You can create a scheduled cron job to activate the pages programmatically (see code sample for activation shared by @Kautuksahni). You can define the number of pages to activate in one run as configuration property of the job. 

Below are some of the example of cron jobs -

Hi 

Option 1:- Using Curl

Activate

curl -u admin:admin -X POST -F path="/content/path/to/page" -F cmd="activate" http://localhost:4502/bin/replicate.json

Link:- https://gist.github.com/sergeimuller/2916697

 

Option 2:- Use Replicator OSGi service:

//

@Component public class MyComponent { @Reference private Replicator replicator; private void activatePage(Session session) { //... replicator.replicate(session, ReplicationActionType.ACTIVATE, pathToPage); //... } }

I hope this would help you.

Thanks and Regards

@Sh1ju ,

The integration Spring batch framework with AEM is the right solution for dealing with batch processing. This isn't hard to integrate because AEM already has spring stuff.

Java Executer Framework for multithreading implementation also fits in your case.

 Here is the article to start with https://dzone.com/articles/spring-batch-hello-world-1

Will this code activate these pages in 'batches' ?

@Kunal23,

In my opinion, one cron job/Task would not be able to activate 1k pages. It would be too slow & time consuming process. Without batch process/ multithreading, we can't achieve ideal solution.

Well, page activation is not a resource intensive task as it just queues the pages for activation in replication agent queue. Also, the cron job is going to run in the background as a separate thread and in my opinion is a simple solution to achieve this.
