Hi Experts,

 

I understand that there is a provision to rename Folders through 'Properties' but it doesn't actually change the node name when I observe in JCR and there is no provision to rename Assets. We are now trying to customize AEM to give users a provision to easily rename folders and files (assets) which also renames node names. 

 

Renaming folders and files is a common use-case and wondering why Adobe haven't addressed this! Are there any under-the-hood technical issues that we are potentially overlooking in implementing this requirement ?

 

Thanks.

Rename operations isn't straight forward in AEM.

However, you can rename both node name and title by using Move operation, described here: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/how-to/move-rename-copy-assets.html
