When we upload an Asset, the OOTB DAM Update Asset workflow gets triggered automatically. But, i need to trigger my custom workflow instead of the OOTB workflow. Which paths/js files do i have to update to get the required results? Thanks!

The workflows are started through the workflow launcher configurations

Disable the launcher starting(launchers configured for creating and updating nodes) the OOTB workflow and create a new launcher to start the custom workflow.

Disable the existing DAM Update Asset workflow and add use your custom workflow.

NOTE: On disabling the exiting OOTB workflow you are totally making it applicable throughout your AEM instance.  Make sure you custom workflow handles that smartly.

Hi @Shaheena_Sk , 

You can achieve this by disabling the DAM update workflow from launcher console.

Disabling the DAM update workflow will have a global impact on assets which will upload on DAM. If your custom implementation cover the functionally you can go ahead and disable it. 

  • Navigate to Tools->workflow->launchers

http://localhost:4502/libs/cq/workflow/admin/console/content/launchers.html.

  • Select the DAM Update Asset workflow
  • Open the properties and select disable
