I am building a site based on Silverstripe 2.3.4. The draft content for site is received via an XML feed from a third party. I am able to create content and add assets via mysql using a cron job. I have 2000+ images loaded via the cron directly into the File table. But for some unknown reason, the asset data gets mysteriously truncated/deleted. I suspect that there is a reference checking being done by SS and it's truncating the remaining files. If that's the case, how do I create the reference so SS leaves the assets intact?
Thanks in advance.
