Recreate SharePoint image paths in AEM Assets

Avatar

Level 2

We are migrating our website from SharePoint to AEM Cloud. We also have some images hosted on SharePoint, that are used for other systems. We would like to recreate the same paths in AEM Assets, so these image will not break. Can I recreate the following path in AEM Assets? 

 

https://www.domainname.com/SiteCollectionImages/Folder/image.jpg?RenditionID=11 

The RenditionID parameter is used in SharePoint for rendering the image in a specific size. I know this is not working in AEM, but the link should still work with the parameter. The image will be saved in the dam with the correct size.

 

Would it work like this, when the image is published? /content/dam/company/SiteCollectionImages/Folder/image.jpg

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi @nika-ch 

   

There are multiple ways to bring the assets into the DAM. Below are the few options
1. https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-learn/cloud-service/migration/bulk-import... - Bulk Importer
2. https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-tools/features/csv-asset-importer/index.html  - CSV to asset importer
3. Custom Importer which gives more flexibility to create different rendition for your needs

 

Once you have it in dam, you can refer to the image's rendition with selector in the URL to get that image size

say for ex if you want 48x48 size you can get it like below

/content/dam/we-retail/en/activities/hiking/hiking_2.jpg/_jcr_content/renditions/cq5dam.thumbnail.48.48.png

 

or you can consider having Dynamic Media for assets which delivers the images/videos for the different form factors and many other wonderful features. But it requires a separate license for it.
