AEM Documentation Busted


Level 3

Hi Adobe.

Many documentation URLs are busted. For example,

These came up as a result of a search for "workflow" from the main documentation page at

Hi David

It should be fixed now.
Thanks for reporting it.

Has anyone else noticed these forum pages take forever to load?

Yeap. And this is bad for AEM/CQ's reputation to say the least. I am working on an AEM project that might eventually require AEM to serve hundreds, if not thousands, of web sites. Considering how slow, unstable, and buggy these forums are I sometimes fear that AEM might fail us sooner or later.



Hi, folks. Sorry for the very slow loading of some of the pages on this site, and for any general slow performance you may be experiencing.

When we built this community forum, we did so using the Adobe Experience Manager (a.k.a. CQ) and its Social Communities capability - but we also introduced quite a bit of our own custom application code. It is also worth noting that, when we built this community, we did not do a good enough job at testing with large volumes of content and performance tuning based on end-to-end workflows - we focused primarily on performance testing for concurrent usage individual features.

We are working to tune performance now, and get this site working at its optimal level, but we have determined that a proper fix will require a complete re-work of our entire custom application codebase, and thus may take some time. We do appreciate your patience while we do this.

My hope is that, despite our failings in performance/load testing methods and the problems with our custom application code, you do not come away from using this site with a poor impression of Experience Manager or of Social Communities specifically.

The platform is naturally highly performant - you just have to make sure your application code is as well, and that you account for real-world usage in your performance testing and tuning.


@LinearGradient, and anyone else - if you are planning to implement Social Communities as part of your site, feel free to reach out to me directly and I would be happy to share what my team has learned from this experience, and some details of how we are correcting the application code and the performance.
