Retrieve Data from AEM

To automatically retrieve content from AEM, create a new fetch task by following these steps. The connector runs each fetch task automatically, based on the schedule that is defined in the configuration file.

To create a new Fetch Task

  1. Stop the connector.
  2. Open the configuration file in a text editor.
  3. In the [FetchTasks] section of the configuration file, specify the number of fetch tasks using the Number parameter. If you are configuring the first fetch task, type Number=1. If one or more fetch tasks have already been configured, increase the value of the Number parameter by one (1). Below the Number parameter, specify the names of the fetch tasks, starting from zero (0). For example:

  4. Below the [FetchTasks] section, create a new TaskName section. The name of the section must match the name of the new fetch task. For example:

  1. In the new section, set the following parameters. These parameters are required to connect to the AEM repository.

    UseSecureConnection A Boolean value that specifies whether to communicate with AEM over HTTPS.
    AEMHost The host name or IP address of the AEM server.
    AEMPort The port number for the AEM server.
    BasicUsername The user name to use to access AEM.
    BasicPassword The password to use to access AEM.
    ProxyHost (Optional) The host name or IP address of the proxy server to use to access AEM.
    ProxyPort (Optional) The port of the proxy server to use to access AEM.
  2. (Optional) You can set additional configuration parameters to specify the information that you want to retrieve. For more information about the parameters that you can use, refer to the AEM Connector Reference.
  3. Save and close the configuration file.
