Please let me know process how to enable the SSL or HTTPs to access the AEM Author (either using private ,key store certificate or using /system/console/configMgr or sling map)

Hello Vara,

 

Is there any specific reason to not to use dispatcher for author? The link that I shared earlier shows how to get the single dispatcher serving content for both author and publish. Moreover, this is the recommended config by Adobe Managed Service (AMS) for AEM 1:1 topology.

 

For local/non-prod setup self-signed cert should be fine. However, in ideal scenario where your load balancer (like ELB) is accessible through internet via DNS, CA approved certificate can(should) be installed.

 

Thanks

Hello Vara,

 

I am not sure if you already have dispatcher in-place or not. If not you can set it up and let it manage the SSL for you. Here is a comprehensive instruction set to set it up locally: https://github.com/adobe/aem-dispatcher-docker

 

The example in the above link shows it with a self sign certificate however, If your load balancer is available on internet you can go for standard certificate authorities (CA) and attach the certificate in the LB.

 

If you can provide more detail about your current setup, will be able to help more.

 

Thanks

Dispatcher in-place only for publish server not author .
