Changing default URL in AEM

Avatar

Level 2

Hi Friends,

How do I change the default URL in AEM. 

For example: When I click on the content in the siteadmin (sample below), it opens in the " touch ui mode " (editor.html), whereas I want it to open in the content finder mode. 

http://localhost:4508/editor.html/content/geometrixx/en/toolbar/contacts.html

http://localhost:4508/cf#/content/geometrixx/en/toolbar/contacts.html.

How to get it in CF mode by default ?

Please help. Thanks

Root Mapping Configuration in Adobe AEM

//

In Adobe AEM, when you hit http://<host>:<port>/ by default it is redirected to

Author: /projects.html (AEM 5.6.1 and above)

Publish: /content.html


How it works ?

“com.day.cq.commons.servlets.RootMappingServlet” – is responsible to redirect to the set root URL configure using the property called “rootmapping.target”

If you go to http://<host>:<port>/system/console/configMgr in each of the instance, you would see the above mentioned paths and hence the behaviour.

RootMapping AuthorRootMapping Author

 

RootMapping PublishRootMapping Publish

In author instance its straight forward but if you see publish instance, though its configured as ‘/content.html’ it redirects to ‘geometrixx-outdoors’ hompage reason being the 2 properties which is set for the node ‘/content’.

sling:resourceType as sling:redirect and

sling:target as /geohome (/geohome is the vanityURL for /content/geometrixx-outdoors)


How to change ?

Most likely, we would want to change the root mapping from /geohome to our own application in the publish instance and the same can be done in below mentioned ways

/content :

We know, in publish instance root mapping is set to /content.html. So go to /content node in crx de. Change the URL for the property sling:target to map to your own application content node and save. Package the same from the author instance and deploy it on the publish instance.

Note: when you package it and add the /content as the filter, make sure you add ‘exclude’ rule as ‘/content/*’ so that it doesnt include the child pages of the content node.

Package Manager FilterPackage Manager Filter

 

configMgr :

Login to the config manager console directly either in author or publish which you want to change, search for ‘Day CQ Root Mapping’ and change the ‘Target Path’ and click on Save. Next time when you access instance, it should redirect to the configured path.

custom config :

  • Create /apps/<projectname>/config.<runmode>/com.day.cq.commons.servlets.RootMappingServlet (runmode = author or publish)
  • Add a property rootmapping.target with value equal to home page path.
  • Activate or deploy /apps/<projectname>/config.<runmode>/com.day.cq.commons.servlets.RootMappingServlet

Refer OSGi Configuration to understand how to create the config files for each runmode

This approach would be best as it does not need any manual configuration across your instances and it get deployed to any instance as part of your project deployment.

Using AEM Root Mapping(OSGI console) you can configure the UI that you want to have as the default for your instance:
To have the touch-optimized UI as the default UI the Target Path should point to:
    /projects.html
To have the classic UI as the default UI the Target Path should point to:
    /welcome.html
