Externalizer setup

Day CQ Link Externalizer


AEM’s externalizer should be set up on both AEM Author and AEM Publish, to map the publish runmode to the publicly accessible domain used to access AEM Publish.

In this video we use /etc/hosts to spoof to resolve to localhost, and use a basic AEM Dispatcher configuration to allow to front AEM Publish.
