  • Hi Afaq,
    At this time, you can't upload the files that were generated on azure media service v2 to asset v3 by REST API. Based on this documentation, "the AssetFiles were removed from the AMS API in order to separate Media Services from Storage SDK dependency. Now Storage, not Media Services, keeps the information that belongs in Storage." 

    Many of the advanced features of the Media Encoder Standard in v2 APIs are currently not available in v3, such as:
    Stitching of Assets
    Thumbnail Sprites
    Inserting a silent audio track when input has no audio
    Inserting a video track when input has no video

    Please see this documentation for more info about feature gaps between v2 & v3. Let me know if you have additional questions.

  • Afaq -

    Why are you trying to copy files associated with a V2 asset to a V3 asset? You can use V3 API's with an asset that you created using v2 API. The documentation that Grace pointed you to is with regard to the AssetFile entity from V2 which does not exist in V3. The AssetFile entity in V2 represents the actual video/audio file that is stored in a blob container. In V3 to access the same functionality from the Asset entity you can determine the storage account and storage container name via the value of the StorageAccountName and container attributes and then use Azure Storage API's to enumerate / manage the files associated with the asset as files for an asset are just stored as block blobs in the Azure storage container.
