Groups Migration

  • Install ACS commons package.
  • Login to AEM author instance.
  • Navigate to tools page in we can able to see acs-common folder.
  • Touch UI, Navigate to Tools -> Operations ->Configuration,
  • Classic UI open Tools Console (http://localhost:4502/miscadmin#/etc/acs-commons/packagers)
  • Now we need to create a new page under packager’s folder with ACL Packager Template

  • Double click and open the page(Migrate Users)
  • Edit ACL Packager Configuration rules and configuration, as shown in below screenshot and click OK

Now enter all values:

  • Now click on create package.

Now go to the /crx/packmgr and download the package. We can install this package in other AEM instances

3. Users Migration

We can do users migration in two ways:

3.1 Creating ACL Packager:
 We need to create a new ACL packager like above and deploy in other AEM instance.

3.2 Package Create:
Another way is we can build package directly from http://localhost:4502/crx/packmgr with all users and install in any other instance.
