Customizing the AEM 6.1 Context Hub

Isidro_U
Level 1
Level 1

We would like to use the Context Hub to manage personalization in our AEM Site. 

We’ve followed the documentation found at:

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/ko/aem/6-1/develop/personalization/contexthub.html#Create a Context Hub Store Candidate

The default Context Hub contains many stores that we don’t use / need and we created a new Configuration container with only the stores we require (in the same we we usually create a new client context configuration for each site); the problem we see is that we have not been able to locate the place where we have to update the reference to the new Context Hub.

The  docs state that the context hub will load all stores below /etc/cloudsettings/default/contexthub node (our new config is located at:/etc/cloudsettings/lt_config_container/contexthub). 

Looking at the code of the component : granite/contexthub/components/contexthub  we couldn’t find any dialog or reference to where the code is selecting the source of the context hub is ( as opposed to the client context where we have a design dialog and the code clearly looks for the custom reference in the design path or uses the default).  

The ContextHub service OSGI configuration does not have this option either.

There are additional references in the documentation that point to customizing the default context hub node when we create new Stores, etc.

 

Is it possible to use a new ContextHub Configuration Container?

If it is, where can we configure this option? ( is there additional documentation that could guide us).

We actually have the same use case as mentioned above and I can't find any information in the docs on how to use anything but the default path "/etc/cloudsettings/default".
