Adobe Experience Manager Desktop App lets you map the AEM Assets repository to a network directory so assets within AEM are available at your local system. 

Depending upon the operating system, you can view and browse assets in AEM from Mac OS X Finder/Windows Explorer. In addition, you can quickly switch between Finder/Explorer and AEM Assets using convenient links.

You can create, edit, or delete files from Finder/Explorer. The changes are automatically synchronized with AEM Assets and vice-versa. In other words, any changes that you make to the assets from Finder/Explorer are reflected in AEM Assets. Similarly, any changes you make within AEM Assets are visible from Finder/Explorer.

You can download AEM Desktop App from the AEM Desktop App download page. Ensure your AEM server has all the required packages installed before using the application.

Remarque :

Adobe Experience Manager Desktop App is a new name for AEM Assets Companion App, introduced in AEM 6.1 release. 

Using AEM Desktop App

To use AEM Desktop App, ensure that your AEM server version is supported by AEM Desktop App, download the appropriate installation file (binary) for your operating system (Mac or Windows) from AEM Assets and install the app.

Remarque :

On Windows, the default Win7 setting prevents AEM Desktop App from handling assets that are larger than 50MB.

Adobe recommends that you use an HTTPS connection to connect to the author node to ensure that you securely transfer assets to/from AEM. Moreover, intermediate firewalls, proxies, and load balancers don't support WebDAV well and interfere with the AEM Desktop App. Using SSL ensures that the traffic reaches the AEM author unmodified.

Prerequisites for AEM Server

Attention :

The version of AEM Destkop App you are planning to install on your local machine might require a specific AEM server version/additional server-side components (service packs, hot fixes or feature packs). Ensure that the AEM server is properly configured before you connect to it for the first time. If you require help, contact your AEM administrator.

Checking out assets on Mac

AEM Desktop App lets you check out files to prevent other users from modifying files you’re working on.

  1. From the Context menu, select the Open AEM Assets Folder to open Finder.

    chlimage_1

    Remarque :

    The local path to the assets mounted with Desktop App 1.3 is different than the local path mounted with Desktop App 1.2. For example, when you open the More File Info dialog on the same AEM asset, the following server locations are displayed:

    This change may impact assets that have other assets placed through the Place Link command (in Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign). You may have to relink assets in the Adobe Creative Cloud applications. Alternatively, mount AEM as a WebDAV drive (works even without the Destkop App), and use it along the new Desktop App mounting point before all assets are relinked.

  4. In the Asset Info dialog, click/tap the Checkout icon to check the asset out. The Checkout icon is a toggles to the Checkin icon after you click/tap it.

File handling

If you use AEM Desktop App 1.3 on Mac OS, files are saved to a network drive location mounted via Desktop App in two phases. In the first phase, a file is saved locally. This way, a user need not wait for the file to be fully transferred to AEM after saving the file. Instead, the user can resume work as soon as the file is saved locally. In the second phase, Desktop App uploads the updated file to AEM server after a predefined delay (for example, 30s). This operation occurs in the background. Use the Show Background File Sync Status option to view the status of the upload operation.

  1. Upload an asset to AEM Assets.

  2. Click/tap the AEM Desktop App icon from the toolbar.

  3. From the menu, select the Show Background File Sync Status option.

    chlimage_1
  4.  From the dialog, review the status of the upload operation.
