We have a request for some changes to the Adobe CC and Sitecore connector.We would like to be able to search using facets. I have tried to illustrate this with the screenshots below.
This is how we can search at the moment. Using classifications and nothing else:
This is how we need to be able to search using the facets we have configured in our system:
This is a critical need for us, because without this search it is very hard for our users to find the correct assets and do their work in a efficient manner. They are browsing through hundreds or thousands of images to find the one they need for their work.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
Would it be possible to add a close endpoint for an autoclose task? This would be very useful in the following situation:
In many cases, a task in a workflow may depend upon input from a user in the preceding task. For example, a user has a dropdown list on a task, and depending on the value he chooses for the extended attribute, another output port is chosen, and the following user receives a different task. In some cases however, we need to do an integration callout to make a few changes in the system before the next user receives his task. For example, we may need to change the system type of an attachment, or make classifications in the DAM. Since it is absolutely necessary that these changes have happened before the next user receives his task, we cannot do the callout "on close" of the preceding task or on an autoclose task with task duration 0, because then the next task will already be assigned to the following user before the callout has finished.
Our current solution is to do the callout on an autoclose task with a duration of one day, and add the very end of the callout, we change the end time of the task to "now". The advantage of doing this on an autoclose task is that these autoclose tasks can easily be filtered out of the agile board or task list overview for end users, who do not need to be bothered with the details of our technical implementation. However, when we update the end date to "now", it still takes up to a minute before the autoclose task is actually closed.
This process could be facilitated a lot if we would have a "close" endpoint on autoclose tasks, similar to the "close" endpoint on ordinary tasks. Calling this endpoint would cause the autoclose task to immediately change its state to "closed". Note that this is already possible if one goes manually into the system and changes the state.
For a lot of our customers, we update the domain rights of the user groups through the REST API. Since we want to use the same configuration for multiple environments (DEV, QA and PROD) we have to use the names of the groups and not the IDs. This means that we have to use a GET call to retrieve all user groups, and then pick out the ID of the user group that we want to update. This is a very time consuming process, since the number of user groups can become quite large.
Therefore, we would like to ask if it would be possible to add a search endpoint on user groups. We could then just search on the name of the group, instead of having to import all of them. This endpoint could work in a similar way as the search endpoint for users.

When creating a new Asset via Adobe CC Connector, if the Classification the asset is being saved into has any required fields, the User is confronted with an error message, and no way to enter in the required data.
Considering how frequent required fields are for our Clients, this is quite inconvenient. It seems like the CC Connector should be uploading to the Uploads holding area, just like an upload via the usual DAM UI. Alternately, instead of the error message, the user could get a dialog box giving them an opportunity to fill in the required metadata.
Looks like the "Ability to Edit SQL Objects and run sql query to return results" is planned for Q3 2019. It would be awesome if the same "Update SQL Objects" feature could exposed to the API to enable us to create our own ways of validating and running queries against Aprimo.
When using the Creative Cloud Connector in Adobe InDesign, you can only filter assets through a free text search (which does not support field definitions for example) or by selecting a single classification. Often, this is not sufficient, as the end user still has to search through a few hundreds or thousands of assets until he finds the one he needs.
One possible solution for this would be to enable some kind of advanced search in the Creative Cloud Connector. Ideally, one would be able to select a combination of classifications by selecting/unselecting more than one classification in the browse tree. It would also be beneficial if the free text search would be extended to cope with field definitions.
Alternatively, it would also be a big help if facets could be defined in the Connector. This would then behave similarly to the Browse page in Asset studio.
My digital creative team works with Sketch and Adobe XD on a daily basis which are great tools for building website banners, emails etc. and they would love to have a connector that integrates Sketch and XD with the DAM to be able to pull assets in.
Currently when we load activities via loader, the process use case sensitivity to validates lookup data in the data file e.g. if an activity type is Coupon FSI and the value in file is coupon FSI, the process will fail. This is true for all the fields which requires validation against master data in Aprimo. Another example is funding mode, if populate fixed amount instead of Fixed Amount in the file process will fail. This take unnecessary time and effort. Like to make validation case in sensitive.
As a InDesign/Photoshop user I would like to have the ability to set a default filter on my search result. For example: I only want to see JPG, TIFF and PSD files when using the Adobe Creative Cloud Connector from InDesign. Although I might have access to a lot more assets from a security perspective; these are the only files that interest me when browsing/searching the DAM from within InDesign/Photoshop
As of now we should have 6 steps/API calls to create an attachment in an activity
1. check the file already existing
2. upload chunk file
3. complete chunk upload
4. create Attachment
5. create attachment version
This approach taking log time to create one attachment.
One of our requirement demands at least 100 to 200 attachments to upload, which taking log time.
So please reduce the steps to create attachments
Hello. We have a Client who would like to leverage Akamai CDN on Azure. From what Tarun has told us, the new Akamai connector only works with Akamai Net storage. Our Client has a strong preference for Akamai on Azure because they are already a MS Azure shop and want to keep CDN in the existing stack. Thank you.
Currently system doesn't allow to load activity forecasts without turning off approval parameter. To turn off approval it is required to process all approval queues. Need to have ability to load forecast via loader without disabling approval
The data loader has NOT been enabled yet to set a variable exchange rate via the template. Would like to enable the exchange rate via template.
Hilton Grand Vacations has two digital properties (English, and Korean) which are managed through Sitecore CMS. Each Website has its own Aprimo assets and associated meta data which need to be imported & managed in its own native language in the Sitecore CMS. The Aprimo connector can only display assets in the Sitecore CMS under one culture code. In our case, it is working fine for the US market: "en-US" but we also need it for the Korean culture code “ko-KR”. If we import an asset from an Aprimo DAM Korean classification through the connector; it defaults to the Sitecore English culture code and cannot be used in the Korean Website pages. We need a solution to import Aprimo assets to Sitecore CMS for more than one culture code.
