I am working on AEM6. I would like a tool to import Word Doc into AEM.
I noticed there is a Offline importer which extract and convert a Word Doc a page and a default model workflow called DAM Parse Word Documents. I would like to use the workflow, but still did not find how to use it. Do I run the workflow within a existing page? where do I import the Word Doc?
Thanks a lot,
See this older thread - it may help you:
Another options that you have to work with Word docs in workflows is to write a custom Workflow step and use this API:
You can use an Apache API as well:
https://www.tutorialspoint.com/apache_poi_word/apache_poi_word_document.htm (or another Java Word API)
This will make a good HELPX community article - we will add this to the list.
Thanks for your reply.
I had already a look on the first thread, and In fact, it was one of the reason I want to have a look on the Workflow solution.
For now, I just want to know how the default Dam Parse Word Documents Model Workflow works and I have still no idea how it works.
The idea later is to build my own workflow but I need to start with the default workflow from Adobe.
As there seems to be lack of docs on this, i will check with product team to determine this. I sispect to get it to work how you want it, you need to write a custom step. Parsing a word doc and processing the extracted data is something that needed to be customized.
The Java code will be part of a HTL component. However - you can just as easily write a workflow custom step with the same Java logic and same dependencies as shown in the article.
