Unable to bulk edit sling:vanityPath property in Bulk Editor

Avatar

Level 1

Hi,

I'm trying to bulk edit sling:vanityPath property but with no luck.
Here is what I did:

  1. Navigate to : http://localhost:4502/etc/importers/bulkeditor.html
  2. Rootpath : /content/sitename/en_us/foldername
  3. Query Parameters : type:Page
  4. Content mode: check
  5. Property columns: Uncheck all
  6. Custom properties /columns : sling:vanityPath
  7. Click "Search" - I get 40 pages total, 10 of them without sling:vanityPath set.
  8. Click "Export", save "export.tsv"

Did not even try to edit file, just tried to import it back by doing following:

  1. Navigate to : http://localhost:4502/etc/importers/bulkeditor.html?hib=false
  2. All fields set the same as previously
  3. Click "Import", open "export.tsv"
  4. Got message "Imported 10/40 lines"

So it seems bulk editor does not import custom properties if they are set.
Could please someone help me with this?

If this is a tool limitation - is there any other 3-rd party tool/script for bulk updates?

Thanks is advance.

I have also experienced this before while editing a multi value property via Bulk editor.

I had to modify the bulk editor component to make it work in my case. I wrote steps in a blog post.

These steps are only for updating multi value String properties via the bulk editor console (for now). So exporting and then re-importing in tsv files with some changes will not work with this. But this can be a good starting point to extend this behaviour.
