How to share an asset without inviting user to the channel

This article explains how you can securely share your asset with someone without having to invite them to your channel or giving them access to other assets on your tube.

Note: The option to share via Secure Link will only show up if the channel is private. If the channel is public, then you can only share it using the regular link. If the channel is not set as public and the ‘Private’ checkbox is not checked, then it will inherit the workspace privacy. If the workspace is set as private then the channel will also be treated as a private channel and the option to share via secure link will appear. For example, a workspace is public but you create a channel with the “private” privacy setting (as shown below) and you don’t add the “public” user in the users, then the secure share will be visible because the channel is private even though the workspace is public.

  1. Navigate to the channel and click on the asset you would like to share.
  2. Click on the Share option as shown below.

    1. On the window that pops up, click on the Copy button under Secure link to copy the secure link for sharing the asset.
      You can also select the checkbox ‘Add an expiration date for the link‘ checkbox to set an expiration date for the link so it stops working after the set date.
      If you would also like to give users access to the entire channel, you can select the ‘Allow access to the entire channel‘ checkbox. When you copy the secure link and share it, user will be able to access the entire channel.

      When a user opens the secure link in their browser, they will be able to access the asset that you shared even though they are not listed as a user under the private channel.

      On the other hand, if you share the asset with the user using the regular share link they will be asked to login to the channel to access the asset as shown below.
