How to Set Up Docker Dispatcher the same as Cloud Manager by Initialyze


The dispatcher module in Adobe Experience Manager can be used for security, caching, load balancing, reverse proxy, and sorting through client requests to AEM publishing instances. This load balancing tool can be used alongside an enterprise-class web server.

By blocking access from unknown sources using filters, dispatchers protect your AEM publish servers from threats and attacks. In short, dispatchers are the lens through which users will view content on the AEM publisher. In this article, we’ll be guiding you on how to set up a Docker Dispatcher in a simple manner. But before we jump right in, let’s understand the essence of dispatchers for AEM.

The Essence of Dispatchers for Your Local AEM
More often than not we’ve seen the DevOps teams as the primary owner and maintainer of dispatcher configuration. They also need to consult and rely on Developers to provide certain application specific requirements and details.

Developers generally don’t set up their own dispatchers locally. They don’t have full visibility or clarity into the entire dispatcher configuration especially if it’s not stored in a code repository accessible to them. This disconnect caused by the separation of responsibilities in some teams often leads to inconsistencies in environments and major headaches and delays when troubleshooting live issues.

In an ideal world defining and maintaining dispatcher configuration should be a shared responsibility between DevOps team and Dev team. The dispatcher configurations should be committed into GIT accessible to both teams. This is the standard pattern now even demonstrated by the new projects generated by the Archetype wherein the dispatcher configuration is committed in the same repo as code.

Developers can easily deploy the dispatcher configuration stored in a git repo to a local docker image thus giving them a production-like dispatcher set up locally.

In this article, we will walk through how to set up docker dispatcher the same as cloud manager in just a few minutes.
