The Product Update wizard is a guided, step-by-step experience for Cloud Manager customers who are upgrading to the latest Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.5. It streamlines the end-to-end process, ensures adherence to AEM best practices using Cloud Manager’s CI/CD framework and built-in automated testing.

The wizard includes five phases that guides the user during an AEM product update:

  • Evaluation
  • Remediation
  • Execution
  • Validation
  • Completion

Using Product Update Wizard


Customers on-boarded to Cloud Manager and eligible to upgrade to AEM 6.5 will be able to leverage the Product Update wizard. Contact your Customer Success Engineer (CSE) for more details.

  1. You will receive a pulse notification via Cloud Manager informing you that AEM 6.5 is available to your program.

  2. An AEM 6.5 Update card displays on the overview screen of Cloud Manager. This card will help track which phase of the update process you are currently in and will inform you as to what the next step to be taken is. Select Start Update to launch the wizard.

    The wizard now displays the first phase of AEM 6.5 Update process as seen in the Evaluation Phase.
