Resources are the foundation of the authoring work of users. Resources can be viewed either by navigating to the Dashboard page or visiting the dedicated Resources page.

Resources Page

The Resources page provides a list-style overview of all the resources available in Snowray.
Depending on your access type, you might not have permission to all the content. For more information, check out the Access management page.
Each resource type is indicated with its own icon, and they can be arranged into Bundles to create a hierarchical and more organized structure.

Selecting a resource will activate the Details section, which will be updated with useful information about the given resource, such as ID, status, owner, creation date, or access details.
