Resources

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.
Resources Page
Selecting a resource will activate the Quick Details section, which will be updated with useful information about the given resource, such as ID, status, creation date, or visibility.
Resrouce Details Section
You can click the title of the resource in the Quick Details header to navigate to its Overview tab.

Shared with me

Users can have access to certain resources owned by organizations or other users, either by being members of said organization or through a direct invitation to a resource. These resources are listed in the Shared with me tab of the Resources page.
The owner of the resource is displayed in front of the resource title.

You can visit the owner's profile by clicking on it in the title.

Features

Browsing

Resources can be accessed in two different ways: either from the Dashboard or from the Resources Page. Clicking on the title of a resource, will always open it and take users to its Overview tab, where all the relevant information is displayed, such as title, ID, URL, language, usage, contact, purpose, copyright and description.
To change certain details on the Overview tab, press the
button. Fields, where data can be modified, will turn into boxes and you can change their content. Once done, just press
to persist your changes.
If you want to access the Content tab of a resource, double-click on its row.

Searching

The search bar within the Resources page helps users to find their resources more easily.

You can combine the term search with filters to refine your searches even more.

A quick access bar is also available at the top header section. This is a global search that is accessible not only from the Resources page but throughout the whole application as well.

button will take users to the Overview tab of the newly created resource.

Resource Types

There are four main resources to work with:

Lifecycle

After creating a resource, its status will automatically be set to draft. Once the content reached its desired state and was released, the status of the resource will be updated to active. If a resource is still in draft status and is not intended to be used later on, it can be deleted. On the other hand, if a resource becomes outdated or out of use after being released, it can only be retired at that point.
Resources can still be viewed after transitioning to retired status, however, deleted resources will not be available in the app anymore.
Resource Lifecycle

Refresh Page

When working with resources, the page of the resource will not be refreshed automatically. If a page gets outdated because of modifications made by other users, a dialog will appear in the bottom right corner to indicate this.
Refresh Page
To refresh the page, simply click on the button prompted in the notification.
Refreshing the page will discard all the uncommitted changes.
