Selective Assets Movement from Production to Lower environment

Avatar

Level 1

Hi All,

 

I have a requirement where I need to move 2600 assets from Production to lower environment  and after running some test I need to export these assets back to production. These assets are scattered in different sub-folders across dam. Please could you suggest some way to achieve this. I am using Aem 6.4.8.

 

Thanks,

Mahesh

you can create a package using filter, the list you can extract from prod and create a package in local with the filter of all the assets file, once done upload a package in prod and build. there you will have  the package and upload in lower env, once you are done with lower env changes then again build and upload & install in PROD.

You can use the Asset Ingestor or URL Asset Importer utility of ACS commons package.

Just make sure you press on the "BUILD" button and not "INSTALL" on prod

You can do this programmatically to save the effort.

 

1. Create a scheduler that you can run on your production author environment.

2. Create a query to run on the path specified to get your list of assets.

3. With the list of assets create a package programmatically using java code:

Packager Service:

packagerService.createPackage(packageName, groupName, filters, request);

 

Refer to an example here.

Hope this helps.
