We are working on a project and there is one specific requirement.
Requirement : A huge amount of asset has to be imported in the dam repository from existing asset management system to CQ5 DAM. There are few challenges as mentioned below.
1. Large number of metadata list.
Question : Can we automate the process of creating custom metadata in the repository ?
2. The metadata for assets are stored separately from the asset. So we need to take care of importing/uploading assets along with the metadata for each asset.
Question : How can we achieve above requirement. Uploading of asset and uploading of metadata corresponding to the asset.
Thanks in Advance.
There are couple of ways to achieve it. One is using workflow.
You can create a custom metadata for asset type. Create a workflow step (External one) to retrieve metadata for assets that are stored separately & updates in our repository.
Regarding 2nd point . You can write a custom scheduler (if you want to make 100% automated) or servlet which can read the metadata and based on the image name it uploads image to the cq dam.
