As a developer you need to identify the right assets and content to display within websites, applications, and other channels. To provide you with the required search capabilities, Watson Content Hub is built on the powerful enterprise search platform Solr.
When your editors create, update, and publish assets or content, the hub stores related data in search collections. When your editors delete assets or content, the hub removes the corresponding data from the underlying search collections. Additionally, Watson Content Hub tracks your categories, content types, image profiles, and taxonomies in its authoring search collections.
name – Contains the name of an item.
description – Contains the description of an item.
classification – Describes the type of item, for example, asset, category, content, content-type, image-profile, or taxonomy.
created – Contains the creation date of the item.
creator – Contains the name of the user that created the item.
lastModified – Contains the last modification date of the item.
lastModifier – Contains name of the user that last modified the item.
categories – Contains a list of all category selections for the asset or content.
tags – Contains the list of tags.
assetType – If the result is an asset, the value is document, file, image, or video.
mediaType – If the result is an asset, the value is the media type.
For a complete list, refer to the search REST API documentation that is available in the API Explorer.
As a developer, you can access the indexed items by using the REST APIs. To allow for a separation of the authoring system and the delivery system, two different Watson Content Hub APIs are available for search.
