Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 includes new features, key customer-requested enhancements, and bug fixes. It also includes performance, stability, and security improvements released since the initial availability of 6.5 in April 2019. Install this Service Pack on Experience Manager 6.5.

Key features and enhancements

Forms

Some of the key features and enhancements in this release include the following:

  • Support for Oauth Credentials: A new and easier to use credential for server-to-server authentication, replacing the existing Service Account (JWT) credential. (NPR-41994)

  • Rule Editor enhancements in AEM Forms:

    • Support for implementing nested conditions with When-then-else functionality.
    • Validate or reset panels and forms, including fields.
    • Support for modern JavaScript features such as let and arrow functions (ES10 support) within the Custom Functions.
  • AutoTag API for PDF Accessibility: AEM Forms on OSGi now support the new AutoTag API to enhance PDF for accessibility standards by adding tags: paragraphs, and lists. It makes PDFs more accessible for users with assistive technology.

  • 16-bit PNG support: PDF Generator’s ImageToPdf service now supports conversion of PNGs with 16-bit color depth.

  • Apply artifacts to individual text blocks in XDPs: Forms Designer now lets users configure settings on individual text blocks in XDP files. This ability lets you control the elements that are treated as artifacts in the resulting PDFs. These elements, such as headers and footers, are made accessible for assistive technologies. The key features include marking text blocks as artifacts, and embedding these settings in the XDP metadata. The Forms Output service applies these settings during PDF generation, ensuring proper PDF / UA tagging.

  • AEM Forms Designer is certified with GB18030:2022 standard: With the GB18030:2022 certification, now Forms Designer supports the Chinese Unicode character set that lets you input Chinese characters into all editable fields and dialog boxes.

  • Support for WebToPDF route in JEE Server: The PDF Generator service now supports the WebToPDF route for converting HTML files to PDF documents on JEE, in addition to the Webkit and WebCapture (Windows only) routes. While the WebToPDF route is already available on OSGi, it has now been extended to include in JEE as well. On both JEE and OSGi platforms, the PDF Generator service supports the following routes across different operating systems:

    • Windows: Webkit, WebCapture, WebToPDF
    • Linux: Webkit, WebToPDF

  • When a user on the environment AEM Forms Service Pack 19 (6.5.19.0) calls the API to format numbers, the formatted numbers are not aligned with the respective Locales. As a result, the currency signs are not displayed correctly. The issue persists regardless of the Locale parameter set to “de_DE” or “en_US.” (FORMS-13759)

  • When a user on the environment AEM Forms Service Pack 19 (6.5.19.0) converts 16-bit PNGs to PDFs using Img2Pdf PDFG service, it fails and is unable to “Use Acrobat Image conversion” service. (FORMS-13754)

  • On AEM Forms Service Pack 19 (6.5.19.1), when a user uploads an existing JobOptions file in the Services / PDF Generator / Adobe PDF Settings section of the adminui of AEM forms JEE, the upload fails. It also shows the following error message (FORMS-13597):
    "An error has occurred while processing your request. Please use the breadcrumb links to navigate to another page."

  • When a user migrates from AEM Forms Service Pack 15 (6.5.15.0) to AEM Forms Service Pack (6.5.17.0) or AEM Forms Service Pack (6.5.19.0), the FD key duplicates, which cause the forms not to translate correctly. (FORMS-13461)

  • Process purge process tool fails with the error NoClassDefFoundError: org/omg/CORBA/UserException. (FORMS-13751)

  • When a user tries to embed an Adaptive Form (AF) inside a webpage, either external or on AEM Sites, using an embed container, the Adaptive Form guide container introduces an ARIA LABEL. The label has the role=“main” for the embedded form. According to ARIA guidelines, there should only be one role=“main” per page. Therefore, when a user adds another role=“main” for their page’s main content, it is flagged as an accessibility issue. (FORMS-13538)

  • On AEM Forms Service Pack 19 (6.5.19.0), when using the drop-down in an Adaptive Form, the drop-downs with placeholder text retain the value of id="emptyValue". As such, if a form has multiple drop-down components, each has id="emptyValue" that is not correct as per the ARIA guidelines. (FORMS-13370).

