Creating an AEM Event Listener that tags pages

You can develop a custom event handler for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) that uses the TagManager API to add a tag to a new page. That is, when an AEM author creates a new page using site admin, an AEM event handler automatically tags the page. To work with tags, you use the AEM TagManager API.





This article will get you up and running with using the TagManager API, including how to build an OSGi bundle and include all of the POM dependencies. To read this development article, click https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/tagmanager.html

Moving DAM Assets using the Adobe Experience Manager Granite AssetManager API

You can use the Adobe Experience Manager com.adobe.granite.asset.api.AssetManager API to manage your digital assets located in the AEM DAM. Using this API, you can perform tasks such as checking to determine if assets exist, moving assets, retrieving assets, and so on. For information about this API, see AssetManager.

This development article walks you through how to build a custom AEM service using the AssetManager API that copies a PDF document (the digital asset used in this example) from one DAM folder to another.

Using Adobe Experience Manager Workflows

Workflows enable you to automate Experience Manager activities. Workflows consist of a series of steps that are executed in a specific order. Each step performs a distinct activity such as activating a page or sending an email message. Workflows can interact with assets in the repository, user accounts, and Experience Manager services. Therefore, workflows can coordinate complicated activities that involve any aspect of Experience Manager.

For example, a key application of Experience Manager is Web Content Management (WCM), which enables you to generate and publish pages to your website. This functionality is often subject to organizational processes, including steps such as approval and sign-off by various participants. These processes can be represented as workflows, which in turn can be defined within Experience Manager, then applied to the appropriate content pages.

Many useful workflow models are provided with Experience Manager. In addition, any number of custom workflow models, tailored to the specific needs of your project, can be defined using the Workflow console. A workflow is made of steps. Automated steps, also called process steps, can be defined by using either an ECMA script or a service (a Java class in a bundle). For information about creating a custom workflow step by using a Java service, see Creating custom AEM workflow steps that send email messages.


This article covers the following subjects:


  • Create an AEM workflow that activate AEM pages.
  • How to invoke the AEM workflow.
  • How to check if the workflow is successful.
  • How to invoke a workflow using workflow Launcher.
  • Workflow sessions.
  • Managing data in your workflow.
  • Monitor performance of workflows.
  • Managing workflow throughput.
