Debugging AEM as a Cloud Service with Repository Browser

Repository Browser is a powerful tool that provides visibility into AEM’s underlying data store, allowing for easy debugging of AEM as a Cloud Service environment. Repository Browser supports a read-only view of the resources and properties of AEM on Production, Stage, and Development, as well as Author, Publish, and Preview services.

Repository Browser is ONLY available on AEM as a Cloud Service environments (use CRXDE Lite to debug the local AEM SDK).

  1. Ensure that your user has the required access
  2. Log in to Cloud Manager
  3. Select the Program containing the AEM as a Cloud Service environment to debug

  7. Select Open Repository Browser

The Repository Browser opens for the selected service tier (Author, Publish, or Preview) in a read-only mode, displaying resources and properties your user has access to.
