Reading meta tag values of an asset

Avatar

Not applicable

Hi,

   I am trying to read all meta tag values added to an asset.I used the following code snippet to read

    1.Reading  tags by the following method

       asset.getMetadatavalue("cq:tags")

    2. Having an array of shorthand tag ids added. 

    3. Used the for loop to iterate over tag ids and used "resolve" method to get the tag object.

        tagManager = resolver.adaptTo(TagManager.class);
        Tag custTag = tagManager.resolve(t1);

    4. When trying to read its values,it is breaking out from the second tag onward. Getting proper values for the first tag and null values for the second one

         custTag.getName();custTag.getPath();

   5. Length of a tag array is coming properly.

 

Could you please help me on this

 

Regards,

Kirithi

// Getting the tags of a Resource:
Tag[] tags = tagManager.getTags(resource);
 
// Setting tags to a Resource:
tagManager.setTags(resource, tags);

Hi,

The reason might be tags aren't available in current instance. 
Tag custTag = tagManager.resolve(t1);
The TagManager will return null value when the tag is not available.
Steps to fix this:
1. Check whether the tags which are stored in the asset properties are available in tagging console or not . (current instance)
2. If they are not available,please activate the tags from author instance. 

This mighe be the solution.

Hi,

    Please find below the code snippet

 

String tagStr = aseetStr.getMetadataValue("cq:tags"); tagArray = tagStr.split(","); for(String t1:tagArray) { LOGGER.info("<<<<<tagArray length>>>>>>"+t1); tagManager = resolver.adaptTo(TagManager.class); Tag custTag = tagManager.resolve(t1); LOGGER.info("Tag Title---->>>>"+custTag.getTitle()); }

   Able to access tag values up to one level irrespective of number of tags have been added.

Thanks!

Hi,

    I followed the above approach but length of tag is not coming properly.

    It is returning zero.

    So I directly accessed through its property

   

String tagStr = aseetStr.getMetadataValue("cq:tags");

 

   Thanks!

No Worries, Please use below code to get things done. Its workings in my AEM.

<%@include file="/libs/foundation/global.jsp"%> <jsp:directive.page import="com.day.cq.dam.api.Asset, com.day.cq.tagging.TagManager,com.day.cq.tagging.Tag " /> <% try { Resource r = resourceResolver.getResource("/content/dam/geometrixx/drm/with-drm.jpg"); Asset asset = r.adaptTo(Asset.class); String title; Object[] titleArray = null; Object titleObj = asset.getMetadata("cq:tags"); if (titleObj instanceof Object[]) { titleArray = (Object[]) titleObj; } for(Object ob:titleArray) { String a = ob.toString() ; TagManager tagManager=null; tagManager = resourceResolver.adaptTo(TagManager.class); Tag custTag = tagManager.resolve(a); out.print(custTag.getTitle()); } } catch(Exception e) { } %>

For testing purpose I wrote this in JSP its recommended to write this in Java class.

Let me know how it goes

Hi Kirithi,

here is some code I wrote in Fiddler (part of ACS commons) to extract the tags for an asset.

Regards,

Opkar

<%@include file="/libs/foundation/global.jsp"%><%
%><%@page session="false" contentType="text/html; charset=utf-8" 
    pageEncoding="UTF-8"
    import="org.apache.sling.api.resource.*,
    org.apache.sling.jcr.resource.*,
    com.day.cq.dam.api.*,
    java.util.*,
    javax.jcr.*,
    com.day.cq.search.*,
    com.day.cq.wcm.api.*,
    com.day.cq.dam.api.*,
    com.day.cq.dam.api.metadata.*"%><%

    // Code here
    String resourcePath = "/content/dam/geometrixx/portraits/scott_reynolds.jpg";
    Resource res = resourceResolver.getResource(resourcePath);
    Asset asset = res.adaptTo(Asset.class);

    Map<String, Object> assetMap = asset.getMetadata();
    Object[] obj = (Object[])asset.getMetadata("cq:tags");
    
    for(int x=0;x<obj.length;x++){
    %>
    <br>
    <%
        out.println(obj[x]);
    }
%>

Hi Kirithi,

Thanks for confirmation of code, 

I feel couple of reason for not working of code as getMetadataValue(String name) return string but if you see Dam jcr screenshot their property is stored as String[].

This is one helpful link I found : http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/dam/customizing_and_extendingcq5dam.html

Please see screenshots
