Version history screen

Whenever a user updates a Matrix asset, Matrix takes a version snapshot of the asset.

Read Understanding the data available for what Matrix stores in the version snapshot and View an asset’s version history for instructions about how to access the feature.

Asset version snapshot data is retained indefinitely.

Understanding the data available

The version snapshot contains the following core version history data, displayed in expandable groups in the interface:

  • Standard fields

  • Attributes

  • Content

  • Metadata.

Asset version history screen with the content group expanded

Additional data that falls outside core version history data is displayed in raw data format in the Other section.

View an asset’s version history

Asset history is available on any Matrix asset type you have permission to access.

To access and view the version history of an asset:

  1. Right-click on any asset and select Version History.

  2. Click the version history revisions snapshots to view the changes made between versions.

  3. Collapse or expand the core categories to display only the information you need to view about the asset.

  4. Review the raw data returned in the Other category for lower-level changes made to the asset over time.
