Every asset in a DF Studio account is associated with a globally unique identifier, known as its DFS ID. In most contexts, an asset’s Share Link is a suitable way to identify it, but for complex workflows in which it is necessary to compile data involving assets across multiple DF Studio accounts, the DFS ID provides absolute certainty that this data will contain no duplicate identifiers.
The DFS ID can be viewed in the Info Inspector of any asset in DF Studio.
While working in any tab of the Asset Inspector, the DFS ID can be accessed by moving the mouse pointer over the title “Asset” at the top of the Inspector. This will reveal the DFS ID, as well as a button to copy the DFS ID to the clipboard.
This identifier can also be accessed using the DF Studio Enterprise Asset API. See the API documentation for further details.
The DFS ID can be used to locate assets when performing a global search, or when finding assets within a Project or Collection. It can also be specified as a parameter in an advanced search.
