Hi All,

We are migrating from CQ5.6.1 to AEM 6.2. We have some usergenerated images, which user adds from the website like user profile photo and the photos that gets uploaded from publish side for blog post.

Currently they get stored under /content/dam/usergenerated., now we are thinking to store in Mongo to avoid the use of FRR to replicate across all the publish and author instances.

But not sure that it is recommended to store images in MongoDB? If anyone is already doing that, Please share the experience and how you implemented that.

Please share the advantages and disadvantage of storing the images in Mongo DB

Thanks,

Monika

Hi JK,

This response is helpful, may I please extend the query from Monika to ask if the Social Component Framework allows for upload of videos as User Generated Content too ?

If no, then is it possible to please point me to a documentation that states something like this?

Thanks in anticipation!

Regards,

Hemant Bellani
