If you have been working on Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) long enough, you should have encountered a request from a customer to give them a report of all metadata for all (or some in a particular folder) assets.
Most of us (atleast me), have to either write some custom code, scripts and/or look for additional tools like Curly
But that will change, coming AEM 6.4, Adobe team introduced a new capability where we can export the metadata of Assets. This is a great addition and am loving it so far!
Quick summary on how to get the metadata export report:
- Login to AEM > Assets > Files (or go to http://localhost:4502/assets.html/content/dam )
2. Choose a folder > Pick the “Export Metadata” from the top menu
3. Enter the CSV filename and choose Export.
4. Wait for a few seconds and choose the Notifications on the top menu.
5. Download the CSV file.
6. Sample CSV / Report
Note: This is available only from AEM 6.4 and is NOT on previous versions.
