Hi 

I need to upload PDF file into portal for arcgis. Those pdf file have metadata with a creation date. 

When I create the item in the portal , it takes the actual date. but I prefere to display the creationdate stored in the metadata instead. Then I need to change the creation date of the item with my own date.

Unfortunatly the is no function in the rest api to do this.

Do you have any idea ?

There's no way to modify the created date of an item in Portal. You might need to use the description or other metadata information to describe that information.

Hi

I already use the creation date in tha metadata. But when I sort the Gallery with the most recent. date,  It's the date of the portal item which is used : not the date in the metadata. 

Best regards

Right, the date it's sorting on is the modified date, which you won't be able to update.
