Adding Metadata to Files

Adding Metadata to Files

I'm trying to find info that clarifies how to set metadata for a file...not just metadata, but also to configure the fields for a file to capture that metadata.

I found this link which talks about the API...

But it seems to suggest the APIs are used if you want to write applications that interact with Egnyte. Is there built in functionality for Web UI though that allows an admin to configure the metadata namespaces and keys? Is the only way to configure the metadata fields through the API calls? That doesn't seem right but I can't find any documentation or obvious settings in the admin panel.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

You can see the feature in  "Settings"-> "Configuration" -> "Metadata". 

Let me know your feedback - if you have any ideas or find any issues

I added a metadata field called photo tags and then tagged a bunch  of photos in the metadata section. But when I do  search for files and add metadata search criteria, the files aren't showing up.
