The Dependants screen lists the dependent assets of an asset, whether or not they are locked and their Status. Some examples of a dependent asset include the Page Contents, DIV and DIV Content.

The Current Lock Status section of the Dependants screen is shown in the figure below.

 The Dependants screen for a Standard Page

The following information is shown for the asset and its dependents:

  • Asset Name: this shows the name and asset ID for each asset in the list. To find out more information about the asset, hover the mouse over the Information icon icon. To find the asset in the Asset Map, click on the Binoculars icon icon.
  • Lock Status: this shows whether or not the asset is locked. If someone has a lock on the asset, [LOCKED] will appear next to the asset name. For example, in the figure above, Content DIV 77 (Id: #77) is locked but the other assets are not locked.
  • Status: this shows the Status of each dependent asset in the list. As dependent assets can be linked under many different assets, it can have a different Status to the current asset you are viewing. For example, in the figure above, the current Status of the asset is Live but Content DIV 77 (Id: #77) has a Status of Safe Editing. If the Status of the dependent asset is higher than the Status of the current asset, then * will appear against the Status. If the Status is lower, then ** will appear against the Status. Please note, however, that dependants can generally not have a lower status than their parent (unless moved, cloned or linked under).
