@gdeshwal ,

If you are using ACS Commons. There are two solutions available for importing assets into AEM. I am not sure your exact use case. 
If you are importing from directory, you can use CSV Asset Importer. It need a csv file with asset and other information. Please check this below.

If you need to import using http, use this. You have to provide assets information .xlsx file. Please check which can be used for your use case. Please check compatibility of these utilities for AEM as a cloud.

@gdeshwal You have create this file as per your need. Please check the documentation link I shared. You have to add source and destination path and other metadata needed. Different system has different security layers. Not sure if you can get directly from source application. Check your source application. Or you can mount assets to any drive and then take from mounted drive. You have prepared xlsx accordingly.

Hi @gdeshwal  : This depends on from what all sources you are trying to migrate. There is also S3 asset ingestor tool where you would have to first migrate asests to S3 from all legacy source. https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/mcp-tools/asset-ingestion/s3-as... . You still need to account for metadata mapping manually additionally in all cases.

Agree to @digarg31 ,

I successfully used URL Asset Import for 3000K assets from mounted drive over http.