Install Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 install

  • Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 requires Experience Manager 6.5. See upgrade documentation for detailed instructions.
  • The Service Pack download is available on Adobe Software Distribution.
  • On a deployment with MongoDB and multiple instances, install Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 on one of the Author instances using the Package Manager.
IMPORTANT
Adobe does not recommend that you remove or uninstall the Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 package. As such, before you install the pack, you should create a backup of the crx-repository in case you must roll it back.

Install the Service Pack on Experience Manager 6.5 install-service-pack

  1. Restart the instance before installation if the instance is in update mode (when the instance was updated from an earlier version). Adobe recommends a restart if the current uptime for an instance is high.

  2. Before installing, take a snapshot or a fresh backup of your Experience Manager instance.

  3. Download the Service Sack from Software Distribution.

  4. Open Package Manager, then select Upload Package to upload the package. To know more, see Package Manager.

  5. Select the package, then select Install.

  6. To update the S3 connector, stop the instance after installation of the Service Pack, replace the existing connector with a new binary file provided in the install folder, and restart the instance. See Amazon S3 Data Store.

NOTE
Dialog on Package Manager UI sometimes exits during the installation of the Service Pack. Adobe recommends that you wait for error logs to stabilize before accessing the deployment. Wait for the specific logs related to the uninstall of the updater bundle before being assured that the installation is successful. Typically, this issue occurs in the Safari browser but can intermittently occur in any browser.

Automatic installation

There are two different methods that you can use to install Experience Manager 6.5.21.0.

  • Place the package into ../crx-quickstart/install folder when the server is available online. The package is automatically installed.
  • Use the HTTP API from Package Manager. Use cmd=install&recursive=true so that the nested packages are installed.
NOTE
Experience Manager 6.5.21.0 does not support Bootstrap installation.

Validate the installation

To know the platforms that are certified to work with this release, see the technical requirements.

  1. The product information page (/system/console/productinfo) displays the updated version string Adobe Experience Manager (6.5.21.0) under Installed Products.

  2. All OSGi bundles are either ACTIVE or FRAGMENT in the OSGi Console (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).

  3. The OSGi bundle org.apache.jackrabbit.oak-core is version 1.22.20 or later (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).

Install Service Pack for Experience Manager Forms install-aem-forms-add-on-package

For instructions to install the Service Pack on Experience Manager Forms, see Experience Manager Forms Service Pack installation instructions.

NOTE
The Adaptive Forms feature, available in AEM 6.5 QuickStart, is designed for exploration and evaluation purposes only. For production use, it is essential to obtain a valid license for AEM Forms, as Adaptive Forms functionality requires proper licensing.

Install GraphQL Index Package for Experience Manager Content Fragments install-aem-graphql-index-add-on-package

Customers using GraphQL must install the Experience Manager Content Fragment with GraphQL Index Package 1.1.1.

Doing so lets you add the required index definition based on the features they actually use.

Failure to install this package may result in slow or failed GraphQL queries.

NOTE
Only install this package once per instance; it does not need to be reinstalled with every Service Pack.

UberJar uber-jar

To use UberJar in a Maven project, see how to use UberJar and include the following dependency in your project POM:

  <dependency>
  <groupId>com.adobe.aem</groupId>
  <artifactId>uber-jar</artifactId>
  <version>6.5.21</version>
  <scope>provided</scope>
  </dependency>
NOTE
UberJar and the other related artifacts are available on Maven Central Repository instead of Adobe Public Maven repository (repo.adobe.com). The main UberJar file is renamed to uber-jar-<version>.jar. So, there is no classifier, with apis as the value, for the dependency tag.

Known issues known-issues

  • Related to Oak
    From Service Pack 13 and above, the following error log has begun to appear which affects the persistence cache:

    code language-shell
    org.h2.mvstore.MVStoreException: The write format 1 is smaller than the supported format 2 [2.0.202/5]
    at org.h2.mvstore.DataUtils.newMVStoreException(DataUtils.java:1004)
        at org.h2.mvstore.MVStore.getUnsupportedWriteFormatException(MVStore.java:1059)
        at org.h2.mvstore.MVStore.readStoreHeader(MVStore.java:878)
        at org.h2.mvstore.MVStore.<init>(MVStore.java:455)
        at org.h2.mvstore.MVStore$Builder.open(MVStore.java:4052)
        at org.h2.mvstore.db.Store.<init>(Store.java:129)
    

    Or

    code language-shell
    org.h2.mvstore.MVStoreException: The write format 1 is smaller than the supported format 2 [2.1.214/5].
    

