Applying Workflows to Assets
Applying workflows to digital assets is the same as for website pages. For a complete guide on how to create and use workflows in AEM, see Starting Workflows .
Use workflows in digital assets to activate the asset or create watermarks. Many of the workflows for assets are automatically turned on. For example, the workflow that automatically creates a rendition after an image is edited is automatically turned on.
If a workflow available in Classic UI is not available in Touch-enabled UI, like Request to Activate and Request to Deactivate, see Make workflow models available in Touch UI .
