Bulk rename asset titles

Avatar

Level 1

Hi, 

 

I need to be able to bulk rename dc:title on 5k+ assets. I cannot find an approach to do this (I have a spreadsheet with the assets with before and after titles). 

 

Thanks

Hi @LazyLibrarian1992,

 

You can achieve this using the  OOTB feature of Metadata Import and Export in AEM Assets. You can export the metadata first, modify the values as per your use case and upload the metadata.

Hi @LazyLibrarian1992,

Please use one of below options:

  1. Use OOTB export and import functionality, that allows to modify asset metadata in bulk, follow steps described in Adobe documentation:
    1. Export process: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/assets/using/metadata.html?lang=en#exp...
    2. Import process: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/assets/using/metadata.html?lang=en#imp...
  2. You can also create groovy script that base on some input will iterate over specific set of assets and edit certain metadata. However I think option one is much simpler and does not require any coding, I would suggest to try it first before you will start writing groovy script.
