It actually shows a warning when we try to run a workflow on an empty folder in DAM, Is it possible to run after customizing OOTB functionality? Did anyone try it?

Note: We actually have a requirement to add a few metadata values to the metadata schema we defined for the folder's even when it is empty.

Thanks

Why do you need to customize it ? Go to workflow models and select the model and select the path of empty folder. It doesn't give warning.

Yes, we are able to do it from "Workflow Models"  but we are trying to start the workflow from side panel or create button in DAM.

Hi,

If you will run the workflow on empty folder, what would be the payload for workflow to process.

If there is nothing in folder then why to run workflow.

why don't you create a dummy assets and remove/deactivate once workflow completed.
