The complete guide to connect a DAM to your PIM


To better understand what we are talking about, have a look at Akeneo PIM Asset manager concepts.

Every DAM (Digital Asset Manager) third-party system is different. Anyway, we defined global concepts for the DAM:

  • DAM asset: This is the representation of the asset from the DAM. As it differs from one DAM third-party system to another, we cannot dive into its definition. We differentiate assets coming from a DAM third-party system and assets pushed into Akeneo PIM.
  • DAM property: A property is the pending side of an asset attribute but for a DAM asset.
  • DAM asset value: It's a data value of a property of a DAM asset.
