Asset Counter Report

Last Updated: 14 Oct 2016

The Asset Counter Report provides a count of each type of asset under a particular root node. For example, if you wanted to know how many Standard Pages or PDFFiles that are in your Site, you can set up and run this report to view this information. You can filter this report based on asset types and can determine how it is ordered.

The documentation on this page only contains information that is specific to this Report Type. Click here to read more about the generic functionality that is available for the Report Asset.

Asset Types

This section allows you to restrict which asset types are counted for the report. For example, you can create a report that only counts the Standard Pages in your Site instead of all of the assets in your Site. The Asset Types section of the Details screen is shown in the figure below.
