Change content created date

Hi there.

Is it possible to afterwards change the date of when the content has been created?

Hi @moritz.guehring,

It’s unfortunately not possible to modify the actual metadata date properties of your items (e.g. sys.updatedAt), but you could create an additional date field in your content model to handle these additional cases.

Hi - this post is near 4 years old - has this changed? When migrating content from an old website / CMS, keeping the original publish date may be crucial for certain sites (news sites etc).

Would be highly appreciated if the API supported this by now.
