AEM 6.2 - Target component (cq/personalization/components/target)

Avatar

Level 4

Hi, everyone.

I'm aware:

  • I can use either the Targeting mode (Touch UI) or the Target menu (cq:disableTargeting="false" - Classic UI) to configure a component with specific values to a particular segment;
  • This is supposed to work for campaigns created with either Adobe Target or ContextHub as engine.

But I have a few questions about the "Target component" (cq/personalization/components/target):

  1. Would it work for campaigns whose the selected engine is ContextHub?
  2. How can I configure which components are allowed inside a Target component? Am I supposed to extend the component in order to preconfigure the allowed children?
  3. Besides the Target component, is there any other way of configuring a group of component instances, inside a page, that should appear only to a specific segment?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Daniel.

Yes, it works the same regardless of the targeting engine

The target component inherits from the foundation parsys, so the allowed components should be configurable via the Design mode.

I hope this helps.

I have asked Feike to share thoughts on this.

To me you can just use components inside your parsys/layoutContainer.

Then each of those components can be targeted.

Its been a while since the answer was given... Are there any restrictions of contexthub to target a layout container / parsys ?

I have components such as accordions or tabs that when targetted, content in the embedded inner layout container disappears and cannot have variations. It doesn't matter if there are components added or not.

Any help, greatly appreciated.
