I have a requirement to copy multiple pages from one location to another

i.e Page 1-10 has multiple components - Out of which one 1 component need to be copied from one path to another(It should be able to override if existing)

Is there any OOO functionality where i could select multiple pages and then a source path and destination path - And then the copying takes place automatically without any performance issue ?

@AEMnewbie I agree with @Arun_Patidar and @Shashi_Mulugu , but then since you told you don't want to write one time script, as your authors might be the one who is going to do this , I would say create a custom tools page which will be like a utility page for the authors. In the way you think best suits for the authors give them the option to choose the components from the page which they want to copy or move. It will totally depend on your requirement, but that would be one way to do it I guess.

So you want to update content but not want to move actual pages? Is this correct?

You can write a groovy script and update components on the page. it is easy and fast.

You can use Page Relocator utility of ACS commons for this bulk copy task. For more details please see - https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/features/mcp/subpages/tools.html

You can use rollout feature in aem to rollout pages from one place to another but it would have inheritance from your source location.

@AEMnewbie As of I know no OOTB functionality for this.. except doing some custom coding.

 

Why can't you use MSM setup for such a requirement so that you can always override components from parent to child(ofcourse with relationship intact)
