Integrating Assets with Activity Stream
Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets users perform many actions like creating, uploading and deleting Assets. These actions can be recorded so you are able to provide an history of what has been done by a user. This section describes the recording capabilities of AEM and how to configure AEM in order to record specific events.
Performance Considerations and Default Behavior
This integration could be CPU and disk space consuming for example when doing bulk import. For these reasons the AEM Assets integration with the Activity Stream is disabled by default.
Supported Action Events
The following events can be configured to be recorded:
- License accepted (ACCEPTED)
- Asset created (ASSET_CREATED)
- Asset moved (ASSET_MOVED)
- Asset removed (ASSET_REMOVED)
- License rejected (REJECTED)
- Asset downloaded (DOWNLOADED)
- Asset versioned (VERSIONED)
- Asset version restored (RESTORED)
- Asset Metadata updated (METADATA_UPDATED)
