Action rating 5 stars

Hello,

 

I need help creating an action in photoshop that can rate my file 5 stars. I know how to register an action, then apply it. But when I save the action, go to Files > Info, rate 5 stars with the mouse, then ok. The action is saved but when I want to apply it to a file, the 5 tars are not added to file info. I also tried to record the action by applying a Metadata Template which gives 5 stars. But the result is the same, the action is saved but when I apply it to another file, the 5 stars do not apply.

 

To test, I created an action by adding text in the info (example the mention of the copyright), in this case, the mention applies well when the action is executed.

 

Is there a particular technique ? Did I miss something ?

*/

#target photoshop

if (documents.length) {
    if (ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript === undefined) ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject("lib:AdobeXMPScript");
    var xmp = new XMPMeta(activeDocument.xmpMetadata.rawData);
    xmp.deleteProperty("http://ns.adobe.com/xap/1.0/", "Rating");
    xmp.setP

I'll need to test an action. It could be scripted, however, Adobe Bridge is the right tool for the job if the only purpose is to add a rating.

I think I have to make a script because with actions it doesn't work. I would like to be able to apply the 5 star ratings in Photoshop automatically, because my process is as follows: I rate the raw files that I am interested in in Lightroom (3 stars), then I send these files to be edited in photoshop, once the files are modified, they are automatically saved in my Lightroom library. I would like these files, when they go back to Lightroom, to be rated 5 stars without me having to do it manually in Photoshop. I hope to find a solution.
