How to Use the Sharing Field

To share your entity with other companies within the portal using the Sharing Field, perform the following steps:

  1. Either create or edit a supported Shareable Entity.

    Note: In this example, we are showing a Seller Rule entity that controls the syndication rules of any videos that are assigned to it. All other entities (like Player Templates) allow you to control who will be able to view the entity itself.

  2. Click on the 'Sharing Field' (The field under the title SHARE WITH or RESTRICTIONS), and select the required sharing level from the drop-down list according to the following table:

    Important! The names of the companies displayed in the drop-down are dynamic according to the owning company setting of the entity. For example, if this Seller Rule is owned by an Affiliate company named "MiniBrand" that belongs to the "YourBrand" White label, then the names in each option will reflect the Affiliate and White Label levels accordingly:
    * MiniBrand Only
    * YourBrand & Affiliates



    Sharing Option Description White Label Example Affiliate Example
    "Owning Company" Only (default) Selecting this option will share the entity only with other users that belong to the same owning company as the entity If the entity is owned by YourBrand White Label, selecting this option will share the entity only with other users that are owned directly by the YourBrand White Label. If this Seller Rule is owned by the MiniBrand Affiliate, this option would display [MiniBrand Only] and share with other users under the MiniBrand Affiliate only.
    "Your White Label" & Affiliates Selecting this option will automatically share this entity with your White Label and all Affiliates.  If the entity is owned by YourBrand White Label, selecting this option will share the entity with YourBrand White Label itself and all of YourBrand White Label's Affiliates. If the entity is owned by the MiniBrand Affiliate, selecting this option will share the entity with the MiniBrand itself, its parent White Label and all of its Affiliate siblings.
    Selected Companies / Groups Selecting this option will open the Sharing Picker that allows you to perform more advanced syndication targeting selections.
