Extract Metadata From DAM assets


Level 4

Hi All,

I have total of over 16,000 items (catalog page, images, videos, technical information, misc) in the AEM DAM.
Can anyone help me with some script or way, that will tell:
-Date when the items was created
-where the page is being rendered
-is the item active
-when it was last modified
-where it's located in the dam

We are putting a list together, trying to find , is all assets in the DAM still being used, and then cleaning those that are not.

You can write app logic using the JCR API to do most of this. All assets in the DAM are just nodes and contain properties. You can use the JCR API to read those assets and get the information that you are seeking. I will look around to see if we have a good example of using this API to search DAM assets.
