I need to know if a uploaded media item is versionable uploaded or not? But I can't find a property on the Imagefield or MediaItem itself where I can see if the media item was uploaded versionable.

 var imageField = (ImageField)item.Fields[imageFieldId];
 imageField.MediaItem. ?
  • Maybe this will work: var imageField = (ImageField)item.Fields[imageFieldId]; var isMediaItemShared = MainUtil.GetBool(imageField.MediaItem.Fields["Blob"].InnerItem["Shared"], false); – Marek Musielak Sep 11 '19 at 14:05
  • @MarekMusielak No its not returning the right value if shared – squadwuschel Sep 11 '19 at 14:32

    I've tested it and it does work for me. I uploaded one image as versioned and another as not versioned and it does show correct values for both. – Marek Musielak Sep 11 '19 at 14:55
  • Meh. versioned = imageField.MediaItem.Template.Parent.Name.Equals("Versioned"); And I don't care if it's illogical; Sitecore has all fields marked "Shared" in the Unversioned folder - as opposed to... Unversioned ;-) – Mark Cassidy Sep 11 '19 at 21:18

Does not look like an elegant solution but this might work. There are Versioned and Unversioned template folders under /sitecore/templates/System/Media path. You may try to look if your media item template belongs to one of these folders, smth like this:

if (imageField.MediaItem.Template.InnerItem.Paths.FullPath.StartsWith(
    // versioned

  • That was going to be my recommendation - although I would say use the Template ID's vs the path. – Richard Seal Sep 11 '19 at 14:50

    Might be a bit tricky since each folder contains 12 templates OOTB... But in case one does not need to deal with 'Flash', 'MP3' and other strange stuff, template IDs can be preferable. – Serhii Shushliapin Sep 11 '19 at 14:56

    Stop it with the ID over path nonsense :joy: – Mark Cassidy Sep 11 '19 at 21:16
  • You can check if the template inherits from /sitecore/templates/System/Media/Versioned/File, all the versioned templates inherit from this one. – jammykam Sep 11 '19 at 21:21
