Export the complete page tree / Import in a new AEM Installation

Avatar

Level 1

Hello, 

 

We have a large AEM page structure and now want to export an entire branch from this structure and import it into an empty AEM installation.


Is this possible with AEM?

 

Thanks for your help/ideas.

Hello @colt-ger 

 

In general, if the package size is less than 2 GB,we should be able to build/download/install AEM packages.

However, it also depends on the network speed of the person performing the download and upload of packages. 

If the pages have asset/tag references, you might want to sync those as well. The asset packages would be of higher sizes.

 

I would to use an incremental approach. Specifically, if you have to sync assets as well.

Yes it is possible.

If your target instance is a publisher instance then you can just setup a replication agent on source author and use tree activation to push the content swiftly.

If not then you can create one normal AEM content package to have the content root path and build, download and deploy on the target. 

If you need referenced assets as well then you can take help from ACS packager for the same.

but be careful about the size of the content, if it heavy then you should consider heap size on the target server.

Hope this helps

Are you referring to move content from one Aem environment to another? If yes the you can work with package manager to build the content package and install into another but if the content size is too big then you can take help of crx-oak migration or remote jcr vault application.

and if you want to move content from author to publish the just use the aem replication agent to replicate the content
