Cumulative Fix Pack

Adobe introduced a single-delivery model for releasing fixes. Instead of releasing hot fixes for individual issues, Adobe now releases a Cumulative Fix Pack (CFP) every month (subject to passing quality checks). A CFP is an aggregated content package for multiple fixes. CFPs primarily include bug fixes but might also include Feature Packs. They have the following advantages over individual hotfix releases:

  • Cumulative in nature (for example, a CFP contains fixes delivered through previous CFPs)
  • Increased quality assurance
  • Simplified installation (User installs a CFP as a single package that has no dependencies, except for the latest service pack)

For more information on CFP and other types of releases, see Maintenance Release Vehicle.

About the release

AEM Cumulative Fix Pack 6.3.3.2 is an important update that includes several internal and customer fixes since the general availability of AEM 6.3 Service Pack 3 (6.3.3.0) in September 2018.

AEM Cumulative Fix Pack 6.3.3.2 is dependent on AEM 6.3 Service Pack 3. Therefore, you must install the AEM Cumulative Fix Pack 6.3.3.x package after installing AEM 6.3 Service Pack 3. For installation instructions, see AEM 6.3 Service Pack 3 release notes.

The key highlights of the AEM Cumulative Fix Pack are: 

  • Added support for the Rules Tab and its enforcement on the Asset Folder into the Folder Metadata Schema.
  • Enabled pagination support to group listing page on publish
  • Enabled notification unreadCount to be configured with any number. Default value set to 20.
  • Fixes in External Link Checker.

Caution:

Applying CFP without validating compatibility between installed feature packs may result in system failure or loss of custom configurations, which could require restoration from backup to resolve.

Note:

For AEM instances with a version lower than 6.3.3.0, Adobe recommends deploying SP/CFP via the install folder for customers having a large number of users on AEM instance.

You can access documentation for Validate option at https://docs.adobe.com/content/docs/en/aem/6-3/administer/content/package-manager.html#Package%20Validator

  • AEM 6.3.3.0 is a prerequisite for the CFP. Please visit Upgrade Documentation for detailed instructions about upgrading an AEM installation to AEM 6.3. 
  • For a cluster deployment using RDBMK or MongoDB, the CFP package can be installed on any of the Author instances that uses Package Manager.
  • Before installing the cumulative fix pack, ensure to take a snapshot or make a backup of your AEM instance.
  • Uninstalling the CFP is not supported.

Adding new loggers

To configure debug level logging and retrieve an activity log during installation of SPs/CFPs, you can follow the steps below:

  • You may add a new logger at the default location  http://localhost:4502/system/console/slinglog with the below properties:
    • Log Level:  Debug
    • Additive: false
    • Log File: logs/activity.log
    • Logger:  org.apache.jackrabbit.vault.packaging.impl.ActivityLog

The activity.log will be created in crx-quickstart/logs folder.

Install the Cumulative Fix Pack via Package Share

Perform the following steps to install the Cumulative Fix Pack on an existing AEM 6.3 instance:

  1. On your AEM instance, click Tools > Packages.

  2. Find the downloaded CFP package and click Install. 

Automatic installation

The CFP can be automatically installed into a running instance in the following ways:

  • Place the package into ../crx-quickstart/install while the server is running. The package gets installed automatically.
  • Use the HTTP API from Package Manager – make sure that you use cmd=install&recursive=true – so the nested package is installed.

Validate installation

  1. The Product Information page (/system/console/productinfo) should now show the updated version string "Adobe Experience Manager, Version 6.3.3.1" under Installed Products.

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

Note:

Since AEM 6.3.3.1, the log level in Jackrabbit FileVault has changed from INFO to DEBUG for most of the messages. To obtain installation logs for a content package installed on AEM 6.3.3.1 or higher, enable DEBUG log level for org.apache.jackrabbit.vault.packaging.impl.

  • Uninstall the previous enterprise archive (EAR) file from the websphere application server and install the updated EAR file following the steps at  Section 10.2 of https://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/aem-forms/6-3/install-single-server-websphere.pdf 
  • Save the file and restart the server.

Configuration settings required for NPR-23208

Note:

This configuration setting applies to 6.3.2.2 and later. It directs you to update Access Control Lists (ACL) policies manually through CRX-DE as ACLs do not get updated through the CFP installation due to "merge_preserve" acHandling.

Documentation for adding ACL policies manually

To update ACL policies, add the below Access controls through CRX-DE:

1) At "/content" path
a) Principal : reference-adjustment-service
Type : Allow
Privileges : jcr:read , jcr:modifyProperties
Restrictions : rep:glob="/*/jcr:content"
b) Principal : reference-adjustment-service
Type : Allow
Privileges : jcr:read , jcr:modifyProperties
Restrictions : rep:glob="/*/jcr:content/*"

2) At "/content/usergenerated" path
a) Principal : reference-adjustment-service
Type : Allow
Privileges : jcr:write

3) At "/etc" path
a) Principal : reference-adjustment-service
Type : Allow
Privileges : jcr:read , jcr:modifyProperties
Restrictions : rep:glob="/*/jcr:content"
b) Principal : reference-adjustment-service
Type : Allow
Privileges : jcr:read , jcr:modifyProperties
Restrictions : rep:glob="/*/jcr:content/*"

Configuration settings required for NPR-19450

Note:

This configuration setting applies to CFP 6.3.1.1 and later.

Configure the property CQ.PAGE_PROPERTIES_MAX_RECURSION_LEVEL.

The property controls the maximum depth of the node subtree under the page  /jcr:content node, until which the nodes present in the repository shall be used for getting the page properties. Any node present below the specified depth in this property is ignored.

The default value is 1. The value can be overriden by overlaying the file constants.js (/libs/cq/ui/widgets/source/constants.js) uncommenting the CQ.PAGE_PROPERTIES_MAX_RECURSION_LEVEL property and assigning it the required value ( the max depth under the page's /jcr:content till which the page properties' data is stored).

If the user needs to create multiple pages variants such that the number of nodes under the page's /jcr:content node becomes greater than 1000, use the following steps to do configuration changes:

  • Configure the property JSON Max results of Apache Sling
  • Get Servlet using/system/console/configMgr
  • Set its value to a number >1000 (which is the current default) such that this number is greater than the total number of nodes in the /jcr:content subtree until the configured depth above.

This enables the sling GET servlet to be able to return all the required nodes.
