AEM Dispatcher Configurations - symlinks by Stories by Albin Issac on Medium

Abstract

The AMS 2.0 Dispatcher standard/AEM as Cloud Dispatcher configurations enable modularized dispatcher configurations and also simplify and remove the duplicate configuration.

As shown in the below diagram, one of the major changes is using symlinks to avoid duplication of farm files and host configurations. In earlier versions, the farm and vhost files are duplicated under available and enabled folders, this leads to duplication and overhead for management — the changes should be applied in two different files.

In AMS 2.0/AEM as Cloud Service dispatcher configurations, the files are managed through symlinks, the actual file is inside the available folder, and symlink created to the file under the enabled folder. The symlinks are going to be relative to the available folder — ../available_vhosts/test.vhost

e.g
~/dispatcher/src/conf.d/available_vhots/test.vhost — original
~/dispatcher/src/conf.d/enabled_vhosts/test.vhost — symlink
~/dispatcher/src/conf.dispatcher.d/available_farms/test_farm.any— original
/dispatcher/src/conf.dispatcher.d/enabled_farms/test_farm.any — symlink
