I am using the catalogProductRepositoryV1 (/V1/products) for importing a bunch of products (about 9.000). We have a very high fluctuation of products per day/import. So I would like to import images separated of those calls. I know, that the "media_gallery_entries" can import a Base64 string of the image, but with hundreds of products it would simply take too long.
If I would upload the images to a specific folder, would there then be a way to just set a path + filename during the import of the products?
That would have a way better performance.
