Hi Team,

We migrated assets from Microsoft azure to AEM as a cloud instance using the bulk import feature. The assets are populated in AEM but the folder structure and asset names are modified by AEM in processing while upload. Apart from the general rules such as replacing special character and space with encoding and underscore, there are a lot of additional manipulation which we are not able to generalize. For eg. path of the azure asset "version_sent_to_abc_with_stamp" is converted in AEM as "version_sent_toabcwithdate_stamp". The problem with this modification is that the metadata import for assets is reporting failure (Failed to import metadata. Error[Asset not found]) wherever there is mismatch in asset path and name and we have to manually correct these paths in our metadata sheet before using the metadata import.

Is there any solution to handle this or automated way to correct the asset paths as we are dealing with very high number of assets?

Thanks,

Manpreet

This is what you can try:

1. Upload assets to AEM (already done in your case).

2. Do a bulk metadata export of the root folder containing all the assets. Process described here:  https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-64/assets/administer/metadata-import-expo... 

3. This will generate a CSV file containing the "assetpath" column. 

4. Work in excel file to correct the metadata of your assets and re-upload the file to import metadata and correct the gaps (process available in point 2).

5. Publish the assets.
