Content URL behavior
Brightspot automatically generates URL permalinks for assets you create. Below is an explainer about how this behavior works.
By default, assets created in Brightspot get an auto-created permalink URL based on these rules:
- For assets that have a URL Slug field (like Article or Listicle, for example), this will be read first in order to create the URL.
- For assets without a URL Slug field (like Page or Tag), the URL will be automatically generated from the asset’s primary field (like Display Name).
Sections affect URLs a little differently.
- If no section is added to an asset, the end of the URL is
- If you assign a section to an asset, the URL is
You can create a section hierarchy, in which one section is the parent of another. The below example illustrates how this affects URLs.
Create section 1.
Create section 2, and assign section 1 as its parent.
Create section 3, and assign section 2 as its parent.
If you add the section at any point in the asset’s workflow before publishing, it will change the auto-generated URL; however, once you publish the asset, this will not happen, and it will retain the URL path that was already generated for it.
