While migrating content, evaluate whether you want to share assets across articles. For example, screenshots in a Photoshop article are usually not relevant to an Adobe Illustrator article. Rather than placing these assets in the DAM system, you can migrate them as file nodes under their respective document nodes.
Placing images under the document nodes preserves the parent-child relationship between the document and images. Additionally, this approach doesn't require a parallel directory structure in the DAM system, realizing the following benefits:
- When authors publish, unpublish, or delete a document, they do not need to perform the same operation on the corresponding assets in the DAM system.
- When authors add a new image or attachment, they don't need to move it to its correct place in the parallel DAM-system hierarchy.
