Web notifications for AEM sites

Avatar

Is there any AEM OOTB solutions to create and send web notifications in AEM sites? I was wondering if there's something similar to ACS Commons System Notifications feature, https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/system-notifications/index.html... to achieve this.

Still, I am not clear on which type of "alerts" you are trying to capture, Adobe I/O will help you if you are planning to cover alerts that are related to AEM, for example, if assets are uploaded, if rendition is created, or any action which hits AEM server (custom event), etc. But if you are trying to capture metrics for a page such as loading time, CFL, etc. Adobe I/O won't help in this case.

Would you mind elaborating more about which type of events? But in short, the answer is: Yes, you could use Adobe I/O which uses an event/subscribe pattern. There are ootb events and also you can create custom ones.

I'm looking towards having some notification system in place to alert the site visitors about any time sensitive alerts related to business. Something that could be easily delivered to the end user without the need of creating an AEM page for the same.

@EstebanBustamante Any suggestions? I haven't checked out Adobe I/O events in details, but do you think it's what I should look into? Or should I explore some third party web notification services or would it be better to have some custom AEM implementation(My alignment is towards a custom solution. The reason being if we use some third party services for web notifications it would be dependant on users browser settings. Since these alerts are critical to the end users I'm not sure if I can rely completely on web notifications, but rather build a custom AEM solution). Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
