Database assets are included in the central repository. They can only be created in the central repository.
What should I use it for?
If you want to add a link to one of your system’s databases, you should use this asset type.
What shouldn’t I use it for?
If you aren’t adding a link to one of your system’s databases, you don’t want to use this asset type.
The differences between databases and links:
Database assets are the more exclusive siblings of your link assets. Databases are still just links that you can add to your guide, with a couple of big differences.
You cannot create new database assets from a guide (you can only reuse existing ones), and only Admin accounts (or Regular accounts with additional permissions - CMS Only) can create and manage them.
This ensures that everyone is using the right information for the database and assists with ease of database management.
