By default, XMP schema are extracted from digital images by Inbound Refinery and
passed to Content Server. Content Server then displays the data on the Image Data tab
of a digital asset. If OracleTextSearch is installed and enabled, the data is indexed and
available for searching through a full-text search.
To allow searching on specific criteria in the XMP metadata, a placeholder field must
be enabled on the Content Server user interface using the DAM Search Fields
Administration page and the index rebuilt. Once done, users can search for content
using the specific criteria in the XMP data.
The DAM Search Fields Administration page lists the primary XMP schema from the
XMP specification as categories, and lists the available Content Server placeholder
field names, labels and XMP-related descriptions within each category. Expand the
category to find the specific XMP-related description to be indexed and enable the
placeholder field. Once enabled, Click Update on the page and rebuild your search
To access this Content Server page, expand the Content Server Administration tray
and click DAM Administration.
Native file compression
Enter the native file compression threshold size in MB. The
default threshold size is 1024 MB (1 GB). Unless the native file
exceeds the threshold size, it will be compressed before the
content server transfers it to a refinery. This setting enables you to
avoid the overhead of compressing very large files (for example,
large video files). If you do not want any native files to be
compressed before transfer, set the native file compression
threshold size to 0.

this option is selected, when a conversion fails (a web-viewable
rendition cannot be produced) a copy of the native file is placed in
the weblayout directory. When this option is cleared, the native
file is not copied to the weblayout directory.