    To resolve this exception, do the following:

    1. Delete the following two folders from crx-quickstart/repository/

      • cache
      • diff-cache
    2. Install the Service Pack, or restart Experience Manager as a Cloud Service.
      New folders of cache and diff-cache are automatically created and you no longer experience an exception related to mvstore in the error.log.

  • Update your GraphQL queries that may have used a custom API name for your content model to use the default name of the content model instead.

  • A GraphQL query may use the damAssetLucene index instead of the fragments index. This action might result in GraphQL queries that fail, or take a long time to run.

    To correct the problem, damAssetLucene has to be configured to include the following two properties under /indexRules/dam:Asset/properties:

    • contentFragment

      • jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
      • name="jcr:content/contentFragment"
      • propertyIndex="{Boolean}true"
      • type="Boolean"
    • model

      • jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured"
      • name="jcr:content/data/cq:model"
      • ordered="{Boolean}true"
      • propertyIndex="{Boolean}true"
      • type="String"

    After the index definition is changed, a reindexing is required (reindex = true).

    After these steps, the GraphQL queries should perform faster.

  • When trying to move, delete, or publish either Content Fragments, Sites, or Pages, there is an issue when Content Fragment references are fetched. The background query fails. That is, the functionality does not work.
    To ensure correct operation, you must add the following properties to the index definition node /oak:index/damAssetLucene (no reindexing is required):

    code language-xml
    "tags": [
        "visualSimilaritySearch"
      ]
    "refresh": true
    
  • If you upgrade your Experience Manager instance from 6.5.0 - 6.5.4 to the latest Service Pack on Java™ 11, you see RRD4JReporter exceptions in the error.log file. To stop the exceptions, restart your instance of Experience Manager.

  • Users can rename a folder in a hierarchy in Assets and publish a nested folder to Brand Portal. However, the title of the folder is not updated in Brand Portal until the root folder is republished.

  • The following errors and warning messages may be displayed during installation of Experience Manager 6.5.x.x:

    • "When the Adobe Target integration is configured in Experience Manager using the Target Standard API (IMS authentication), then exporting Experience Fragments to Target results in wrong offer types getting created. Instead of type “Experience Fragment”/source “Adobe Experience Manager,” Target creates several offers with type “HTML”/source “Adobe Target Classic.”
    • com.adobe.granite.maintenance.impl.TaskScheduler: No maintenance windows found at granite/operations/maintenance.
    • Adaptive Form server-side validation fails when aggregate functions such as SUM, MAX, and MIN are used (CQ-4274424).
    • com.adobe.granite.maintenance.impl.TaskScheduler : No maintenance windows found at granite/operations/maintenance.
    • The hotspot in a Dynamic Media interactive image is not visible when previewing the asset through the Shoppable Banner viewer.
    • com.adobe.cq.social.cq-social-jcr-provider bundle com.adobe.cq.social.cq-social-jcr-provider:1.3.5 (395)[com.adobe.cq.social.provider.jcr.impl.SpiSocialJcrResourceProviderImpl(2302)] : Timeout waiting for register change to complete unregistered.
  • Starting with AEM 6.5.15, the Rhino JavaScript Engine provided by the org.apache.servicemix.bundles.rhino bundle has a new hoisting behavior. Scripts that use the strict mode (use strict;) have to declare their correct variables. Otherwise, they do not get run, and end up throwing a runtime error.

  • Installing tagging related out-of-the-box content by way of an official update package resets the languages property of the /content/cq:tags node to default. This action is true for Service Packs, Security Service Packs, Extended Feature Packs, Cumulative Feature Packs, patches, and so on. Therefore, it is necessary to add it from the properties before installation.
