1. Is there a feature pack that would support connecting AEM 6.4 to SharePoint 2016. 2. Does the connector work on AEM publish instances? If yes, is it recommended for end user login? 3. As the connector creates a JCR workspace can it co-exist with our existing JCR workspace of AEM or do we need a separate AEM instance? 4. Will connector support SSO based authentication using SAML?
By default the connector exposes a single JCR workspace. The SharePoint server which is exposed by this workspace is set through the 'Sharepoint Server URL' configuration parameter.
The connector can also be configured for multiple workspaces. In this case, each workspace is associated with the URL of the respective SharePoint server that is exposed through the workspace. To add a workspace, add a workspace definition to the Workspaces parameter. A workspace definition has the following format:<name>=<url>where<name>is the name of the JCR workspace and<url>is the URL of the SharePoint server for that workspace.
In AEM, perform one more step apart from above configuration steps. Whitelist the 'com.day.cq.dam.cq-dam-jcr-connectors' bundle.
To whitelist bundles in AEM, perform the following steps:
Navigate to the OSGi Management Console: http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr.
Search for " Apache Sling Login Admin Whitelist" service.
Select Bypass the whitelist.
Add 'com.day.cq.dam.cq-dam-jcr-connectors' in whitelist bundles default
