Sampath works with me in my project. Pls allow me to clarify.
The business need is as follows:
- They have 2 AEM instances with the Instance 2 being used exclusively for Adobe Assets
- The application is deployed in Instance 1 and should have capability to embedded assets into a page as link for download
- The search functionality in the application deployed in Instance 1 should be able to search DAM assets & their metadata from both instances
One of the options is to use a search indexer like Apache SOLR and index both instance there however the customer doesnt want us to introduce a new software to their stack which will take 3-6 months for approval.
The second option is to use some kind of a feed from Instance 2 and create the nodes(with absolute urls to Instance for binary) in Instance 1. The assets still reside in Instance 2 but just a bare metadata and absolute url in node in instance 1.
Hello smacdonald2008. If my plan is to use AEM assets as a central asset repository for my organization and have multiple applications consume the assets (meta data + binaries) from this central repo. Is this an ideal use case for AEM assets
