When running Assets Server, various internal plug-ins are automatically loaded:
- Asset Info report
- Version cleanup
This article briefly describes each of these plug-ins.
Where the plug-ins are stored
Info: The described step can only be performed on the on-premise version of Assets Server, not on the cloud version.
Internal plug-ins are stored in the following location:
The folder is created when the server starts for the first time and will be updated each subsequent time the server is started.
Note: Any changes that have been made will not be overwritten.

This plug-in allows you to clean up the system from file versions that are not required any more:
- Versions that match the configured versionCleanupFilter
- Versions that exist after a file is checked-in or after a file is promoted to the current version
For information about configuring this feature, see Working with different versions of a file in Elvis 6.
When the user's attention needs to be drawn to specific metadata, an icon (also referred to as a 'flag') can be added as a visual indicator (a process also known as 'flagging').
Example: You may want to visually display a status or indicate that a field contains specific information such as copyright info.
Such icons appear below thumbnails in the search results and can be set for any standard metadata field or custom metadata field.
Figure: Files in Assets showing icons for the Status, Approval and Copyright fields.
The available flags are stored in the elvis_client/flags folder and can be replaced by custom flags if needed.
For information about using these flags, see Highlighting metadata in Elvis 6 by using icons.
The default logo's that are used in any e-mails that are generated can be replaced by a custom logo. This is done by placing these in the folder of the Assets Server client plug-in:
