hi guys,

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.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Fiona

Hi,

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.

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.

@fionas76543059 i think it is ok to keep stuff in /etc untill they are identified by Adobe to be moved to a different location such as clientlibs, designs to /apps, workflows to /conf etc.
