Console.
Do one of the following:
- Access the following URL and log in using system administrator credentials (a 'Super user' account):
<Elvis Server URL>/console
- Access the Elvis Pro client by accessing the following URL, log in using system administrator credentials, and choose Management Console from the Avatar menu.
<Elvis Server URL>/app
Step 2. From the menu, choose Tools > Asset Processing Tool.
