I'm kind of confused about the site selector under Assets, because from what I can gather it actually doesn't do anything? See this screenshot, top left:

enter image description here

I was first under the impression that I would only see assets that have been uploaded for a specific site, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Every user seem to see all content for a volume, meaning I would have to create a volume per site in order to separate them?

Assets aren't technically multi-site, in that it's currently not possible to limit Volumes to specific Sites, and all uploaded Assets will be available across all Sites, regardless of which Site it was uploaded from.

Assets titles and custom fields can be translated, though. So the purpose of the Site selector in the Assets index is to have the titles and any custom field values render with a specific Site's translations.

  • Ah, then it makes sense. So to separate them per site I just create a Volume per site as well and I can restrict access via there. Thanks!
