Previewing RAS asset manifest files

You can preview the contents of each RAS asset manifest file before deciding to import the asset. The RAS asset manifest file includes documentation that the RAS asset producer has provided to describe the asset. In addition, you can see the details of the contents of the RAS asset.

Before you begin

The following RAS asset details are included in the manifest file:
  • Description, author, keywords, and profile type.
  • Required activities that execute on a particular artifact (file).
  • A summary of all files contained in the asset.
  • Any pattern assets the RAS asset contains.

About this task

To view a RAS asset manifest file, in the Asset Explorer view, right-click an asset and click View > Documentation.


A preview of the asset manifest file contents opens in HTML format in your default Web browser.
