AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated.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

This page explains how to build a custom page template that uses Adobe Campaign Form components by examining how the Geometrixx-outdoors template ( /apps/geometrixx-outdoors/components/page_campaign_profile) is implemented, and points you to important information you may need when creating your own custom template.

Email and form samples are only available in Geometrixx. Please download sample Geometrixx content from Package Share.

To create a custom AEM page template using Adobe Campaign Form components, make sure you have the following:

  1. Correct resourceSuperType

    Make sure the page-component inherits from mcm/campaign/components/profile.

    This is required for the servlets to get and save info

    • ClientContext points to /etc/clientcontext/campaign
    • There is also an extra config node.

    <sling:include path="contexthub" resourceType="granite/contexthub/components/contexthub"/>
    <cq:include script="/libs/cq/cloudserviceconfigs/components/servicelibs/servicelibs.jsp"/>
  4. body.jsp (

    code language-none
    <cq:include path="cloudservices" resourceType="cq/cloudserviceconfigs/components/servicecomponents"/>
  5. Campaign page properties

    To be able to select an Adobe Campaign template the page-properties are extended with the Campaign tab:
