This guide helps identify the areas you need to update for the Experience Manager add-on migration.
CIF add-on is available for AEM 6.5 via the Software Distribution portal. It is compatible and provides the same features as the CIF add-on for Experience Manager as a Cloud Service.
To support projects deploying CIF, Adobe provides AEM CIF Core Components.
Importing product catalog data is not supported by the CIF add-on. Using the CIF add-on principals, product & catalog requests are on-demand via real-time calls to an external commerce solution. Go to chapter Integrating to learn more about integrating a commerce solution.
If no real-time APIs are available, an external product cache with APIs should be used for the integration. Example Magento open-source.
If you use catalog blueprint with Classic CIF, you need to update the product catalog workflow. The CIF add-on now renders product catalog experiences on-the-fly using AEM catalog templates. No replication of product data or product pages is required anymore.
Client-side requests for non-cacheable data and interactions (for example add-to-cart, search) should go directly to the commerce endpoint (either commerce solution or integration layer) via CDN / Dispatcher. Remove any calls where AEM was just a proxy.
