Cloudinary operation modes

Jump to this spot in the video  0:00 In Cloudinary Asset Management Configurations, choose your operation mode to determine how products are associated with their media assets. This tutorial describes two of the three modes:

  • Option 1 - Map assets to their products using tags and metadata.
  • Option 2 - Map assets to their products from data in the Salesforce Commerce Cloud catalog.

Option 1 - Mapping assets to products using tags and metadata

Jump to this spot in the video  0:41 It is important that all assets have the correct product tags and metadata when stored in Cloudinary. You can create the metadata fields required by the site cartridge by logging into your Cloudinary account and navigating to Settings > Manage Structured Metadata. The tags and metadata that are applied to the assets associate the assets with the relevant products and determine where they are shown on your storefront.

Option 2 - Mapping assets to products using view types in the catalog

Jump to this spot in the video  4:22 In this option, when the job is run to sync assets from the Salesforce Commerce Cloud into Cloudinary, assets are stored in Cloudinary at a location that is determined by the folder path of the view type in SFCC. The cartridge builds the media URLs based on the view type folder path and transformations configured in the custom preferences. It is generally only required to store the image with the highest resolution in Cloudinary (e.g., view type = "large"), and create all the other sizes using transformations.
