metadata thumbnailUri

Question asked by sspring on Mar 19, 2020

Is there an example of how to update thumbnails using the metadata module? I've tried a number of file path formats including this one below for making a new metadata object. The script runs, but the thumbnail doesn't update.

new_md.thumbnailUri = 'file:///c:/Folder/test.jpg'
