Content Transfer Tool ctt-release

Release Date release-date-ctt

The Release Date for Content Transfer Tool v1.9.0 is February 28, 2022.

What’s New what-is-new-ctt

  • Check Size Guardrails - The Content Transfer Tool Check Size feature helps reduce failed content transfers. With the Check Size feature, users can 1) determine whether they have sufficient disk space in the crx-quickstart subdirectory before extraction, and 2) estimate the migration set size and verify if it’s supported. If one or both of these checks are violated, users see warnings in the CTT UI. With this guardrail, you can avoid content transfer failures and proactively discuss migration options with Adobe Customer Care. See Determining migration set size and disk space for more details.

Best Practices Analyzer bpa-release

Release Date release-date-bpa

The Release Date for Best Practices Analyzer v2.1.26 is March 16, 2022.

What’s New what-is-new-bpa

  • Ability to detect unprocessed assets. If unprocessed assets are detected, these assets either need to be set to processed or need to be removed from the migration set during content transfer to avoid running into issues during content ingestion.
  • Ability to detect if content has more than 1000 vanity URLs. Using a high number of vanity URLs is not best practice since it puts a load on Dispatcher and Publish servers.
  • Ability to identify issues related to Oak index definitions and detect incompatibilities with AEM as a Cloud Service.
  • Ability to detect and report on usage of Externalizer configurations. In AEM as a Cloud Service Externalizer configurations are set by Cloud Manager, hence, existing Externalizer configurations need to be refactored to maintain compatibility.

Bug Fixes bug-fixes-bpa

  • In some scenarios, BPA failed to run because of FormsSelectiveFeaturesAnalysis throwing an assertion error. This has been fixed.
  • BPA was reporting findings related to the WRK pattern as MAJOR instead of CRITICAL. This has been fixed.
  • BPA was incorrectly reporting findings related to OAK index definitions in ui.apps as CRITICAL. This has been fixed
