AEM 6.1 SP1 -- Not able to edit the Asset metadata schema.

Level 3
Level 3


I want to add few metadata fields to be visible and editable as properties of Asset in touch ui dam admin. In order to add some more metadata field I want to edit the Metadata schema for assets.

But i am not able to edit the default schemas on my AEM server which is Adobe Experience Manager, Version 6.1.0.SP1. Please see attached screenshot.

whereas i tried on another server where it is editable - Adobe Experience Manager, Version

Moreover i tried to overlay the schema from crx/de/index.jsp --> /apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms/default/image/jpeg/items/tabs/items/tab1/items/col1/items

where in I added one more text field ./dc:photographer , I am able to view that metadata but not able to edit and enter the value and it is throwing exception as -

"Asset(s) failed to Modify".

Could anyone please suggest the required settings / changes if i am missing something.

Thanks in advance
