AEM 6.3: Upload multiple renditions

Avatar

Level 2

Hello

At the moment the 'Add Rendition' file upload only works for 1 rendition at a time, my client asked me if it is possible to make it work for multiple renditions at a time.

I found the corresponding node under '/libs/dam/gui/content/assetdetails/jcr:content/actions/fileupload' and set the the multiple property to 'true'

The fileupload dialog now allows me to select multiple images but In the end it gives an error. If I for example select 2 images, only 1 of them get uploaded, I get a 500 response for the other:

What am I missing, how can I make this work?

Hi jeroend42683933

I just followed overlaying /libs/dam/gui/content/assetdetails/jcr:content/actions/fileupload to /apps/dam/gui/content/assetdetails/jcr:content/actions/fileupload and update multiple property to true. Its allowing me to select multiple but not upload.

After investigation I don;t see any servlet submission when uploading the asset rendition

Looks like sling:resourceType property is granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/fileupload

This granite widget can upload only one item (rendition). I think you need a custom widget to handle multiple renditions.

Hope this helps

I have asked internal expert to have a look at this.

I guess the Servlet on the backed is programmed to handle only 1 asset per request.

If you want to upload Assets in a batch operation - you can build a custom Sling Servlet that uses the Asset Manager API. Each Asset that is uploaded will have its own renditions as a result of using the Asset Manager API.

"The CQ5 Quickstart and Web Application."

We have a demo tool that does this. It uses a Java client that reads an XML file that describes where the assets are located and posts each file to the Servlet.

So if for example have hundreds of files in a folder - this works well

Where or how can I find the current servlet that handles the 'add rendition' functionality? The weird things is that the post to the rendition endpoint is executed twice (one of those returns a 200 the other one a 500) which makes me think that the servlet is only handling one file at a time but something else is going wrong, I see this in my error.log:

What does this tell me?

Apparently the coral-fileupload element has an async attribute:

<coral-fileupload

class="betty-ActionBar-item coral-Form-field cq-damadmin-admin-actions-rendition-upload-activator coral3-FileUpload"

name="will_be_replaced" multiple="" sizelimit="10485760"

action="/content/dam/jeroen/de_mol.png/_jcr_content/renditions?_charset_=utf-8" async=""

data-foundation-validation="" data-validation="" role="group" style="position: relative;" aria-disabled="false"

aria-invalid="false" aria-readonly="false">

</coral-fileupload>

If I set the attribute to 'false' it still does not work :S

THis is why you can look at writing a custom tool that can upload assets to AEM via Servlet that uses the AssetManager API. The Coral FileUploader seems to only handle one at a time.
