AEM 6.4 Experience Fragments introduces a new ability that lets content authors to create a building block consisting of components, that lets authors to re-use content across different variations and across different templates.


Editable templates used for creating experience fragments should have the building block component added to its policies.

  • Creating a building block makes it easy for content authors to re-use the content across different variations.  
  • Changing the master copy building block should automatically roll out changes to its references without cancelling inheritance or any layout changes. 
  • Content authors can easily rename an existing building block or delete it.
  • Deleting a building block from an Experience Fragment doesnt delete its references.
