This tutorial explains the details on enabling the Salesforce communities with Adobe Experience Manager(AEM) content through Salesforce CMS Connect (HTML).
Communities are a great way to share information and collaborate with people who are key to your business processes, such as customers, partners, or employees. The Salesforce Community Cloud allows us to set up the communities in a simple way.
Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) is a comprehensive content management solution for building websites and all of their complementary applications.
For the companies using both Salesforce Communities and external Content Management Systems e.g. AEM, the content will be duplicated in both the systems also the branding will not be consistent across all the websites. This can be overcome by using the Salesforce Communities CMS Connect components, Salesforce communities can pull the content and styles from external CMS systems e.g AEM through CMS connect.
CMS Connect is a functionality that has been added by Salesforce to communities.
CMS Connect allows Community Cloud Customers to leverage the existing content and pull it in dynamically into their Lightning Communities. Allows you to centralize content in whatever the CMS system you have chosen, without having to recreate content when you want to leverage it in your communities. This will enable the Headless CMS experience, the content is managed through a centralized CMS system and consumed through different channels to support different business cases.
