Q. what is the way to extend CIF Cloud add-on administrative interface? Any roadmap to allow editing product attributes in Magento from AEM interface?
A. We have currently no plans to support extending CIF authoring via customer code. However, editing of commerce properties in AEM is on the roadmap. Additionally, we will allow augmenting external product data inside of AEM with Content Fragments. There is no mutation available from Magento to update product attributes via GraphQL
Q. From following the development of CCC and CIF it seems you are going into a direction where you focus heavily on commerce FE like Magento. I wonder why this is the case why not allowing an easy plugin in existing AEM components. There is currently no easy way to use the product CC and configure the product in the component itself but it has to be fetched from the selection
Q. How the AEM performs in this architecture in the checkout and payment side of the commerce implementation
A. Checkout etc. is currently implemented using client-side components which use Magento GraphQL directly. AEM is not involved in this process.
Q. any plans for closer integration between AEM Assets and Magento? What is the current suggested process to associate product images in AEM with products in Magento?
A. This is a question for Magento. There are plans for the integration, and a project accelerator is in progress. But we don't have the details.
Q.Whats the intention behind the development instead of using Magento page builder? What sparked the idea to develop this?
A.Page builder is a page editor. AEM is a content management system. As customers gain digital maturity, they outgrow a regular page editor
Q. Is there a plan to port over existing Magento stores to AEM?
A. Not stores that are based on Luma. this is too Magento specific and typically customized a lot.
Q. Does this need AEM activation to make a product live or can this be made live directly from Magento
A. Both options are possible, depending on the project requirements. Default flow is to set products live in Magento, they will automatically show up on the AEM side. But we support stagged products as well to have a synced publish of content & commerce data.
