Retrieving AEM LiveCopy information using the MSM API

You can use the Adobe Experience Manager Multi-Site Manager (MSM) API to retrieve information about LiveCopys. AEM MSM functionality lets you define relations between AEM sites and also lets you define to what degree re-use or control is exerted on the different sites. Using MSM, once configure MSM, you can update multi site with little effort.

This article walks you through how to use the AEM MSM API to retrieve LiveRelationship information. A LiveRelationship defines a live relationship of a synced resource between its blueprint and livecopy. For example, if a site (blueprint) "/content/geometrixx" has a livecopy in "/content/copy", then the resource of "/content/geometrixx/en/jcr:content" and "/content/copy/en/jcr:content" form a relationship. See Interface LiveRelationship.


Note: For information about MSM functionality, see Multi-Site Management.

Using an OSGi bundle that contains these APIs, you can retrieve LiveRelationship information. In this development article, the LiveRelationship values are written to the Adobe CQ log file.
