In AEM as Cloud Service, Page deleted in author doesn't get removed from Preview Instance


Level 1

In AEM as Cloud Service, whenever user deletes a particular page in author instance, page is automatically removed from Publish instance too and we can see a DELETE operation invoked from author to publish instance but the same doesn't work with Preview instance.

Page stays in Preview instance - Is this the expected product behavior?

Please share your thoughts, thanks.

Maybe issue is caching, Please try to empty cache and hard reload and then try.

thanks for the response Shivam,

No shouldn't be a caching issue. two reasons, one we have disabled caching on preview instance and second is we have a utility servlet to see the pages on preview instance.

All pages deleted in author are still present in preview instance.


Question - Is this the expected behavior that pages deleted in author will be removed from publish but not preview?

There is no way to delete the page from preview server. You have to always un-publish that from preview or publish server, before deleting that content from author. You could un-publish the page from preview server using manager publication option.
