Assets HTTP API with Content Fragments on 6.4

christopher_jo4 09-04-2019

Hopefully I haven't missed any relevant documentation, but had a question regarding the Assets HTTP API with Content Fragments on 6.4.

It's my current understanding that AEM 6.5 introduces better support for Content Fragments via the Assets HTTP API:

Adobe Experience Manager Help | Using HTTP API with AEM Content Fragments

Is there any intention of bringing this support to AEM 6.4 via a service pack or cumulative fix pack?

Just exploring my options for an upcoming project.

Thanks gauravb10066713, that is correct and I'm aware of this initial support.

What I'm trying to figure out is if we'll get the enhanced Content Fragment support for the Assets HTTP API in 6.4 in future updates.

To dig into some specific details:

When I create a CF on 6.4 and access it through the Assets API, I get high-level details of the CF like title and description, but none of the actual properties inside the CF itself.

When I create a CF on 6.5 and access it through the Assets API, it also provides a "properties" -> "elements" -> "main" field that I can dig into which shows the critical CF properties I want to grab.

I'm hoping this support will come to 6.4 via updates, but wanted to see if that was on the roadmap or not.
