Experience Manager Assets uses Adobe Sensei AI capabilities to now distinguish between colors in an image and apply those as tags automatically on ingestion. These tags enable enhanced Search experience, based on image color composition. You can configure the number of colors, within a range of one to 40, that are tagged to an image so that you can search for images based on those colors later.

Experience Manager Forms as a Cloud Service

New features available in Forms prerelease channel

  • Integrate Adaptive Forms with Microsoft® Power Automate: You can now configure an Adaptive Form to run a Microsoft® Power Automate Cloud Flow on submission.

It helps you build custom data capture experience while harnessing the power of Microsoft® Power Automate to build business logics around captured data and automate customer workflows.

  • Wizard to create an Adaptive Form: You can use business user-friendly wizard to quickly author Adaptive Forms. The wizard provides a quick tab navigation to easily select pre-configured template, styling, fields, and submission options to create an adaptive form.

Experience Manager as a Cloud Service Foundation

What is New

  • The “Add tree” option under the replication agent admin screen’s Distribute tab, which was previously announced as deprecated, was removed June 20, 2022 or soon thereafter. Packages with a tree hierarchy of content should instead be replicated using Manage Publication or the Publish Content Tree workflow.

  • Using the replication agent admin screen or replication API for distributing content packages larger than 10 MB (nodes with properties, not including binaries) is deprecated and enforced on September 12, 2022 or soon thereafter. Instead, Manage Publication or the Publish Content Tree workflow must be used to replicate these large content packages. In July, a warning message will appear in the replication agent admin screen’s Distribute tab if attempting to replicate these large content packages and also in the AEM error log whenever the replication API is used to replicate these large content packages. In September, warnings were replaced by errors. Adjust your processes accordingly.

  • AEM as a Cloud Service is now integrated with Unified Shell to improve the user experience and unify it with all the other Experience Cloud applications. See AEM as a Cloud Service on Unified Shell for more details.

Experience Manager as a Cloud Service Foundation Security

TLS 1.0, 1.1 deprecation

Starting June 30, 2022, Experience Manager as a Cloud Service will require a more secure network communication and data exchange with users systems. AEM will 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.
