Moving PDF Source Files

Hi All-

We have PDFs linked to our products repository in MDM that reside in a file system (not in the MDM database). We are upgrading our environment and need to move the source files to a new location.

Is there a way to easily update the source location for the PDFs in Data Manager? The only option I can see is to manually do a 'Replace' on each file. The source metadata of the file in Data Manager is not editable.

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.



Hello Tim

Mass upload links for PDF is not supported in current SAP MDM version

You can change link one by one(manually) in PDF table use "Replace" option


if you just remove directory contain PDF files from one place to another one

export from your main table Records unique key and linked PDF LUT field value(you can do it in DM or in Syndicator)

PDF LUT Field contein PDF file name(nothnig more)


go to PDF table and delete all PDF links


add new pdf links from new PDF location


import records inique key and PDF names

but you can't map source PDF names to destination in automatic mode , only manually

after that - do import

all pdf's have returned to their places in main table
