Packages enable the importing and exporting of repository content. For example, you can use packages to install new functionality, transfer content between instances, and back up repository content.
Packages can be accessed and/or maintained from the following pages:
- Package Manager, which you use to manage the packages in your local AEM instance.
- Package Share, a centralized server holding both publicly available packages and those private to your company. The public packages can contain hotfixes, new functionality, documentation, etc.
You can transfer packages between Package Manager, Package Share, and your file system.
