How to search a Folder in DAM (AEM 6.3)

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

We have a huge number of folders in DAM, and larger number of assets in each folder. Is there any way I can search with folder title or name and get that folder as a result.

When I search for a folder, if there are any assets inside that folder i am getting all those assets as a result. But i don't need that i need the result as the folder.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Kishore.

you need a custom search, here are the query details:

type=sling:OrderedFolder

path=/content/dam

property=jcr:title

property.value=We.Retail

The corresponding XPath query would be

/jcr:root/content/dam//element(*, sling:OrderedFolder)

[

(@jcr:title = 'We.Retail')

]

This will return only the folders since we searched for type=sling:OrderedFolder only.

You can use the AEM QUeryBuilder API to perform custom searches.

Thanks for your replies. So we don't have any OOTB search rail or something to directly search the folders?
