Starting from AEM 6.4, /etc/design is not used like it was in previous versions of AEM. As per repository restructuring guide [0], you need to move /etc/design to the following:





For any Designs that are managed in SCM, and not written to at run-time via Design Dialogs.
  1. Copy the designs from the Previous Location to the New Location (/apps).
  2. Convert any CSS, JavaScript and static resources in the Design to a Client Library with allowProxy = true .
  3. Update references to the Previous Location in the cq : designPath property.
  4. Update any Pages referencing the Previous Location to use the new Client Library category (this requires updating Page implementation code).
  5. Update AEM Dispatcher rules to allow the serving of Client Libraries via the /etc.clientlibs/.. proxy servlet. See [0] for more details.
