By default, the synchronization scheduler runs after every 3 minutes to synchronize all the assets modified and updated in the repository via LiveCycle Workbench 11. Applications containing forms and resources are visible in the AEM forms user interface once the synchronization process is complete.   

Change interval of the synchronization scheduler

Perform the following steps to change the interval of the synchronization scheduler:

  1. Log in to AEM Configuration Manager. The URL of Configuration Manager is http://[Server]:[Port]/lc/system/console/configMgr

  2. Locate and open the FormsManagerConfiguration bundle.

  3. Specify a new value for the Synchronization Scheduler Frequency option.
    The unit of the frequency is minutes. For example, to configure the scheduler to run after every 60 minutes, specify 60.

Synchronizing assets

You can use the Synchronize Assets from Repository option to manually synchronize the assets. Perform the following steps to manually synchronize the assets:

AEM forms user interface
Figure 1 - AEM forms user interface

Step 1

Log in to AEM forms. The default URL is http://[Server]:[Port]/lc/aem/forms/

Synchronization dialog box
Figure 2 - Synchronization dialog box

Step 2

Click the icon in the toolbar.

  • If you do not have any assets at last configured path then the dialog box shown in figure 2 appears. Click Start to initiate the synchronization.

You can create new applications in the workflow designer (LiveCycle Workbench).  

  • If the newly created application and a folder at /content/dam/formsanddocuments has identical name, then the dialog box shown in figure 4 appears. An error "An asset with the same name as this application already exists at root level." is logged.  

To resolve the conflict, rename the application, and manually synchronize the assets.
