Setting the access to content for subscription plans


As you set up a subscription plan, you must specify what content or content types are available to your subscribers. There are two types of access you can set up: Individual Content Access or Tagged Content Access.

  • Individual Content Access—This option requires that you select specific assets that have been previously created within Brightspot to be available to subscribers of this subscription plan.
  • Tagged Content Access—This option requires that you select from a variety of filters to determine which content is available to subscribers of this subscription plan.

  1. Click the Accesses Search field and select Individual Content Access.
  2. Under Content, click add_circle_outline to select the assets that you want to put behind the paywall for this subscription plan.
  3. In the search window that appears, select the individual assets that require this subscription plan in order to view.
