DEFAULT is a special type of metadata set that is automatically associated with every single File Object when it is created, copied, uploaded, etc.

  • For already existing File Objects it will be associated when the file or folder is accessed for the first time.
  • Exactly one Default Set exists in FileCloud - it cannot be deleted, but administrators can customize attributes and permissions or disable it.
  • Out of the box it is shipped with a single predefined attribute of Array type - Tags.

(warning)  The DEFAULT metadata set can be disabled but it cannot be deleted.

The following attributes can be edited in the DEFAULT metadata set:
