Hi Gary, I'm not sure why you would need 2 steps if you were using Desktop App v1 on the machine running Capture One. Instead of saving to a network drive, the user operating Capture One could save directly to AEM (which would appear as a Network Drive when they Save As within Capture One). If there is some reason this wouldn't work, then I think I'd look at a hot-folder style solution. Basically, have some simple script that runs every few minutes to look for new files in a certain folder (on t...

Hi Gary, Desktop App v1 uses WebDAV to map the DAM as a network drive to allow upload from any system that can access Finder for Mac or Explorer for Windows machines. Should work for any desktop software including Capture One. Desktop App v2 will not support your use case. You have to poke around to get to Desktop App v1 from the Adobe download site, but last I checked it was still available and there are no plans to end-of-life v1 at present--just no ongoing development with that paradigm. Hope...

Hi Rohit, This should be possible with FFMPEG. You may need to add a specific step to the Update Asset Workflow for this piece. You can practice the syntax via the command line interface for FFMPEG until it give you the desired output and then put into the AEM workflow step to try to isolate which system is giving you problems. I've also found it helpful to create a one-step workflow when trying to find the syntax--you can run it against your payload a lot faster than the full Update Asset workf...

Hi Gary, Agree with the previous answer that unpublish is better, but since you're only using the Brand Portal rather than AEM Sites, the impacts of straight deletion are less serious. (The TTL situation I believe only applies to AEM Sites with a dispatcher and/or CDN caching layer in front of it). Basically, the only impact of a straight delete on the Brand Portal is that the author instance (i.e the DAM) will still show those assets as published to the Brand Portal. The deletion on the Brand P...

Hi Satish, When we've connected to third-party CMS systems, we've used Dynamic Media for asset delivery (presuming you need imagery, videos, 3D files, and/or PDFs--for other file types, you'd have to use a publish instance for delivery). Vignette should be able to leverage imagery and other supported assets via a Dynamic Media URL with a bit of customization on that side. In order to determine which assets are needed by Vignette, it depends on how automated the content creation process is within...

Are you working in XML for Document Management add on to AEM Assets? It sounds as if that may be the case.

It sounds as if you've worked with Azure AD support, so I may be mistaken in this suggestion, but if not, it might be a quick fix. I believe that Azure AD has a configuration in either the application or the claim that allows you to specify which groups would be included the group claim. Presuming you have fewer than 150 AEM-relevant groups, if that configuration exists, you should be able to have Azure AD in effect filter the group claim to only specific groups that are relevant. I may be think...

Good question and unfortunately, the answer is "not exactly." Your issue is an ongoing governance issue as new Company folders are added. The other solution provided will work as a one-time fix, but if you wanted to manage permissions every time a new Company folder was created you could do so through the normal /useradmin interface--there's no special benefit to directly editing the rep:policy node. When we've had situations like this, we've found the best solution is normally to make the Compa...

I believe this is expected behavior. Folders do not support timelines--only assets. You're on a very old version of AEM, but I don't believe that situation changes in more recent versions. The timeline of published assets (with a folder that is published) is available. Hope this helps,Beau

Hi Prince, I'm sorry for slow reply to your comment--community platform didn't notify me.

We've customized to this requirement before, but unfortunately, it's been a while and I can't recall the precise mechanism we took. If my vague memory is correct, we had users access the "crop-as-new-image" function via a small custom workflow (accessed via a custom menu button) that leveraged the same UI as the out-of-the-box crop, but since we'd forked that OTB code, we could take a different result. I would say that crops in the AEM tool are almost never the right way for users to handle crop...

Hi Mario, What you're talking about is similar to what I'd call an Asset Type metadata concept and it's pretty common--our clients would very commonly have a tag structure under an Asset Type namespace that would include several types of photography (e.g. lifestyle, product, executive headshots), collateral (e.g. brochures, sales sheets, white papers), advertisements (e.g. banner ads), and so forth. Your focus on the appropriate distribution channel is another concept that is less commonly used,...

This is really a question for Adobe rather than the community, but my understanding is that the AEM as a Cloud Service is functionally very similar to the latest 6.5 release of AEM. So it's not as if there's a 6.6 version that is only available in the Cloud Service paradigm and all of the AMS or on premises customers won't get the latest and greatest functionality until they migrate. AEM as a Cloud Service does have some beneficial differences from the current AEM paradigm--but mostly on scalabi...

Hi Prince, Presume you mean you're having issues permanently adjusting the order or assets (rather than just sorting). If you can't reorder permanently, you may want to confirm that the folder is created as an orderable folder (see folder properties). If you're having issues on the very top-level folder of /content/dam, I think there is no way to make this an orderable folder without adjusting in the JCR (i.e. at http://localhost:4502/crx/de). If you don't want to permanently adjust the folder p...

This isn't an OTB functionality, but I wouldn't imagine it would be a tremendously hard customization. If you really wanted to keep your effort minimal and keep the user experience close to the OTB Review Task, you could look into adjusting the Render Condition for "Create Review Task" button. I think the issue would be that the workflow expects a folder or a collection as a payload, so you'd probably need to figure out how to make your single asset wrapped in a temporary collection OR adjust th...

If I understand your question, you're not having issues with implementing the type-ahead, but maintaining the functionality after a manual edit in the metadata schema WYSIWYG editor. If that's the case, then that's a tradeoff we've encountered and decided to live with. The revision of custom metadata types is something we've also observed and seems to apply whenever you make customization to OTB metadata. The options we've considered are as follows:Never customize metadata to maintain the WYSIWY...

This information should be in your metadata export. Don't have ready access to 6.4 instance at moment, but I believe the answer is the same on 6.5. I think the problem is that the some of replication metadata is not on the metadata node, so it isn't included in your CSV. Not sure if you what replication queues you have configured. Portal and Sites replication information will be at the jcr:content node rather than the jcr:content/metadata node. If you have Dynamic Media connected, this informati...

The problem is that color space metadata isn't stored in a consistent place by file type or creating application. There's no way that I'm aware of OTB to pull this information within AEM. You'd have to add a custom media handler in a custom WF step on Update Asset WF and find a library that will identify color space.

This is a good question. I can share approach on which we coach our clients--may or may not apply depending on how your INDD file is created and whether you have easy access to Asset Link v1.1 or Desktop App v1. 1) When you're creating the INDD links, you should use Asset Link v1.1 (earlier versions of Asset Link didn't do deep linking, so it wouldn't help your use case) or Desktop App v1. (For various reasons, Desktop App v2 doesn't support this use case.) The point is that you want the INDD bi...
