I was wondering if planet asset activations are linked/bundled or synchronous for item types so for example If I use --activate PSOrthoTile analytic, does it automatically activate analytic_xml and also analytic_dn? or would I have to run --activate PSOrthoTile analytic_xml and --activate PSOrthoTile analytic_dn separately?
There are related assets that get activated simultaneously with a single request. Typically this is the GeoTIFF and the XML but there are a few others.
Notably, the DN and analytic are not related, and it would take two requests to activate these.
You can always check the API responses and see which assets change status to
activating after a single activation request.
