Methods Signature


Returns the update counter of the asset.

Methods Definition


Returns the update counter of the asset. The update counter is incremented whenever an asset is updated because one of its references to other assets is updated to a newer version of the referenced asset. This does not lead to a newer repository version of the asset itself because the asset definition isn’t changed. Therefore the version identifier stays the same, just the update counter changes.

The update counter is 0 for the asset which exacly matches the original version (returned by AssetDescriptionInterface.Load() when it is called with a None argument).
