Upload, manage and manipulate files and images.




File management and abstraction is provided by the silverstripe/assets. This provides the basis for the storage of all non-static files and resources usable by a SilverStripe web application.

By default the SilverStripe\Assets\File has these characteristics:

  • A default permission model based on folder hierarchy.
  • Versioning of files, including the ability to draft modifications to files and subsequently publish them.
  • Physical protection of both unpublished and secured files, allowing restricted access as needed.
  • An abstract storage based on the flysystem library, which can be substituted for any other backend.
  • Can be embedded into any HTML field via shortcodes.
