    Updating record using AXF in Metadata dropfolder

    Hi Forum,  I'm a newbie to Avid MAM and I've been trying to update assets using AXF files via the dropfolder.   When I submit the AXF using the MAM Desktop "Import AXF" it updates the asset as expected. When dropped into the watchfolder it creates a new asset with a new GUID,  ignoring the GUID in the AXF file.

    Also,  is there a way to add locators (makers) in the AXF ?

    Two question,  any help will be much appreciated.

    As simple example AXF

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>

    <!-- Simply change the comment and drop into WatchFolder\WatchServiceMamImport\WatchFolder\VIDEO\METADATA -->

    <AXFRoot>

      <MAObject type="default" mdclass="VIDEO">

        <GUID dmname="">201805270958141192168254064005056B4416A0000013292B00000D0D000024</GUID>

        <Meta name="COMMENT" format="string">Running AXF UpDateMeta from watchfolder</Meta>

       </MAObject>

    </AXFRoot>

    Re: Updating record using AXF in Metadata dropfolder

    Hi,

    the import process uses the EXTERNAL_ID attribute to identify the asset.

    So for example if you modify your AXF slightly so that it looks like this:

    <AXFRoot>

      <MAObject type="default" mdclass="VIDEO">

        <GUID dmname="">201805270958141192168254064005056B4416A0000013292B00000D0D000024</GUID>

        <Meta name="COMMENT" format="string">Running AXF UpDateMeta from watchfolder</Meta>

        <Meta name="EXTERNAL_ID" format="string">MyGreatAsset</Meta>

       </MAObject>

     

    </AXFRoot>

    You can use it to update your asset.

    If there is no EXTERNAL_ID present the import uses the Filename (including extension) as EXTERNAL_ID for the created asset.

    Julius,

    Can I also inject locator/markers at the same time as the registration ?
