Delete an asset from your system

 Be careful when deleting assets!

Deleting an asset from the Content > Assets page will permanently remove it from your system and cannot be undone.

  • If the asset is being reused (i.e. mapped) on other guides, deleting that asset will also remove it from those guides. The Mapping Count column will indicate the number of guides where an asset is being reused.
  • Statistics for deleted Link, Document/File, and Book assets will be retained. They will appear in your Assets statistics by their ID number and a name of "[deleted]".
  • Only an Admin, an asset's owner, or a regular user with the Manage Assets permission (CMS only) can delete an asset.
