Reverse replication issues

Avatar

Level 3

Hello all, 

We are trying to activate the reverse replication, but we are facing some issues.

When 'On Modification' and 'On Distribute' is active the content is replicated back to author, but deactivating a page, also deletes it from author mode.

When only 'On Distribute' is active, none of the content is replicated back to author. Even our pages with cq:distribute, cq:lastModified and cq:lastModifiedBy.

 

I checked our log files and I am sure the reverse replication is duplicating the deactivate event and deleting the page from author instance.

I also read the documentation and tutorials: 

https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/kb/HowToUseReverseReplication.html

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/deploy/configuring/replication.html

https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/kb/HowToUseReverseReplication.html

 

Based on the documentation, if I check 'On Distribute' only pages marked with cq:distribute should be used, but this seems to be ignored without 'On Modification'.

And checking 'On Modification' causes the pages to be deleted from author instance when deactivation.

I'm assuming you've read this section :

Replication Agents - Out of the Box

  • Reverse Replication
    Used for replicating from publish to author.  As of AEM 6.1, reverse replication is not used for Communities features, such as forums, blogs, and comments.  It is effectively disabled as the outbox is not enabled.  Use of reverse replication would require custom configuration.

I do not have expertise in configuring reverse replication, but I assume you would need to do more than just checking boxes.

Hi,

Sorry to say, but the problem description isn't much clear to me. What is the exact problem you are facing in reverse replication?. Can you share steps what are you doing and what do you expect?.

Good to mention AEM version as well.

Hello Jitendra,

We are using AEM 6.1.

Issue with reverse replication:

When  'On Modification' and 'On Distribute' is checked on reverse replication agent:

Behavior: content is replicated when page is update back to author instance correctly

Issue: Deactivating a page also deletes it from author instance

 

When 'On Distribute' is checked and  'On Modification' is not checked on reverse replication agent:

Behavior: content is replicated when page is created

Issue: Updating a page doesn't update in author instance

Is it clearer now?

Thank you for the help

Hello Opkar Gill,

Users subscribe to receive updates from our portal in the publish environment.

The reverse replication sends the information to the author and the author sincronize between the publish farms.

The author sends an email using the list of users subscribed.

May I ask how you ended up resolving this issue? I'm currently running into the same problem in AEM 6.2.

Deactivated content is being removed from the author instance and activated content is also being reverse replicated back to the author (showing as modified by replicator-service).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Facing the same problem can you tell me how did you solve it?. The accepted answer does contain links but they are not working.
