I didn't get this, What update exactly you are looking for? As I have mentioned in first reply, it is a security request filter at sling level responsible for this, uncheck the option (Enable Content Disposition for all paths) at filter takes you to the old behavior. It is a not a bug rather security improvement.
I was looking for the possible reason for the assets being downloaded rather than being displayed in the browser in AEM 6.4 .
I have observed this with all the images and this was never the case with AEM 6.1 .
I did look at the Enable Content Disposition for all paths option in Apache Sling Content Disposition Filter, but I do not see any differences between AEM 6.1 and 6.4 at a quick glance.
The Enable Content Disposition for all paths option is always checked by default.
Why is it that it needs to be unchecked to expect the old behavior while it is not recommended to uncheck this option.
I would like to know if there is more to this and just this option in content disposition filter.
Any update here?
I tried to add a robots.txt and it is being downloaded yet. I know that there are different ways to show a robots.txt but the simpliest way is to put in the dam and just configure a rule mapping, but this easiest way does not work because this issue.
Does anyone has solved it?
I am facing same issue in AEM 6.5 (without any service packs). I tried all possible tricks with Content Disposition filter like check/uncheck flag , putting proper values in included resource paths , but still it downloads my video assets rather than streaming in browser.
I am referring video assets through direct DAM link .
May I request if someone can be able to help me out here .
Thanks in advance.
We recently upgraded from 6.3 to 6.5 and facing the same issue. The pdf files, robot.txt and sitemap.xml were opening on the browser window on 6.3 version is downloading the files on 6.5 version. I have tried unchecking the "Enable For All Resource Paths" on the content disposition filter and also added the absolute path on "Included Resource Paths & Content Types" fields. Nothing works. Does anyone have solution??
I used the solution for PDF's from this thread. It works only via a dispatcher, though. But it works like a miracle.
The Disposition Filter in AEM is pretty useless (and pathetic) for all these scenarios. Not sure what is the purpose of that filter.
