Lock Publishing before major announcements

Avatar

Level 3

Hello all,

The scenario is that a major announcement will be posted on an AEM website soon. Authors need to be able to edit and roll out specific pages on Author, but should not activate them until a specific date/time. There is concern that authors may accidentally activate those pages.

How do other companies / groups handle this situation in AEM?

I've considered removing permission for users to activate that specific page, but that gets cumbersome when the number of pages and live copies increases. We may end up going with that option on the whole site, unless there are other options available. Locking the page doesn't work because they still need to edit it. 

Any input is helpful - thank you!

In that case, you can remove the read permission for the replication agent transport user on the pages that you don't want to get published.

If you want to lock down activation for all the pages, how about disabling the replication agents?

That's one option - the trouble is some groups will still need to replicate pages, while others we need to prevent accidental publishing
