Clientlibs issue in AEM 6.5


Level 2

Hi Team,

Recently we are migrating to 6.5 before we have all css and js files in etc/clientlibs,

Now adobe recommended to keep in apps

We have Css/js files under /apps/exampleproject/clientlibs/exampleproject/clientlibs_webtrends this path

The description for the above path

  • exampleproject ->projectname
  • clientlibs (nt:floder) -> Folder
  • exampleproject -> cq:Page
  • clientlibs_webtrends -> cq:ClientLibraryFolder added allowProxy =true

I have set the allowProxy=true to clientlibs_webtrends,    but am not able to expose the clientlibs by


I can access the clientlibs using /apps/exampleproject/clientlibs/exampleproject/clientlibs_webtrends/js/example.js

We cant provide access to /apps in production

Please help me in resolving this issue

Hi ,

Thanks for the link

I have the same structure as mentioned in the link

Not able to access clientlibs via /etc.clientlibs path as shown in this example



Level 5

you have to set the allowProxy property on clientlib-base to true....

then you can request /etc.clientlibs/initialyzer/clientlibs/clientlib-base.js

and i hope you are taking care of this point too

Make sure to use a relative path in place of absolute paths.


Level 2

In some places we need only one js file to be included, not complete js folder , we are using like below

<script type="text/javascript" src="/etc.clientlibs/initialyzer/clientlibs/initialyzer/clientlib-base/js/example.js"> </script>

but JS file is not loading


Level 5

did you check the minify option in the HTML configuration in the felix console ?


Level 5

please enable the minify option and then I'd suggest looking at the log file. Sometimes this can happen if there is a syntax error in your JavaScript which is caught by the minimizer.

Is this issue only observed via dispatcher? If yes, you need to allow etc.clientlibs in the filter rules.

If trying this directly on AEM instance, Setting allowproxy variable should load the clientlib directly on AEM instance using etc.clinetlibs.

Do you see the same issue when using sly? Example:

data-sly-call="${clientlib.js @ categories='clientlib1'}"

Lastly, Can you share the HTML Library Manager configuration from OSGI config manager?


Level 2

The issue is not only in dispatcher even in local or dev or stage same issue exist

we are using like this

<script language="javascript1.2" src="/etc.clientlibs/example/clientlibs/example/rwd/clientlibs_base_new/js/monitoring.js"></script>

Even after adding allowProxy =true for clientlibs_base its not loading

How can we use this ?

The configmgr screenshota s shown below:

It does work if clienlibs properties are set properly

In order for the client libraries under /apps to be accessible, a proxy servelt is used. The ACLs are still enforced on the client library folder, but the servlet allows for the content to be read via /etc.clientlibs/ if the allowProxy property is set to true.

can you share clientlibs properties?


Community Advisor

It looks ok for config side.

can you try to add using

<sly data-sly-use.clientlib="/libs/granite/sightly/templates/clientlib.html"

    data-sly-call="${clientlib.all @ categories='falcon.base.nwd'}"/>

If it works, you can check the included js path and trying adding using script tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src="/etc.clientlibs/initialyzer/clientlibs/initialyzer/clientlib-base/js/example.js"> </script>

You can open a daycare ticket if it doesn't resolve.

I am facing a similar issue accessing js located in /app/../clientlib/ through the proxy servlet.


My clientlib config is

name: "clienlib-xyz",
        allowProxy: true,
        categories: ["clienlib-xyz.angular"]
        jsProcessor: ["default:none","min:none"],
        cssProcessor: ["default:none","min:none"],
there is a js file: /apps/xyz/clientlibs/clienlib-xyz/js/0.js
When I try to access following in publisher, it doesn't load


Level 2

The issue is not only in publish/dispatcher even in local or dev or stage author/publish same issue exist

As per my understanding, you want to access the js files directly and not via client library include, if I am correct, then you can try creating a folder  with the name "js" under resources  of your required clinetlibray folder and you can access as like below. Its worked for me.



Proxy servlet resolves the direct files, if it is present under clientlibray folder (with allowproxy=true) -> resources -> (folder with any name) ->File.

Hope this helps.

Update : In order to avoid the duplicate copy of the file between client library and resource folder, in the js.txt you can change the js base reference as below.
