Unable to upload asset to AEM using aem-upload github tool

Avatar

Level 2

I am using the aem-upload tool to upload an asset to an AEM instance. The documentation says "all AEM as a Cloud Service instances will have direct binary upload enabled, so this library will work with those."

But, I get the following error. 

 

Error: direct binary access not supported

admin/admin doesnt work on Cloud Service environments. 

 

You need to make a local account in your AEM as a Cloud Service author env under Tools > Security > Users  and make sure it's permissioned to write to the specified assets folder.

@davidjgonzalezzI am using the script given in the example:

 

https://github.com/adobe/aem-upload#uploading-files

 

My target URL is 'http://localhost:4502/content/dam/';

 

Also, I am using the .withBasicAuth('admin:admin') option to authenticate.

This is because you are trying to use the tool to upload to a local quickstart-based AEM (the AEM SDK presumably).

 

This tool must be run against a true AEM as a Cloud Service environment (that runs in the Adobe Cloud).

I have tried that against an author AEM as a Cloud Service Environment but getting "ENOTAUTHORIZED" error.

I am an admin - any idea what else I am missing?

Thank you. It worked. I made sure the user has the correct write permissions (for example: rep:write on /content/dam) or my user needs to be a part of DAM Users Group.
