SOLVED

AEM Listeners & Events

How can I capture the asset that triggered a listener in to a variable.

 

In my application:

When a new asset is uploaded to a folder I want to

move it to a different folder.

 

Is there a way to acquire the path or the asset that triggers the event?

I know I can invoke a workflow/use workflow launcher in conjunction with a workflow but I want to do it using the

listener approach.

 

Thanks!

" I'm trying to get is the Asset "

Look at using this API:

http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/javadoc/com/day/cq/dam/commons/handler/AbstractAssetHandler.h...

It's the AEM Asset Handler API. We have a community article that shows how to use this API:

This article's use case is to track assets uploaded to the AEM DAM. It will show you how to get up and running with AssetHandler.

You can.. when you upload an asset, essentially a node will be created. so you can use the node_added listener and do the action. refer [1]

I understand that, but what I'm trying to get is the Asset that invoked the listener to begin with. I need to capture that into a variable

Maybe a node variable or maybe an Asset variable.

 

Thanks.

You can get the path of the event and fro the path you can get asset details

when you write an eventlistner and override onEvent(EventIterator itr)

from the EventIterator, get the event and then the path of the event

Check these APIs for the reference
