The Core Component Experience Fragment Component allows the content author to place an experience fragment variation on a page while supporting a localized site structure.
The Core Component Experience Fragment Component allows the content author to select from existing experience fragment variations and place one on the content page. The Experience Fragment component also supports a localized site structure.
The current version of the Experience Fragment Component is v2, which was introduced with release 2.18.0 of the Core Components in February 2022, and is described in this document.
The following table details all supported versions of the component, the AEM versions with which the versions of the component is compatible, and links to documentation for previous versions.
|Component Version||AEM 6.4||AEM 6.5||AEM as a Cloud Service|
For more information about Core Component versions and releases, see the document Core Components Versions.
The Experience Fragment Component is adaptive to localized site structures and renders the proper experience fragment based on the localization of the page. To do this, the experience fragment must meet the following conditions.
/content/experience-fragmentsthat follows the same patterns as the site below
/content/<site>including using the same component names.
In this case, the fragment with the same localization (language, blueprint, or live copy) as the current page will be rendered as part of the template.
This behavior is limited to Experience Fragment Components added to templates. Experience Fragment Components added to individual content pages will render the exact experience fragment renditions configured within the component.
Let’s say that your content looks something like this:
/content +-- experience-fragments \-- wknd +-- language-masters +-- us +-- en +-- footerTextXf \-- headerTextXf \-- es +-- footerTextXf \-- headerTextXf \-- ch +-- de +-- footerTextXf \-- headerTextXf +-- fr +-- footerTextXf \-- headerTextXf \-- it +-- footerTextXf \-- headerTextXf +-- wknd +-- language-masters +-- us +-- en \-- es +-- ch +-- de +-- fr \-- it +-- wknd-events \-- wknd-shop
Notice that the structure below
/content/experience-fragments/wknd mirrors the structure of
In this case, if the Experience Fragment component
/content/experience-fragments/wknd/us/en/footerTextXf is placed on a template, the localized pages created based on that template will automatically render the localized experience fragment that corresponds to the localized content page.
So if you navigate to a content page under
/content/wknd/ch/de that uses the same template,
/content/experience-fragments/wknd/ch/de/footerTextXf will be rendered instead of
The Experience Fragment Component will attempt to find a corresponding localized component in the following order.

The latest technical documentation about the Experience Fragment Component can be found on GitHub.
Further details about developing Core Components can be found in the Core Components developer documentation.
The configure dialog allows the content author to select the experience fragment variation that should be rendered on the page.
Use the Open Selection Dialog button to open the component selector to choose which experience fragment component variation to add to the content page.
If you add the Experience Fragment Component to a template, note that it will be automatically localized provided that the Experience Fragments are localized, so what is rendered on the page may vary from the component you explicitly select. See the example above for more information.
You can also define an ID. This option allows to control the unique identifier of the component in the HTML and in the Data Layer.
The Experience Fragment Component supports the AEM Style System..
Use the drop-down to select the styles that you want to apply to the component. Selections made in the edit dialog have the same effect as those chosen from the component toolbar.
Styles must be configured for this component in the design dialog in order for the drop down menu to be available.
The design dialog allows the template author to define the options available to the content author who uses the Experience Fragment Component and the defaults set when placing the Experience Fragment Component.
