I have AEM's instance hosted something like this https://author.dev.demo.adobecqms.net, this is AEM 6.5 version.

I want to create and delete pages on this author instance using AEM's page manager API with any automation tool like JMeter or RestAssured but I have no idea, how to do it.

After spending some time on the internet (hitting in the dark), I am able to at settings.xml in .m2/settings.xml from this post - https://www.aemquickstart.in/2017/04/cannot-create-maven-project.html 

Also, I have below posts

  1. Publish/Unpublish Adobe AEM page from Java AEM Replicator API
  2. Using PageManager API in AEM6/CQ5 page Manager API
  3. https://www.codota.com/code/java/methods/com.day.cq.wcm.api.Page/getParent page Manager API

But how do I implement them? I don't have any AEM coding experience.

Any reference, tutorial, GitHub project, sample code which can help me in understanding how to API APIs on hosted AEM application?

Understanding PageManager API is difficult if you don't have any conceptual knowledge or hands-on experience on AEM, instead of that you can use POSTMAN and CURL commands to create pages.

Use the below command's to create pages, both will work.

curl -u admin:admin -F "jcr:primaryType=cq:Page" -F "jcr:content/jcr:primaryType=cq:PageContent" -F "jcr:content/jcr:title=keysandstrokes" -F "jcr:content/sling:resourceType=geometrixx/components/contentpage" http://localhost:4502/content/geometrixx/en/keysandstrokes

or 

 

curl -u admin:admin –F cmd="createPage" -F label="" -F parentPath="/content/geometrixx/en/company" -F template="/apps/geometrixx/templates/contentpage" -F title="new page" http://localhost:4502/bin/wcmcommand

 

Reference links for more curl commands:

http://www.coderss.in/aem-curl-commands/

https://hashimkhan.in/aem-adobecq5-code-templates/curl-aem-commands/

 

I tried both, in first curl command I am getting status 500 error

<html>
<head>
<title>Error while processing /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/content/demo-content-pages</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Error while processing /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/content/demo-content-pages</h1>
<table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Status</td>
<td><div id="Status">500</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Message</td>
<td><div id="Message">org.apache.sling.api.resource.PersistenceException: Unable to commit changes to session.</div></td>

 

and for the second curl command, I am getting below error

curl -u jeeva-admin:mypassword –F cmd="createPage" -F label="" -F parentPath="/content/content/demo-content-pages/en/newpages" -F template="/apps/demo/templates/defaultpage" -F title="new page curl" https://author.dev.demo.adobecqms.net/bin/wcmcommand

Hi @iamjeeva ,

 

In order to create/delete a page in AEM programatically, take a look at Page Manager API

https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/6-5/sites/developing/using/reference-materials/javadoc/co...

 

Code Snippet to create a page in AEM:

 

private void createPage (ResourceResolver resolver) throws Exception {

        String path      =  "/content/whatever" ;

        String pageName  = "testpage";

        String pageTitle = "Test Page";

        String template  = "/apps/sample/templates/test";

        Page testPage = null;

        PageManager pageManager = resolver.adaptTo(PageManager.class);

        if (pageManager != null) {

                testPage = pageManager.create(path, pageName, template, pageTitle);        

        }

}
