Customizing the OOTB DAM update Asset workflow


Level 2

Hi Team, 


i've copied OOTB "DAM Update Asset" and "DAM Sub asset" workflow Models in to my codebase under custom path and implemented some pdf rasterizer custom steps. Also rename the workflow name, title and description. Once i deployed the changes through the code in my local i see the custom changes through crx/de but whenever i am opening the workflow models through workflow console it is showing me the expected both workflow OOTB and custom but not showing the custom steps as part of custom workflow and it is always show the OOTB steps in my custom workflow and it is taking the precedence and workflow setting from the OOTB. If i update anything in my custom workflow and the same is being reflecting in OOTB workflow. Has anyone experienced this issue. Any help is appreciated.  Thank You.

@kchaura , can you please share .content.xml for below paths

@sravs .content.xml  is the same as OOTB we just updated the workflow name update_asset f to update_asset_rasterizer and then later changed the title and description  as per the below.


Now we are directly updating the rasterizer steps in to OOTB  DAM Update Asset workflow under /conf and /var path instead of creating the another copy. As per the adobe documentation there will be no updates under /conf and /var folder  during the AEM upgrade process. Out-of-the-box workflow designs are held under the /libs/settings/workflow/models/ path. Let me know your throughs on this?
