I’m working about a migration from an old “repository” to Portfolio then I need to insert all rows of the old database as assets in Portfolio.
I’m testing API and in particular “addAssetsByPath” method. I would like to create assets, then set fields and metadata copying from the source. I would like to avoid that Portfolio analyze files when I add the asset for not losing time and because I don’t have files available but only thumbnails. (Old files are archived in blueray supports)
When I test “addAssetsByPath” without file in folder I receive an error “File Not Found”.
Is there a way to skip the check? Have I to create fake little files in folder to go ahead? Am I in the right way?
Thanks in advance
