Learning Path for AEM Users


This document helps your AEM as a Cloud Service Content Authors to get access to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM).

After reading you should understand how to:

  • Access Cloud Manager
  • Access AEM as a Cloud Service instance
  • Author content for AEM as a Cloud Service


Accessing AEM as a Cloud Service is an important first step in the AEM cloud journey for Content Authors and AEM Users. Having timely access means that you do not lose out on productivity and your end users are that much closer to transformative digital experiences.

Every member of your team assigned to AEM User product profile by your system administrator will have (readonly) access to Cloud Manager. Of course, if these users have also been assigned to Cloud Manager Product Profiles, then they will have the sum of these permissions across AEM as a Cloud Service and Cloud Manager.


Your System Administrator must have completed all of the necessary steps and successfully assigned you to AEM Users product profile when setting up your AEM as a Cloud Service team.
