To find a great number of contents through THRON DAM Platform, you can use our Intelligent Search Engine, the sorting and filtering options available on the platform.


This service allows Platform users to find content simply and quickly, providing a list of assets ordered by relevance according to the parameters used for the search.


Text search


Type one or more keywords into THRON search bar to find your content through text search. The search will retrieve content matching:

  • Title
  • Description
  • Tags and metadata
  • Content's body (the text body in case of a document, the transcript in case of an audio or video)

How does the text search work?

  • It works on all the indexed words of the content
  • It retrieves assets whose titles, descriptions, tags, metadata, or content’s body start with the keywords you typed into the search bar
  • It searched the keywords you typed into the root of all the indexed words.
  • It returns assets sorting them by giving more importance to the exact matches than the partial ones.

 This kind of search helps you finding what are you looking for offering you suggestions of

  • Auto-completion on the typed keywords – the system supports “fuzzy” search, i.e. it automatically corrects the text entered in the search field up to a maximum of one typo
  • Contents that match the result – the system suggests contents for which the search has identified the best possible match, giving priority to the match over the content's title.

Search text can also help you find your content in other ways. 


1. Keyword search within words that contain separators

In order to facilitate the search for keywords within content titles, the system takes into consideration also those contents whose titles contain characters used as separators: "- _ ."

For example, if you type "commerce" or "frontal" you will obtain as results contents that have the following matches: "e-commerce"; "Bag_frontal.jpeg".


2. Exact multi-keyword search

Type multiple keywords enclosed in double quotes “”  to perform exact searches.

For example, if you type "red bag" enclosed in double-quotes, the system will exclude those assets corresponding only to "red" or only to "bag" from the results.


3. Search keywords containing separators (-_.) 

The separators within search keywords are considered as spaces. For example, a search with the keyword "red_bag" is equivalent to a search with the two keywords "red bag".





You have at your disposal multiple filtering options to perfect your search.

1. Sorting

You can sort content by

  • Last update (descending): newest first (default)
  • Last update (ascending): oldest first
  • Creation (descending): newest first
  • Creation (ascending): oldest first
  • Ranking
  • Alphabetical order by content title from A to Z and viceversa. In case of content with multiple language titles, the content list will be alphabetically ordered according to:
    • the preferred language, for those content which have been enriched with a title in the preferred language;
    • another language among the default ones in the system preferences, for those assets which have not been enriched with a title in primary language. 

2. Filter by type or file extension

Click on "Type" to filter your content list by content type or file extension. For what concerns file extensions, you will find a set of checkboxes which correspond to the most used ones. You can also add a new one through the text field, which offers suggestions of file extensions by autocompletion.


3. Filter by detail

Click on "Detail" to filter your content list by:

  • Owner
  • Author
  • Creation date
  • Last update.

4.Filter by tags

You can also filter your content using one or more tags. Click on “Tag” and then select the tags your need or type them in the dedicated box (the system will suggest tags by autocompletion). Specify if the filtering must include all the content which:

  • Contain the selected tags - Must contain (AND operator)
  • Not contain the selected tags - Must not contain (NOT operator)
  • Contain at least one of the selected tags - At least one (OR operator)

5. Advanced filter via metadata key

You can also perform an advanced search filtering content by key metadata providing specific key-value pairs. Specify if the filtering must include all the content which:

  • contain all the key metadata (AND operator)
  • contain at least one of the key metadata (OR operator)

6. Advanced filter via all metadata type

The advanced filter allows you to filter content by metadata considering also all the other available metadata types, providing specific key-value pairs in the correct field. Results can be filtered using two different operators:

  • Content must contain all the key metadata (AND operator)
  • Content must contain at least one of the key metadata (OR operator)

7. Filter by product

You can also filter contents by linked product: you will find all the representative contents associated to the products you have indicated. Filter can be done from the following product attributes:

  • A list of product id (OR operator)
  • A list of aliases (OR operator)
  • A list of tags or metadata.
