How to transfer users with assgined group between AEM6 author node?


Level 2

Hi guys,

I'd like to transfer users with assgined groups to another AEM author node(AEM6 with SP2).

My steps list below
1. Create path "myusers" under /home/users/ in CRX via crxde lite
2. Go to  useradmin create new user named "test-user", choose path "/home/users/myusers/", and set "Administrators" grouop to it.
3. Build a package from package manager with settings:

  •     Filter Root Path: /home/users/myusers
  •     Rules exclude: /home/users/myusers/.*/.tokens
  •     AC Handling: Ignore/Overwrite/Merge

4. Upload/Install this built package to another AEM author node.

Here is the problem: the user "test-user" is imported , however the group "Administrators" is not set with it.

In Step 3 I have tried these 3 AC Handling options ,none of them works.

Any idea?  And where are the group and user relationships stored?

Thanks a lot,

Thanks Opkar,


I just read this article. So it seems that I have to  package the whole /home rather than specify path like "home/users/myusers".

I don't have an AEM environment at the moment. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

And do you think set AC handling with "Merge" will work as well?

I read article which mentioned:

"Merge: Tries to merge access control provided with the package with the one on the target. This is currently not fully supported and behaves like Overwrite for existing ACLs. ACLs not in the package are retained."

Good morning Opkar,

Your solution does the job and setting AC handling with "Merge" does it as well.

Thanks a lot ,
