Learn how to set up a new program and pipeline to deploy the add-on.
In the previous document of the AEM Reference Demos Add-On journey, Understand Reference Demo Add-On Installation, you learned how the installation process of the Reference Demos Add-On works, illustrating how the different pieces work together. You should now:
This article builds on those fundamentals and takes the first configuration step to create a program for testing purposes and uses a pipeline to deploy the add-on content.
This document helps you understand how to set up a new program and pipeline to deploy the add-on. After reading you should:
After logging in to Cloud Manager, you can create a new sandbox program for your testing and demo purposes.
Your user must be a member of the Business Owner role in Cloud Manager in your organization in order to create programs.
Log into Adobe Cloud Manager at my.cloudmanager.adobe.com.
Once logged in ensure that you are in the correct organization by checking it in the top-right corner of the screen. If you are only member of one org, this step is not necessary.
Tap or click Add Program at the top-right of the window.
In the Let’s create your Program dialog, make sure that Adobe Experience Manager is selected under Products and then tap or click Continue.
In the next dialog:
Then tap or click Create.
You are taken to the program overview screen where you can observe the process of your program’s creation. Cloud Manager provides estimates of time remaining. You can navigate away from this screen as the program is created and return later if necessary.
Upon completion, Cloud Manager presents an overview including the environments and pipelines created automatically.
Edit the program details by clicking the program name at the top-left of the page and in the dropdown select Edit Program.
In the Edit Program dialog, switch to the Solutions & Add-ons tab.
On the Solutions & Add-ons tab, expand the Sites entry in the list and then check Reference Demos. If you also wish to create demos for AEM Screens, check the Screens option in the list as well. Tap or click Update.
The add-on is now enabled as an option, but its contents must be deployed to AEM to be available. Back on the program overview page, tap or click Start to start the pipeline to deploy the add-on content to AEM.
The pipeline starts and you are taken to a page detailing the progress of the deployment. You can navigate away from this screen as the program is created and return later if necessary.
Once the pipeline is complete, the add-on and its demo content is available for use in the AEM authoring environment.
Now that you have completed this part of the AEM Reference Demo Add-On journey you should:
Build on this knowledge and continue your AEM Reference Demo Add-On journey by next reviewing the document Create a Demo Site, where you will learn to create a demo site in AEM based on a library of pre-configured templates that were deployed by the pipeline.
