iBase Trinity - digital asset management and multimedia online library
17. Asset requests
Organisations may wish to make some or all of their images or other assets available only to internal users, or perhaps also to external agencies who are doing work for them.
In these cases access to Trinity will be controlled by a mandatory login and password if it is available on the web, or if on an internal network (intranet) perhaps by validating users' normal network credentials without the need for them to sign in again. The LDAP protocol is a version of this.
In some circumstances, once a user's login credentials have been validated an organisation might permit download of high resolution versions of the images without a requirement for further authorisation. Alternatively images can be selected by the user in the normal way and an email request sent to an administrator for review and authorisation. On authorisation by the administrator an email is sent to the user with a download link URL, with which they can directly download the authorised images.
