Enhance your AEM Assets & Boost Your Development: [AEM Gems | June 19, 2024] Improving the Developer Experience with New APIs and Events

Creating Live copies of mutiple assets


Level 2


Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Related case #E-000856273

Editor has to select one image --> create live copy.

Then select second image --> create live copy.

As there is no option for multi live copy option, this process needs to be followed individually for all the assets that needs live copies.

Current/Experienced Behavior: Separate live copy request for each and every image
Improved/Expected Behavior: Editors need to create Live copies of mutiple images in one click. It should work similar to creating Live copy of an entire folder. (Select folder --> create live copy). This copies all images from the source folder and creates live copies of images in live copy folder.

@DPrakashRaj Yes, currently we can either live copy an entire folder or a single asset. We cannot live copy mutiple assets within a single folder. That's the goal for the above feature request. 




@venkateshd Bulk-live-copy of assets works via folders, for assets today and in the future for content and experience fragments as well. Select folder, create live copy.

Hello @kautuk_sahni

The idea is to be able to select multiple assets and then 'create live copy'. Imagine having a folder with 10 assets, only 5 are approved for marketing and rest declined. If we want to make live copies of the 5 approved assets, we need to do this one by one. Or we need to live copy the entire folder and then delete the 5 declined.
