Any way to "fake" entitlement? Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
We have an app where we have custom authentication working. Users can sign in and sign out successfully. We want everyone who signs in successfully to have full access to all the app content, and those that aren't signed in will have access to only some content.Since we don't need to keep track of which authenticated users have access to which content (since they all will have access to all content) is there any way to "fake" entitlement without setting up an entitlement server?

Re: Hyperlinks to PDFs in Android in-app browser Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Kirk, based on the info you provided, I did some more testing. It turns out that links to public PDFs on a Web server from an HTML article do work fine in an Android app, and if Acrobat Reader or other PDF renderer is installed on the Device, the reader is launched and the PDF is displayed. But, this doesn't work if the URL for the PDF is an HTTPS url. And, to further complicate matters, some of the non-secure HTTP URLs for some of our PDFs automatically redirect to HTTPS, which also keeps the P...

Force hyperlinks in HTML article to open in device browser Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I have several HTML articles that work great in AEM Mobile. But some of them contain links that we would like to open in the device browser, instead of the built-in app browser. Is there any way to do this?

Hyperlinks to PDFs in Android in-app browser Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I have InDesign and HTML articles that contain a link to a PDF on a web server. When the link is tapped on an iOS device or the Web viewer, the PDF displays fine. But on Android devices the in-app browser is launched, but nothing displays. Setting the link to open in the device browser works fine on both iOS and Android. Is this a limitation of the Android in-app browser? Is there a workaround? I'd rather not use the device browser.

Re: Entitlement problem with Desktop Web Viewer Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
OK, I found the answer...here it is. Maybe this will help someone else out. The "Bundle ID" field in Project Settings > Access > Entitlement & Authentication apparently has be be filled in with the app ID. The text by this field is misleading. It says that if you don't include the bundle ID here, the ID from the app settings will be used. True, but there is no way in the Desktop Web App settings to specify a bundle ID, so it is required here for the desktop web app to work with entitlement.

Salesforce integration? Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Back in the DPS Classic days, Adobe announced integration between DPS and Salesforce. What ever became of that? Is there any connectivity or hooks between Salesforce and AEM Mobile? I have a customer asking about this. They would like to set up restricted distribution, and every one in the company is using Salesforce, and they are wondering if there is any way to connect the two.

Re: Navto hyperlink bug Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Jay, your note prompted me to test this in another, simpler test app that I have. And of course, it worked fine in that app! But, the levels of nesting of the collections and articles are exactly the same as the problem app. The only difference that I can determine between the 2 is that the app in which I'm having problems the collection is not yet published, where in my test app it is published and out of date. But in both cases I'm preflighting. The other difference is that my navto link is qu...

Re: Navto hyperlink bug Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
As I mentioned in my first post, this is happening is custom preflight app builds, built with version 2016.11.The problem exists on iPads and iPhones, but not Android devices.I can verify that I'm using the article name and not the article title. I've tried this with several different articles, just in case there was some obscure problem with the article name, or it was being miss-typed or something.In your tests, did you put the banner on the browse page of the collection that you are linking t...

Navto hyperlink bug Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I'm pretty sure this is a bug:I have a banner with a link defined as "navto://collection/september_october_2016/article/so16_oow_preview". The banner is used on the "september_october_2016" collection browse page. In this context, the link sends the user to the first article in the collection, not the article named in the link.If I put this same link on a banner in a different collection's browse page, it works fine. In other words, it appears that the "navto://collection/[collection_name]/artic...

Re: Easy Way to Add the Gestures API to Muse Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Ashe, 1.2 worked for the iPhone dual orientation app.I did some testing with 1.4 in a simple, fresh file with 2 breakpoints with just a single orientation test app also, and couldn't get it to work there either. Did all my testing on an iPhone 6 in case that matters.

Re: Easy Way to Add the Gestures API to Muse Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
FWIW, I was never able to get version 1.4 or 1.3 to work with content on an iPhone. Worked great with the same HTML article on an iPad. I tried all kinds of sneaky things to see if I could get it to work, but never figured it out. I ended up using version 1.2, and that worked for the project at hand.

Re: Easy Way to Add the Gestures API to Muse Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
This .mucow is working great for me, except when the article is viewed on the iPhone. The same article works perfect on the iPad and Android, but when viewed on an iPhone 6, the AEM Mobile "chrome" can only be displayed with a "long tap" on the screen. Weird. FWIW, this is a dual-orientation app on the iPhone. Perhaps that has something to do with it? I guess I'm just checking to see if anyone has this working successfully on iPhone dual orientation apps?

RSS feeds in HTML articles Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
We need to embed an RSS feed in an HTML article. This is easy enough to do, but I'm having trouble getting any RSS Feed to display properly when the article is viewed in the desktop Web Viewer. The feeds work great on iOS and Android tablets and phones, but the feed content doesn't appear in the Web Viewer. The Safari debugger reports that it couldn't run "insecure content from http://ajax.googleapis/ajax/services/feed/load?"

Re: Android tablets displaying phone content Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
We're having the same problem...starting with 2016.9 build. See my post here: Change in orientation behavior in Android apps Something, somehow, changed with the Android build, but I haven't been able to find any documentation or explanation about this. Bottom line, is that right now all the Android tables that we've tested display browse pages as a large phone.

Yes, I think you nailed it, because in my first tests, I didn't have any additional breakpoints. Once I added breakpoints is when it started working.

Re: Easy Way to Add the Gestures API to Muse Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Peter, I tested this last week, and had a similar experience. It didn't work at first, and I even verified that the AEMM code was preset in the Muse-generated HTML. BUT...then it all of a sudden began working, and has worked ever since! Unfortunately, I was changing so many things at once, that I'm not sure what the trigger that made it work was. However, one (stupid) mistake I made is that I was mistakenly still using the old DPS-era HTML Article packager, instead of the new AEMMobilePackager.a...

Change in orientation behavior in Android apps Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
We previously had an Android app built with version 2016.5, with the Tablet orientation set to landscape, and the Phone orientation set to portrait. With this version, my Android Google Nexus 7 displayed the browse pages in landscape. But when we rebuilt that app with version 2016.9, the Nexus 7 is seen as a phone, and displays the content in portrait. The same thing happens on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 tablet and a Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite tablet. 2 questions: 1. How can we get the app to dis...

Very low quality article images in Web Viewer Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
It seems that there was a change in the quality of article and banner images after the 2016.8 release. They are all display at a low ppi. The same article images have been uploaded at a minimum of 2000px wide, and look perfect on a retina iPad. But the Web viewer looks horrible. Same problem in 3 different apps I've worked on for 3 different companies. Was there a recent change in how article images are automatically downsampled for the Web Viewer?For an example, see this app:https://viewer.aemm...

Specifications for .article format? Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Way back in the DPS days, Adobe "opened" the .folio format, with the purported idea that perhaps people would create other apps that could consume and display folios. I'm wondering if there is anywhere that the .article format is documented, and if there is any intent on it becoming an open format?I have a customer that has asked if they can "wrap" their AEM Mobile app within another "parent" app. I assume this isn't possible, so I'm wondering if skilled programmers could create an app that coul...

Clone, duplicate, or copy a Project Keith_Gilbert - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I know there isn't any way to clone, duplicate, or copy a Project in the AEM Mobile portal. But I'm wondering if there is any way that Adobe can do this on the back end for a customer's account? I have a large customer that has created an app with complex content and layouts, and now they need to create a Dutch version of the app. The Dutch version will use the same layouts, cards, and rules, but some of the content will be different, thus the need for a second app and a second project.
