Remove editor screen from publish instance



Hello All,

I have created one site and published it into the publish server.

but if i give editor.html the URL I can edit the page..

So how can I remove or restrict a user to edit page or template in publish instance.

Thank you

That is still possible, but unless if you are logged in, you cannot edit the page.

If you follow the AEM security checklist, it lists some URLs which should be blocked on the dispatcher level to prevent exactly this usecase.

sumeetc5738183​ Thank you  brother. I saw it is in disable mode but what if I want to delete that?

Right now if I go to editor.html it will not allow me to edit content just like we-retail site but what If I want to disable or remove it?

as far as I get to know that if I am not logged in into CRX I wont be able to hit editor.html URL.

Anyways thank you for the response



Yes gauravb41175071

I have also gone through the WE-Retail Site

yes  you are right

we-retail site content is not editable at publish instance.

So do you have any idea how can we hide editor console from publish instance?




I'm able to reproduce this behavior in 6.4.3 but I'm not sure if it is expected or a bug.

http://localhost:4503/editor.html/content/we-retail/us/en.html displays the "Edit" mode but doesn't load the Editor layer on page and each component hence the components are not editable irrespective of authenticated vs unauthenticated users on publish server.



Hello Prince,

Thank you for response I have checked and it looks like

Apache Sling Settings

Sling ID = f3541358-985d-403e-91e3-031107636d30

Sling Name = Instance f3541358-985d-403e-91e3-031107636d30

Sling Description = Instance with id f3541358-985d-403e-91e3-031107636d30 and run modes [s7connect, crx3, samplecontent, publish, crx3tar]

Sling Home = D:\projects\AEM Demo Site\publish-server\crx-quickstart

Sling Home URL = file:/D:/projects/AEM%20Demo%20Site/publish-server/crx-quickstart/

Run Modes = [s7connect, crx3, samplecontent, publish, crx3tar]

AEM Instance in publish mode.

What other configuration require ?



Can you first check if your server is running in publish instance or not?

you can check it under

system/console then click on status and Sling settings.

check the Run modes there. if it is an author or publisher.
