AEM Integration with AEM Mobile On-Demand portal helps organizations to manage mobile content easily and work in more distributed way. Once the integration is done, we will be able to add content (Article, collections, banners etc) through AEM for the Mobile Application. We also can import existing content available in AEM Mobile On-Demand portal to our AEM Development environment.

To complete the integration, we need API access of On-Demand portal, which requires additional license from Adobe. Below given the details required.

  • API Key & Client Secret are credentials to access the API Gateway. (Refer Link and Raise a request for API Key from Adobe
  • Device ID and Device Token are credentials to identify the API user. (Generate the Device details using above API received from Adobe then from URL
