To access a specific page directly from the publish instance without using the dispatcher

Hi All

 

We need to access a specific page directly from the publish instance without using the dispatcher, while allowing other pages to continue being served through the dispatcher.
How to do that ? can you anyone pls provide details ..

Hi @KannanC ,

You can achieve this in multiple ways:
     

The /rules property controls which documents are cached according to the document path. Regardless of the /rules property, Dispatcher never caches a document in the following circumstances:

  • Request URI contains a question mark (?).

    • Indicates a dynamic page, such as a search result that does not need to be cached.
  • The file extension is missing.

    • The web server needs the extension to determine the document type (the MIME-type).
  • The authentication header is set (configurable).

  • If the AEM instance responds with the following headers:

    • no-cache
    • no-store
    • must-revalidate

      If you want handle this through AEM backend then below are the 2 options.

      1. At component level component model class.

      @Model(adaptables = SlingHttpServletRequest.class, defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL)
      public class Component{

      @Inject
      private SlingHttpServletResponse response;

      @PostConstruct
      protected void init() {
      response.setHeader("Dispatcher", "no-cache");
      }
      }

       

      2. At page level, now you can call this page in body html based on some condition:

      @Model(adaptables = SlingHttpServletRequest.class, defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL)
      public class PageMOdel {

      @Inject
      private SlingHttpServletResponse response;

      @PostConstruct
      protected void init() {
      response.setHeader("Dispatcher", "no-cache");
      }
      }

Hello

you can access a specific page directly from the publish instance, you can directly use the publish instance URL followed by the page's path. but generally bypassing the dispatcher isn't usually recommended for a production environment for multiple reasons like Caching and Load Balancing etc.

if you still want to access the specific page you can try the below approach 

http://<publish-server-ip>:<port>/content/project/test.html

Replace <publish-server-ip> and <port> with the IP and port number for your publish instance.

Hi @KannanC ,

To bypass a specific page from dispatcher you can do the following.
I am assuming the page to bypass is '/content/myProject/us/en/home'

APPROACH 1
1. Access your dispatcher configuration file (often named dispatcher.any).
2. Add a rule to exclude caching for the specific page. This prevents the dispatcher from intercepting requests for this page.
/excludePage
{
         /glob "/content/myProject/us/en/home"
}
/excludePage: This directive is used to define URLs that should be excluded from the dispatcher.

APPROACH 2
You can set up a rule within the /filter section to bypass the dispatcher for a particular URL.
/filter
{
    /0001
    {
        /glob "/content/myProject/us/en/home*"
        /type "deny"
     }
}


Thanks

Hi @KannanC ,

 

I think you can use ignoreUrlParams which helps to by pass the despatcher cache.

 

/ignoreUrlParams

{

  /001{ /glob "*" /type "allow"}

  /002 { /glob "specific page ID" /type "deny"}

}

 

with above rule, URL having that specific page ID always fetches the latest content from the AEM instance.
