Communications - Document Manipulation APIs support in Forms as a Cloud Service SDK: Document Manipulation APIs help to combine, rearrange, and validate PDF documents. You can now use Communications - Document Generation APIs on a local development environment with the help of AEM Forms as a Cloud Service SDK.
Use custom XCI for generating a Document of Record: You can now use a custom XCI file to set various properties of a Document of Record. It overrides the master XCI with the custom changes. It provides more control over the generation of Documents of Record, increasing personalization, and customization opportunities.
Use invisible CAPTCHA in an adaptive form: You can use the invisible CAPTCHA to show the CAPTCHA challenge only in the case of a suspicious activity. If no suspicious activity is found the CAPTCHA challenge is not displayed. It helps assess human form completion without checkbox requirements, reduce customization efforts, and improve the end-user experience.
Form Data Model Configurations: You can now reuse Form Data Model configurations across environments, simplifying data integrations and reducing IT costs.
The AEM as a Cloud Service SDK Build Analyzer Maven Plugin detects problems in a maven project, including missing dependencies. It gives developers an opportunity to discover issues during local development, well before deploying to Cloud environments with Cloud Manager.
A new analyzer has been recently added:
content-packages-validation- validates for well formed content syntax and structure for packages that is installed during deployment
It is strongly recommended to update your maven project with the latest version of the analyzer or include the analyzer if you haven’t yet done so. For more information, see the documentation here.
Starting June 30, 2022, Experience Manager as a Cloud Service will require a more secure network communication and data exchange with users systems. AEM intends to use exclusively Transport Layer Security (TLS), 1.2 protocol. Older TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 are now deprecated.
If you continue to use older versions of TLS as 1.0, 1.1, you could potentially lose access to Experience Manager as a Cloud Service.
