Does asset reprocess when copying content from higher environment to lower using AEM Cloud Content Copy Tool?

Did anyone get a chance to explore The Content Copy Tool | Adobe Experience Manager on AEMaaCS. If yes does it reprocess the copied content in the destination or is it like an exact replica, what if Dynamic Media configurations are different in these environments.

Hi @shubhanshu_singh ,

 

When using the AEM Cloud Content Copy Tool to copy content from a higher environment to a lower environment, the tool does not automatically trigger asset reprocessing by default. The Cloud Content Copy Tool is primarily focused on copying content nodes and associated metadata.

 

Content replication tools, including the Content Copy Tool, typically aim to create an exact replica of the content in the destination environment. This means that the copied content, including assets and associated metadata, should be identical to the source.

 

If the Dynamic Media configurations differ between the source and destination environments, the behavior would depend on the specific implementation and configuration. In some cases, the copied content may retain the original Dynamic Media configurations from the source environment. In other cases, the Dynamic Media configurations may need to be manually adjusted or synchronized in the destination environment.

If the content has been modified in the destination environment, it will be overwritten by content in the source if the paths are the same. Otherwise, content from the source will be merged with the content in the destination.
