Environment

AEM 6.2 or later, upgraded from earlier version

Cause

The metadata schemas have been moved to a different location.

Resolution

In AEM6.2, metadata forms have been moved from the /apps/dam/content folder to /conf/global/settings/dam/adminui-extension/metadataschema instead of /apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms

AEM will throw the error above if you configure and try to read your metadata from the old paths under /apps.

To fix the problem do the following (replace customschema with your custom schema):

Copy the schema to the new location

  1. Go to http://aem-host:port/crx/de/index.jsp and log in as admin

  2. Copy /apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms/customschema to /conf/global/settings/dam/adminui-extension/metadataschema/customschema

  3. Save

Fix the folder configurations to use the new schema location

  1. Select the customschema schema in this UI [1]

  2. Then choose Apply Metadata to Folder (see related documentation [2])

  3. Browse to the folder that is exhibiting the problem and select it (to apply the schema)

  4. Use CRXDe to move the schema form from /apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms/customschema to /conf/global/settings/dam/adminui-extension/metadataschema/customschema

[1] http://aem-host:port/mnt/overlay/dam/gui/content/metadataschemaeditor/schemalist.html?formPath=/conf/global/settings/dam/adminui-extension/metadataschema
[2] https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/content/assets/metadata-schemas.html#Applying%20folder-specific%20metadata

If you find there are too many folders to apply the new schema location to then follow these steps instead: 

  1. Update all metadataSchema properties in DAM as well

  2. Log in to /crx/de/index.jsp web app

  3. Go to Tools => Query

  4. Enter this in the Query textfield: /jcr:root/content/dam//*[@metadataSchema=/apps/dam/content/schemaeditors/forms/customschema]

  5. Click on each result node and change the value of the property metadataSchema to /conf/global/settings/dam/adminui-extension/metadataschema/customschema

  6. Save
