Hi Helix,

Thank you very much for taking the time and advice.

I will do it manually as you suggest and then on a development environment i will test using SQL for comment.

Regards.

Generally, I follow the procedure you describe " In XMLUI, when you go to a collection, select Edit Collection, there's a button to create an Item template at the bottom." But now i need do this in various collections and therefore I would like to do this in batches.

Your suggestion to use "Batch Metadata Editor" is not applicable because it only allows to edit metadata of items but not metadata of collections and then I should run it periodically to be applied to new items in the collection.

I'd still recommend doing it manually unless you have over a hundred such collections.

However, if you do have such a large number, look at the "template_item_id" column of the "collection" table. This should point to the "item_id" of a template item for that collection. That template item would have the metadata values you need pre-filled. Please, bear in mind that I never actually tried it and don't try it without doing a full database backup first.
