gatewaytimeout while creating package programatically in AEMasCS

Avatar

Level 2

Dear Developers/Architects,

 I was trying to create packages programatically in AEM, it fetchs given page's  path and page's reffrences like xf paths and dampaths(more than 1500 dampaths), i combined content path and xf path in seprate package(package-0). when comes to dampath i splited the dampath in to 300 dampath/package and tried to create  packages(package-1,package-2 & viceversa..).  when i ran this code in my local aem instance, i was able to create spilt of packages(combined (xf & content paths) package and split of dampath packages) without any issues. when i deploy the code on AEMasCS, im getting gateway timeout issue. Kindly let us know your suggestion on this...

java code if the dampath more than 300

Hi @raja-thannasi 

Please check the permission in user admin for that user.if not,apply the permission to the user which ever required.

Hi @RajaReddy_3370 , thanks for you're response. the code doesn't required any user permission, as im creating package only.not using any system user. So i feel permission may not issue.

@raja-thannasi : How much of content is there on your AEMaaCS instance? If the size is too much, package creation can timeout, please refer this: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-cloud-service/content/implementing/develo...

If possible, try to have less content for your testing to rule out if this is due to content size. In your case, you can try to reduce this to 50 or 100 from current 300 and see if it works.

Hi @Kamal_Kishor , as per adobe recomendation, we should not create large set of packages, is there any limits Adobe have given as i dont see the package size limit on the link you sent., Also the user have full access rights to /etc/packages folder.

@raja-thannasi  can you try to save and close the session object in your finally block.

Hi @yashp0808 ,thanks for your response, the gateway timeout issue happened on the line below higlighted in the screenshot attached, where createPackage method. so saving the session will not work in the finally block.

@Kamal_Kishor , the size of the package was not able to size on package manager wizard,as it was incomplete state.please find the screenshot.

Also here , on my Local AEM instance, the same code were working as expected able to package /content path. issue was with on AEMasCS environment.

@raja-thannasi : do you have same content on your local and AEMaaCS instance?

Since your package creation failed, you will not see the size. Are you seeing anything in your logs related to this error?
thanks.

yes @Kamal_Kishor , in my local instance its 280MB. same  was not working in AEMascs. In error logs, im not seeing gateway timeout,when i see browser console im getting gateway timeout for the servlet call. logs, i can see it stopped  executing on the line packagehelper.createpackage method.

@raja-thannasi : Thanks for providing the details.
Can you try calling your servlet with a user which is part of admin group on AEMaaCS? Please try this and if it works with admin user, then you may have to create the packages with a service-user with permission to create/edit/delete permission under your content paths.

My understanding is based on this link where it says gateway error could be due to user permission or proxy issues.

Please try and let me know.
thanks.

A good approach all we should have is a system user with required permissions. Here is the below code which achieves our requirement.

URL how it looks like : http://localhost:portnumber/bin/api/createpackage?packageName=testpackage&packagePath=[/content/abcp... After hitting this URL in browser a package gets downloaded into your local. we can add 'n' number of filters in the array of URL and customize the logic as per our requirement version we used is AEM 6.5. If we comment this piece of code jpm.remove(pack); the package is visible in /crx/packmgr/index.jsp.

Hi @raja-thannasi 
Have you created a system user and provided permissions?

Hi @RajaReddy_3370 , i have given full permission for user like /content,/etc,/conf.

when i ran the code, im getting below error.
