Default & Enforced Keywords

By default, keywords are available when creating or editing any of these content types, and the Select Keywords option displays to authors in the Standard Properties dialog.

Enforced keywords are non-modifiable terms associated with every object for which they are defined.

Default keywords display to authors as modifiable entries in the Select Keywords dialog during file creation, upload, or editing. Define the set of keywords authors and editors are most likely to use, to save time during page creation and to establish a consistent classification structure.
