Best practice for policies/templates and ACLs (AEM 6.4.6)

Maikman83 12-02-2020

Hello all,


we have custom templates and polices in our project deployed to "/conf/customProject/settings/wcm/templates" and "/conf/customProject/settings/wcm/policies".


The problem is, that on the publisher the policies don't work, because of the deny jcr:all for everyone on the conf-folder. So we need to add 2 ACLs:

This works perfectly for us, but we don't know if there are any side effects or if there is not a better user (maybe a system user) for this issue.


Does anyone have the same issue and a better practice to handle it?


Best, Maik

@dgordon86 thank you for your answer.

We researched a little by ourself and we found this documentation:


Adobe recommend using the anonymous user. This user is part of the everyone group, so I think both solutions are capable.


Have a nice time.
