Adding assets

Assets are files that are uploaded in an Opendatasoft domain in order to be usable throughout that same domain (for example, in the domain stylesheet, in content pages, etc.). Either images or font files can be added as assets in the domain.

This feature is available in the Assets section of the back office of an Opendatasoft domain.
