Best way to migrate to Kentico media library with long pathes.

Targutai Yesugei asked on August 3, 2017 10:59

Hello!

I have big folder with lots of subfolders and files. I want them all appear in media library on my site. I tried to use standart Kentico API, but got an exception in MediaFileInfoProvider.SetMediaFileInfo() with message: The specified path, file name, or both are too long..

So is there better way to migrate my images to media library? May be some ootb tool?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
What is the current length of the longest path and also, where in the Kentico structure it will be? Please note that the limit is 255 characters and this is the operating system limitation, not Kentico.

Maybe you can try mapping the current location to be the media files source folder.

I assume that you are pretty much limited to FilePath column size of media_file table. It is FilePath nvarchar(900). In a given media library you have 900 chars including file name for your file path: Len('folder1/folder2/folder3/img.gif') < 900

Hm, i tried to run my code once more, and it's worked. Strange, but i hope this error won't appear again.

Thank you!
