Is it possible to relate assets via metadata import

Avatar

Level 7

Hello Adobe Community,

 

I just wondered if it is possible to relate assets via the metadata import.

We imported all our data via bulk import and i would like to use the relate function to relate all my indesign files to the PDFs that were exported from the file.
Basicly all the files have similar names -
For example, the InDesign file would be named
- "articleID-123456-Flyer-210x297-2022-05-GER.indd" -this would be the source- and the PDF files have the exact same name but with different suffix.
"articleID-123456-Flyer-210x297-2022-05-GER-Print.pdf" and "articleID-123456-Flyer-210x297-2022-05-GER-web.pdf" related as derived from the InDesign file.

Now i would loooooove use the metadata export / import to add this relationship status with all my files in one go.
Any other Ideas are super welcome.

Question 1: is it possible?
Question 2: How

Have a nice day dear reader

Pretty much sure, that there is no such provision available OOTB. However, you can create a custom utility to deploy the above logic reading from similar CSV file as being uploaded for Bulk Metadata Import. 

But Bulk Metadata Import and Custom utility would work in separate threads.
