I'm wondering if there is an existing workflow to achieve what I'm looking for before I'm forced to go and build my own. This is, preferably, in drupal 7.

I have media files stored on an akamai server that need to be scanned either via a cron or manual start and after they're scanned, their filenames need to be put into separate content. I do not need the files individually parsed, I just need the filenames added to title and add the filename to a textbox within the created content.

I have found a few methods that sound similar to what I'm looking for such as: - Storage API: Does connect, but cannot find files that were not uploaded via their service. - File Field Sources: No remote FTP, but does scan local and such. - Bulk Media Upload: Does scan and create a new node for each, does not do remote.

Any ideas?

How about feeds?
