@serhiiko Is it a one time distribution or you want to set up for regular distribution automatically?

Please check the below modes you can set the SCD

Hi, thanks for answer! 

It should be regular distribution by click or scheduling (we have discussion about it). One tool is packing JSON and I need to push it to second instance for parsing. I've never worked with SCD before. If I understood correctly I need to write custom class for this feature. Right?

Hi @serhiiko!

Sling Content Distribution is certainly one way to get content from one AEM instance to another. @Saravanan_Dharmaraj already outlined good starting points for SCD if you are already clear that this is the optimal approach to solve your business requirements.

 

Depending on your use case, there might also be other options.

  • Is your requirement about JSON files stored as such on the source AEM instance?
  • Or are the JSON files the result of a content export from that instance?
  • Is it AEM content exposed in JSON format (e. g. through model exporter, Content Fragments or similar)?

Providing a bit more context on your business requirement would allow for better recommendations on the right approach here.

 

Hope that helps!
