Demande de résumé des améliorations des fonctionnalités (RFE) :

There was a functionality on AEM 6.3 that allowed users to copy an asset or a page, then refresh the page (go to another folder by modifying the URL on the browser) and then paste the asset or page to the destination folder.

This functionality has been removed on AEM 6.4 to avoid a copy/paste from a module to another one (Assets to Sites for example).

But it should still be available when you stay on the same module : copy/paste an asset in the module Assets.

Cas d’utilisation : Users used this functionality on 6.3 to avoid going through the whole folder hierarchy when they already know the destination path. It's time saving.
Comportement actuel/expérimenté :
  • Select an asset or a page
  • Click on “Copy”
  • In the same window, manually modify the browser URL to go to another folder to paste it

    To : https://{localhost}/assets.html/content/dam/us/2022/products/hr

    • The window will be refreshed and you’ll be located on the destination folder
    • The button “Paste” is NOT present

Hi @skith copy & paste of assets and pages is supported but only via browsing or navigating through the content tree. Modifying the URL loses the copied assets and pasting is no longer possible. Expanding the content tree may be the fastest way to accomplish this while preserving the ability to paste.
