The reason why I want know this is I wanna get the delta changes after a specific timestamp from my publisher instance which node has been changed. I can get the added or modified nodes because they have timestamp to tell me when they have been changed, but I can't get the deleted nodes.

 

For example I have a node tree in AEM and it has been full published to my publisher instance.

And I have deleted the node "Page A-2" at some point.

The node "Page A-2" would just disappears from my publisher instance, there is no any records to tell me when it has been un-published.

 

A piece of my mind to solve this problem is handle the replication event and change the parent node modified timestamp if the child page will be un-published. But I don't think it's a best practice.

 

Is there any other way I can do this?

Hi @leonzhao0327 

If you want to know the deactivation history, you need to look at tracing in audit log.

You can see the solution detailed in below thread.

one way to solve this issue could be workflow . You can have have a workflow  which will get launched whenever author deletes a page a notification will be sent to your inbox .. This way you can keep track of all the deleted or deactivated pages.

Or  trace the audit log as mentioned by @Vaibhavi

If you are versioning the pages then you can get the delete page info from timeline on Author instance.
