What is included in AEM Mobile?

When you purchase a license to Adobe Experience Manager Mobile, you have access to Adobe Experience Manager Mobile On-Demand Services (AEM Mobile) and to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) instances as defined in the license agreement.

Adobe Experience Manager provides an environment for authors to create and manage content for mobile apps, without involving IT or designers in day-to-day operations.

The license agreement for AEM specifies the number of instances that can be deployed in a production environment. You can set up and maintain Experience Manager instances specifically for use with AEM Mobile, or you can license existing Experience Manager Sites or Assets instances for use with AEM Mobile.

AEM Mobile On-Demand Services

The AEM Mobile On-Demand Services provide the following capabilities:

  • Manage projects, settings, roles, users, and access.
  • Create app binaries to be deployed on individual mobile devices.
  • Define content organization, visualization, and navigation views.
  • Distribute content to mobile apps.
  • Manage entitlement to content (subscriptions, products, restricted collections).
  • Manage text notifications.
  • Content and notification services are exposed through the Experience Manager Mobile
  • On-Demand Services API, allowing third-party systems to integrate with the Experience Manager Mobile On-Demand Services.

Hi Kauthik,

I understand there are two ways to develop the Hybrid app in AEM

  1. AEM facilitating to develop custom phone gap hybrid mobile app on AEM plat form
  2. https://aemmobile.adobe.com cloud to develop the apps

What is the actual motive behind facilitating two ways?

I see in current out of the box components available ng-components and ng- page, all the scripts have in build support to develop the hybrid app using AngularJS.

Is there future any plan to Adobe to update these out of the box components support to latest Angular frame work and continuing support for developing Hybrid Apps using AEM alone rather AEM mobile cloud?

We have not used https://aemmobile.adobe.com so far, would be able to use the custom components and templates developed for hybrid app in apps developing  using https://aemmobile.adobe.com

Thanks,

Madhu

Hi mchag,

You can develop app through https://aemmobile.adobe.com ​ but there is no components and template scenerio it's just like based on javascript ,collections and artice you can develop the app for all supported OS.

Thanks

Hi Kautuk,

I am using AEM 6.4 and want to build an AEM Mobile on demand App and manage its contents using AEM 6.4. With 6.2, i could create a new AEM Mobile On Demand App and connect it to AEM Mobile On demand services portal. I have configured a new AEM On Demand Configuration already(with API Key and Secret from wwds support) as a cloud configuration, however i do not see template to create an On demand App in 6.4. I saw that Adobe have taken out Mobile console from 6.4 and there was a recommended package to be installed from Package share. I have installed that package, though i can see Mobile console and an option to create an App now, but i guess the recommended package does not have template to create On Demand App.

Do you know if we can use AEM Mobile with AEM 6.4 through additional feature pack installs. Otherwise what is the recommended way to manage contents for On Demand Apps from AEM 6.4.

Thanks

Hi there,

AEM Mobile on-demand services is only supported via upgrades.

ie: you have an existing app build using AEM 6.2 or 6.3 and upgrade to AEM 6.4.

You cannot create and manage new on-demand apps in 6.4.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for that reply. Understood but i am surprised. Does that mean that if i am a new Adobe customer starting on AEM 6.4(which is the case for one of my clients), i cannot create or manage AEM Mobile apps through my AEM instance. I am wondering if that is true, why Adobe has gone down this route. Is this a deliberate step in AEM Mobile product roadmap trying to kill AEM Mobile On-demand service. Sure, i can still create new Apps directly in on-demand portal but one the really powerful features that i was thinking was to be able to manage contents for those using AEM as i could reuse lot of my content from AEM web channel. Do you have any materials/product roadmap to explain this step and future of AEM Mobile.

Thanks
