How do I embed galleries using Metadata?

Galleries can be embedded as part of a page or opened in a popup when on click of an object/element.

Embed a gallery on a page

  1. Set the size and position of the gallery at the exact spot on the page and create a new hyperlink.
  2. Paste the below metadata in the hyperlink:
    Metadata format: rpc://assets/galleries/[GALLERY_ASSET_ID]
    Example: rpc://assets/galleries/anByd
    "anByd" is a unique ID for each asset in the Publisher.

Open a gallery in a popup on click of an object/ element

  1. Define a clickable area, like an icon/ graphical object/ text on the page.
  2. Create a new hyperlink in InDesign and paste the below metadata:
    Metadata format: rpc://tags/galleries/[GALLERY_ASSET_ID]?target=[POPUP_ID]&icon=[ICON_TYPE]
    Example: rpc://tags/galleries/anByd?target=skarstadview&icon=default


  • Only the existing galleries in the Publisher must be added.
  • Remove the square brackets [ ] in the metadata format.
  • The "target" points to the "POPUP_ID" in which the gallery should be opened. In the above example, the "POPUP_ID" is "skarstadview". For details, read more on... Metadata - Popup.
