I'm doing the above migration (we have 6.5) and I have moved the /etc/clientlibs to the ui.apps as required.
I have a bunch of other custom stuff in a directory called /etc/<our site>
These are some "Pages" that contain configuration used by some of our components i.e. not ordinary pages for Editors to use. Also some files used by the robots/sitemap etc
My question is :
Is it o.k. to leave them in /etc/ ? I know that Adobe seems to be encouraging people to stop making /etc a catch-all place for random stuff.
I don't want to move them to /content because they mess up the sites page.
Solved! Go to Solution.
For customers with existing code bases, it is critical to go through the repository restructuring exercise described in AEM documentation to ensure that content formerly under the /etc is moved to the right location.
I would not move stuff to /apps, because that's normally read-only and not writeable (except for administrator group by default); in AEM as a Cloud Service it's not writable at all during runtime.
If your configuration is supposed to be changed during runtime I would store it either in /content or /conf.
