Storage configuration is the means of identifying the storage chosen for community content, also known as user generated content (UGC).
This setting informs the AEM Communities code as to which implementation of the storage resource provider (SRP) is to be used when accessing UGC and must reflect the topology established when AEM was deployed.
For a discussion of storage options and deployment topologies, visit
In the author environment, to reach the storage configuration console
- from global navigation : Tools, Communities, Storage Configuration
To select a storage option other than the default JCR :
Be aware that if no selection is made, the default is the AEM repository, JCR.
JCR is not a common store shared by the author and publish environments. Community content will be visible only from the author or publish environment in which it was created.
Visit JCR Store for additional information.
The absence of the node srpc under /etc/socialconfig indicates the default JCR store.
