Media library folders beta is live

Hello, dear community members!

We’re happy to share progress on the very awaited feature - folders in media library.
It allows you to group media assets into folders to organise them as you wish.

The feature is available in Strapi v4.3 beta, to test it please run the following command:

npx create-strapi-app@beta my-project

Check out the user guide for the media library folders to try the feature out.

We would love to meet your expectations for this feature.
Please let us know what you think about it in this tread :hugs:


Great release team! Absolutely love this… my first bit of feedback as I test this out is I will need breadcrumbs somewhere in the interface to help me navigate through the folders. I put together a loom to illustrate this.

This is great, I look forward to utilise this folder feature with the REST API to upload files in folders.

@Dimitris_Ktr Thanks! In the first iteration folders won’t be exposed through the APIs and only used as an internal concept for content-editors.

Can you explain me what you want to build with folders in the API?

I tried using the command npx create-strapi-app@beta my-project and installed the regular 4.2.0 (non-beta). Not seeing folders.

Installing the beta this way only works for new projects. For existing ones you need to manually update your dependencies to: e.g. @strapi/strapi": "4.3.0-beta.1. Make sure to update all @strapi scoped packages.

How does it work with GraphQL?
