Configuring Enablement Features configuring-enablement-features

AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated.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.

Overview overview

The enablement features provide the ability to create enablement communities.

  • This feature requires additional licensing for use in a production environment.

Use of the enablement features requires the following:

Installation of:

    Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for e-learning. SCORM also defines how content may be packaged into a transferable ZIP file.

  • MySQL
    MySQL is a relational database primarily used for SCORM tracking and reporting data for Enablement, as well as tables for tracking video progress. The SCORM for enablement feature pack requires the MySQL JDBC driver.

  • FFmpeg
    FFmpeg is a solution for converting and streaming audio and video and, when installed, is used for proper transcoding of Video Assets. For enablement communities, it is used in the author environment to obtain metadata for uploaded resources as well as generate a thumbnail to display when listing the resource.

Setup of:

  • Community Managers
    For enablement communities, only members of the Community Enablement Managers user group may be assigned the role of *Community Site* Enablement Manager, whose permissions may include content creation, assignments, and member management in the publish environment.

Optional configuration of:

  • Adobe Analytics
    Integration with Adobe Analytics adds comprehensive reporting features and supports the Video Heartbeat addtion to Analytics.

  • Dispatcher

On any server:

  1. install MySQL, MySQL Workbench

  2. install MySQL databases
    Execute SQL scripts downloaded from author instance

  1. configure JDBC Connections pool
    Use Web Console (configMgr): http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr

  2. configure SCORM engine service
    Use Web Console (configMgr): http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr

  3. configure CSRF filters
