AEM 6.4 classic ui siteadmin assets drag & drop not working




in CQ5.6 it was possible to upload assets with drag & drop from the desktop directly in the siteadmin view


Now, with AEM 6.4 and the classic ui mode enabled it is not working anymore, the browser display the dragged asset

instead of uploading the file to the dam.

Is it a bug or i have to enable the drag & drop functionality?

Thank you for your help,

Thorsten Köhler

I can replicate the same issue on my end and we did open a JIRA as well. It seems in an earlier version of AEM 5.x, 6.0 and 6.1, it was working as a side effect.

The intent was to never allow drag and drop functionality through siteadmin. Just for your records, the internal reference for communication with Engineering was CQ-4197704.

This functionality is no longer available in the product.
