    Good morning,

    we have made a huge mistake when naming our folders, including spaces. So that the url of the media are not seo friendly.

    Since the medias are not used over the web yet, could you please rename our folders for us ?

    The idea would be to replace the spaces by a "-"

    Let me know if this is possible

    Thank you

    Hi Hugues, 

    I've responded to your ticket about this directly also, but for the benefit of other customers who see this comment - the solution is to rename the files in the 'old' folder and specify the 'new' folder as part of the new public_id.

    This can be performed using the rename method of the API, called for each image in the old folder.

    As Nadav said above, this is because the 'folder' is simply part of the public_id of the image, and changing it requires changing the public ID.  This also stops the old public_id from being accessible, so it's important to be sure you want to rename the files (e.g. you must check that the old URL isn't in use on your website or app already)
