Using AEM 5.6.1

Is there functionality to send a preview link of a page to others via email to review before publishing

There should be some best practice on how to do such things in AEM?

 

Thanks in advance!

HI,

 

Yes you could send a preview link via email before publishing. Just implement a publishing workflow and configure the emails. The user group or users would get an email notification then they could preview and review the changes and approve the publishing. Please go through the below links for more details.

Now as far as the best practices are concerned its always better to publish your content through proper workflow, so that any mistakes would not go directly in the production publish server directly without proper review.

 

Thanks

Just create a work has service step which sends the preview link (URL without cf#) of the author instance.

Note: The User should have access to the author instance.
