The Publish to Social Media feature allows authorized users to share video directly from the Evidence Detail page in Axon Evidence to social media websites. The Publish to Social Media feature currently supports publishing to YouTube and we expect to add additional social media platforms in future releases.
If your agency is interested in having the Publish to Social Media feature at your agency, contact your Axon representative.
See Social Media Publishing for information on enabling the Publish to Social Media feature once it is activated for your agency.
Refer to this article if you need to remove Axon Evidence access from your agency's YouTube account.
Publish to Social Media Permission
Users must have the Publish to Social Media permission enabled for their Role to publish content directly to approved social media platforms. The Publish to Social Media permission requires that the Unrestricted Evidence View permission is not set to Prohibited.
Agency Axon Evidence administrators should modify or create new Roles and enable the Publish to Social Media permission for the Roles.
Publishing to Social Media
Users with the Publish to Social Media permission can share videos to social media websites from the Evidence Detail Page.
Important: Before publishing, review the file to ensure that it meets your agency's standards for public release. Videos posted to YouTube are governed by the YouTube Terms of Service.
- From the Evidence Detail page in the Social Media Publishing section, click Publish.
The Publish to Social Media screen is shown on the right side of the page.
- Select the Social Media Platforms where you want to publish the video.
Note: you may need to connect to your agency’s social media account before publishing.
- Enter the Title, Description, and Tags as needed.
- Click Publish. The system asks the user to confirm the social media platforms where the video will be published.
When the video is published, the date the video was published and the user that published it is shown on the Evidence Detail Page. The evidence audit trail includes detail about this publication and a link to the external platform page where the where the video was made available.
