Latest Release Overview video

Watch the February 2023 Release Overview video for a summary of the features added in the 2023.02.0 (February 2023) release.

Experience Manager Sites as a Cloud Service

New features

  • The Experience Manager GraphQL content delivery API now supports GraphQL Paging and Sorting, to make fetching and rendering large content sets more efficient. GraphQL pagination improves query response time by returning results in subsets as opposed to all at once. GraphQL sorting lets you put content sets in a desired order, making it easier for a client application to process the content. Query response time is further improved with Hybrid Filtering in the Experience Manager GraphQL engine. Content is now read from JCR in smaller sets that correspond with query filters.

Experience Manager Assets as a Cloud Service

New feature

  • Assets Reports now include the ability for Administrators to generate assets download reports from the Experience Manager Assets as a Cloud Service deployment. This data further empowers Admins to derive insights from key success metrics to measure the adoption of Assets within your enterprise and by customers.
  • Experience Manager Assets now supports SAS Token in addition to the Access Key for authentication while connecting to Azure Blob Storage data source for ingesting assets using the Bulk Import tool.
  • Improved management of CMYK images in Asset Compute, letting you generate Smart Crop and Smart Tags for CMYK images.

Experience Manager as a Cloud Service Foundation

New features

  • Rapid Development Environment – RDEs lets developers rapidly troubleshoot issues and deploy new features on Experience Manager as a Cloud Service.

    Rapid Development Environments are a new type of Cloud Environment intended as a fast, consistent, and extensible way of validating that code working locally also functions as expected in the Cloud. Using command-line tools, quickly “sync” content packages, bundles, content files, OSGI configuration, or Dispatcher configuration to the RDE.

    After successfully validating code in RDE, you are encouraged to deploy it to a Cloud Development environment. In the environment, you can exercise the Cloud Manager quality gates before deploying by way of a production pipeline to stage and production environments.

    Each program includes one RDE and optionally, more can be licensed.

    note note
    NOTE
    RDEs are planned for gradual roll-out over the next few weeks. You can send an email to aemcs-rde-support@adobe.com to skip to the front of the line.
  • Extended support for server-side API access tokens – You can now generate multiple credentials, which are useful for scenarios where APIs have different characteristics. It is also now possible to revoke credentials in a self-service manner.

Cloud Manager

New features

  • Users can download custom UI test results from the UI.

  • Rapid Development Environments (RDEs) are a new type of Cloud Environment intended as a fast, consistent, and extensible way to validate that code that works locally also functions as expected in the Cloud.
