Global sync listener for scd?

Avatar

Level 9

Watching the great gems session [1] couple of times. It was mentioned scd can be used to sync any folder in AEM.  I have set up the scd correctly and able to sync /home correctly.  But anything outside /home does not sync.  However making explicit curl command [2] sync correctly any thing outside /home.  That means listener is missing to call distribution api of scd outside the /home directory.   Please let me know

  • Is there any explicit package needs to be installed Or if i missed any configuration to update?   (Note:- Allowed roots configuration in Queue distribution setting does not help)
  • If needs to develop own listener what are the guidelines ?
  • Any plans in product roadmap to have this feature to sync any folder using scd.

You setup is probably missing a service that detects changes in the repository and triggers distribution requests (similar the example you shared [2]) upon changes.

You would need to develop a service that issues distribution requests via the APIs at

https://github.com/apache/sling/tree/trunk/contrib/extensions/distribution/api/src/main/java/org/apa...

In particular, see the Distributor API

https://github.com/apache/sling/blob/trunk/contrib/extensions/distribution/api/src/main/java/org/apa...

Syncing content is highly dependent on the content structure related to a specific use case, thus making a generic implementation is tricky.

To my knowledge, there is no plan to have generic sync feature implemented. You could implement sync for your own use case.

Still I believe can be made genric. I have filled for enhancement request at acs commons  at  Content Sync Listener to trigger distribution workflow · Issue #1130 · Adobe-Consulting-Services/acs... .If profession service feel importance will contribute the code there.

Hi MC Stuff,

could you please guide me what all I will have to write custom ?

I have user working fine in my system.

I want my /content/dam/xyz folder to be in sync.

I understand I need to write a listener, and how do I use distribution API in it ?

Regards,

Akash B.
