Latest Release Overview video

Watch the October 2022 Release Overview video for a summary of the features added in the 2022.10.0 (October 2022) release.

Experience Manager Sites as a Cloud Service

New features

  • The Personalization Tab for Experience Fragments allows segmentation specification capabilities to the Experience Fragment Editor and the flexibility to create nested Experience Fragments whereby headers and footers variations can be created for multiple segments. Before the launch of this feature, personalization offered by AEM is only available for site pages, but not for Experience Fragments
  • The Content Fragment Console now lets users efficiently manage translated content fragments. A 1-click access is now available to view all the language copies, too. Users can also filter the table view by the locale of their interest.
  • Further reduce page load time for visitors by optimizing image sizes settings in templates. Find more information for the image component at Core WCM Component.

Experience Manager Assets as a Cloud Service

New feature

New feature available in prerelease channel

  • Experience Manager Assets now uses an improved artificial intelligence framework for image Smart Tags. This content intelligence results in better relevancy and precision of Smart Tags available to all image assets on ingestion. In addition, orientation information is populated in cq:tags, which enables better Search results using the Orientation filter.
  • Experience Manager Assets now supports SAS Token in addition to the Access Key for authentication while connecting to Azure Blob Storage data source for ingesting assets using the Bulk Import tool.

Experience Manager Forms as a Cloud Service

New features

  • Adaptive Forms wizard: Experience Manager Forms provides business user friendly wizard to quickly author Adaptive Forms. The wizard has a quick tab navigation to easily select pre-configured template, styling, fields, and submission options to create an adaptive form. This release brings following improvements to the wizard:
    • Select or deselect fields: The wizard allows you to create an Adaptive Form based on JSON and Form Data Model schemas. You can now select subset of fields within a schema to include in an Adaptive Form. The selected fields are converted to corresponding Adaptive Form data capture components to quickly create the desired adaptive forms.
    • Use Static Templates: Customers with existing investments in legacy-static templates can continue their journey of cloud adoption by using static templates in the wizard to create adaptive forms. This provides additional time to customers to migrate old static templates to modern editable templates.
  • Remove hidden fields from a Document of Record (DoR) while server-side processing: You can generate the document of record PDF for end users containing only those fields which were visible to them during data capture experience. Upon form submission, the server validates which fields were hidden to the end user based on submitted data and excludes from document of record for consistency.

New features available in prerelease channel

  • Adaptive Forms template editor - Template editor lets you pre-define the basic structure and appearance of Adaptive Forms of an organization. This release brings following improvements to the template editor:
    • Form Data Model in template editor - You can associate a Form Data Model schema to an Adaptive Form template in the template editor. It helps reduce the time taken to create an Adaptive Form. The option is also added to Adaptive Forms editor to let users select or change Form Data Model for existing forms.
    • Document of Record in template editor - You can now standardize Document of Record generation for all forms created using a template. This ability helps enhance compliance and standardization for organization requirements.
  • Launch the Adaptive Form wizard from a AEM Sites Page - AEM Sites page has extended support for Adaptive Forms. You can now create a new Adaptive Form or embed an existing Adaptive Form while remaining on AEM Sites page.
  • Change display alignment for checkboxes and radio button in Document of Record: You can now set the desired alignment (Horizontal, Vertical, Same as Adaptive Forms) for checkbox and radio button on the Document of Record. This option determines the positioning of checkbox and radio button options in the Document of Record.

Experience Manager as a Cloud Service Foundation

New features

  • Experience Manager as a Cloud Service (Author Service) is now integrated with Unified Shell to improve the user experience and unify it with all the other Experience Cloud applications. See Experience Manager as a Cloud Service on Unified Shell for more details.
  • As previously mentioned in the release notes, using the replication agent administrator screen or replication API for distributing content packages larger than 10 MB (nodes with properties, not including binaries) is deprecated. This limit will be enforced in the coming days. See Manage Publication or the Publish Content Tree workflow for the suggested approaches for replicating these large content packages.
  • Dispatcher configuration now references a file that lists common marketing campaign query parameters. Customers can choose to uncomment the parameters that are relevant to them, resulting in better caching. See Marketing campaign parameters for more details.

Cloud Manager

New features

  • Notifications for Experience Manager maintenance updates now appear in the Cloud Manager user interface. This change is being rolled out in a phased manner in the weeks following the 2022.12.0 release.
  • When an ingestion by way of the CTT (Content Transfer Tool) is in progress, the environment status in both the developer console and in Cloud Manager now displays as Ingestion in Progress.
  • Improvements to the availability and reliability of Cloud Manager pipelines were made.
