Collection are not working with files accessed from DAM via AdobeDrive

I've tried to use "Collection" in Bridge to store some "favorites" assets from my repository.

This repository is managed by AEM 5.6.1 and mounted on the desktop by AdobeDrive.

If i'm able to place local files in the collection, the files from the repository aren't allowed...


In the other hand, in AEM, via the WebBrowser you are able to select several files and gather them in a "Collection" and share it to make it visible to other dam_users...

But this collection is not shown or accessible by Bridge neither....


This happen on Mac an PC

    A collection does not contain any images, it is just a collection of addresses so program can find pictures.  Not sure but it probably does not work across drives, because Bridge search does not either.

    Maybe you can drop this problem in the dedicated Adobe Drive forum?



    this is a very specialistic matter you are describing and not may users (if at all) here have access to the Adobe Drive that is not part of the Creative Cloud package subscription.


    It seems like you are using a very sophisticated network with both Mac and PC.


    I also had to look up AEM that seems Adobe Experience Manager. Also a very specialized application.


    While Adobe claims a seamless integration of CC with Adobe Drive, Bridge itself is not designed (nor supported) for use over a network. Collections are by default aliases of the originals and stored on user based libraries. They should be able to read form different drives and even networks (with great care) but sharing a collection is to my knowledge only possible by manual distributing the collection file saved on the creators computer. Not sure if other stations could use this same file without problems but in theory they should provide the path to the originals, but that is theory...

    Not enough of a techie to say how the collection works, but my assumption is that it does a search for addresses.  So if you have your pictures on drive F the search will not go beyond drive F.  Adobe Drive would a drive ???
