AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated. For further details, see our technical support periods. Find the supported versions here.

Create a BrightEdge cloud configuration so that AEM can connect using the credentials of your BrightEdge account. You can create multiple configurations if you use multiple accounts.

When you create the configuration, you specify a title. The title should be descriptive so that people can correlate the configuration with the BrightEdge account. When a page author or administrator associaties a web page with the BrightEdge account, this title is presented in a drop-down list.

  1. On the rail, click Tools > Operations > Cloud > Cloud Services.

  2. Click the link that appears in the BrightEdge Content Optimizer section. Whether a BrightEdge configuration has been created determines the link text:

    • Configure Now: This link appears when no coniguration has been created.
    • Show Configurations: This link appears when one or more configurations have been created.


  3. If you clicked Show Configurations, click the + link beside Available Configurations.

  4. Type a title for the configuration. Optionally, type a name for the node that is used to store the configuration in the repository. Click Create.

  5. In the BrightEdge Content Optimizer Configuration dialog, type the user name and password of the BrightEdge account, and then click OK.
