Following AEM 6.3 upgrade custom component configuration labels are missing

Avatar

Level 3

We performed a 6.3 upgrade recently. For various reasons we stuck with Felix 1.9.8 annotations for now so I'm wondering if that's related. Anyway, labels and descriptions for our custom component configurations are missing. They look like this in the system config console.

The code for our main pom.xml looks like it does below. I'm wondering if something in our Maven configuration is incorrect or if this is just how Felix-annotated configuration will look and we need to speed up the move to OSGI annotations.

I played around with the POM settings and figured out the problem. I was using version 1.26.0 of the Felix maven-scr-plugin dependency. Once I switched back to 1.20.0 this stared working correctly. So that plugin should look like this.

<plugin>

<groupId>org.apache.felix</groupId>

<artifactId>maven-scr-plugin</artifactId>

<configuration>

<scanClasses>true</scanClasses>

</configuration>

<executions>

<execution>

<id>generate-scr-descriptor</id>

<goals>

<goal>scr</goal>

</goals>

</execution>

</executions>

<version>1.20.0</version>

</plugin>

The development of the Apache Felix SCR Plugin is in maintenance mode. You should use the official annotations from the OSGi R6 specification.

Why would labels and descriptions start working with AEM 6.3, though? Is there something we can do until we upgrade?

Level 10

If you have access to a fresh install of AEM 6.3 - try that use case on that server. LEts see if its a upgrade issue or not working in AEM 6.3 for some reason.

Try this use case meaning try a pom file like the above, but with a clean install and a basic component configuration?
