Session FAQs

Q. Can we use project firefly to communicate with 3rd party services? For example: sending form data to CRM system. 

A. Absolutely! You can write custom code as part of your Firefly project that sends any data into 3rd party systems and services. 

Q. Which cloud vendor Adobe uses for Firefly? AWS or Azure? 

A. We really consider that an implementation detail of the services. Based on the need, we select the appropriate cloud vendor. At the moment, I believe most of our services are hosted on Azure. Firefly is open to all existing enterprise customers. 

Q. Does it work for both Inbound and Outbound requests? 

A. Did you mean if the application can both receive data and send out data? If that's the case, yes that works. You can certainly set up an endpoint for your application to be pinged by external services in addition to sending out data in your application. 

Q. Regarding your AEM cache invalidation use-case, why not simply send the invalidation request from AEM (Java code)? What is the benefit of having Firefly in-between? 

A. ther than some limitations due to their custom implementation and performance concerns, one of the advantage of having this running outside of AEM, the developer can easily modify the "rules" for which assets need immediate cache invalidation, instead of having to do a full AEM deployment. 

Q. what license we have to get to use FireFly if we already have AMS license 

A. Firefly is in developer preview and currently free of charge. Firefly page: https://www.adobe.io/apis/experienceplatform/project-firefly.html 
And Preview sign up: https://adobeio.typeform.com/to/obqgRm 
with Firefly dev preview you will be provisioned with runtime and access to experience.adobe.com 

Q. are there any limitations on the volume of the requests? 

A. Yes, the system is configurable but does come with some limitations, you can read more about it in our documentation!
