Reverse Replication failing for node under /etc in AEM 6.2

Level 2
Level 2


I have encountered an  issue in reverse replication workflow.

I see that reverse replication is failing  saying path not found(/etc/vod) in spite of node being present. javax.jcr.PathNotFoundException: /etc/vod



        at com.adobe.granite.workflow.core.job.HandlerBase.executeProcess(

        at com.adobe.granite.workflow.core.job.JobHandler.process(





        at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(

        at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$


I see that Reverse Replication is initiated by "workflow-service" user also I see from logs that another service user called  "wcm-workflow-service" is involved.

I tried giving  both the service users Read Permission to etc/vod

But did not seem to resolve this issue.

I continued with my debug

I found that the Reverse Replication  workflow has process  "ReplicatePageProcess"  . I peeked in to the source code .

I see that "device-identification-service" is used to get serviceSession , So i gave "device-identification-service" Read Permission to /etc/vod.

Now the reverse replication workflow completes successfully.

Is it the approach correct to update ACL of "device-identification-service"  to provide read permission to  /etc/vod to get this resolved.

Can some one suggest.

Have you seen this in an AEM Doc topic or was that simply reversed engineered?

Could not find any Info on how to fix this in AEM doc.

It was reverse engineered .

As i stated earlier i had to give "device-identification-service" permission to  access /etc/<custom_node> .

My question was more to confirm is this approach correct
