Enable user to identify Main File during Package Ingestion

RJ Mendoza 3 months ago in Digital Asset Management updated by Kerry 2 days ago 3


We have this instances wherein the package would have 2, AI file in it, so when we upload it, package detection would error and will not extract the contents. 

Maybe if possible, instead of getting an error, maybe the user can be presented with an option to nominate the main file on the package?

Hi Petra, for this topic, BI would like to know if you can advise what expression other customers use when ingesting packages that have no fixed structure?  Many thanks, Kerry


You can identify the main file with a regular expression. You can make that more detailed than just identifying the file type. The package ingestion functionality assumes you will know the structure of the file you are ingesting. Therefore we see the identification of the main file as an automated mechanism and we have no plans to build a UI around that process failing apart from the information which is already available in the catalog log (which will show you why it failed).
