Is it possible to do a bulk update/change of the ID Prefix of target/delta link objects, in the same way we can for source objects?

Following the instructions on the following help page, correctly updates the name, ID, and ID prefix of source objects, but misses delta links.

Kind regards

Hi Nuno,

I believe you can do this targetting '', '' via PCD Inspector "Mass Property Change" functionality. It is a good idea to take db backup before using this tool.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your suggestion. I tried using the "Mass Property Change" functionality of PCD Inspector, which correctly identifies the delta link objects, but upon execution, I get the following error:

Error changing pcm property! - Exception msg: putAttribute() failed - Attribute Id must not be edit (part of standard non editable attrs)! url: (hidden) attrId:

Is this something I could work around?

Many thanks.

Hi Nuno,

Select the parent folder in which all the portal objects exists whose ID prefixes are to changed. Right click on it and choose Change ID.

Click Next in ID Change Confirmation screen and input New Object ID and New Object ID Prefix. Select the second radio button "Change ID prefix of the selected folder and all contained objects" and click Finish. Now all the portal objects exists in the parent folder and including it will get new prefix added in their PCD path.

Best Regards,
