Hi 

AFAIK replication is the process of publishing from author to publish or publish to author, dispatcher cache flushing etc. We can can not copy jcr values from author to cloud/ Data Store or any DMA tools.

Reference Links:-

How to configure replication agent to specific site content :- http://aemfaq.blogspot.in/2013/05/how-to-configure-replication-agent-to.html

If you need to store the data independently from the content nodes, then DATA Store could be used: https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-0/deploy/upgrade/data-store-config.html

If you want to communicate between AEM and Target (transfer data among each other), then you need to write a custom sling service, which can call Target API to fetch or feed data: https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/documentation/test-target/c-testandtarget-api (Target API), https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/restful-services.html (AEM Restful service).

 

I hope this would help you.

Thanks and Regards

Hi Kautuk,

I don't want to offend you but Can read the requirements mentioned here  https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/integration/marketing-cloud/target/target-requirem...

Go to the "Enabling the Target Replication Agent" and I am sure you will be able to understand what i am talking about.

this agent is responsible for publishing the target campaign and segment from AEM to Target.

Hi Amit

Thank you so much. It is good add to my knowledge. I was in a perception that replication is how you move that content across servers. We would be most using at least two of the out-of-the-box replication agents provided by Adobe: your default agent activates content from author to publish and your dispatcher flush agent clears your Dispatcher cache.

But 

AEM provides several other replication agents for tasks such as replicating in reverse (publish to author), moving content within the Adobe Marketing Cloud products such as Scene 7 and Test and Target, and static agents for replicating to the file system.

I would ask internal team to answer to this.

Thank and Regards
