Making multiple edits using AEM's Bulk Editor - Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks about Adobe Experience Manager's Bulk Editor with some usage scenarios, above is the vid and below you will find some useful notes.
  • The Bulk Editor allows you to make several content changes at once without having to go page by page using the siteadmin or sites console or node by node using crx de lite.

  • In this Tips and Tricks video I show you a couple of scenarios like:

    How to replace the Resource Type for pages and components when you renamed a component or template

  • Add content into multiple instances of a component inside a page when you have to update several pieces of content and you already have them on a spreadsheet for example

  1. 1.


    • Have access to an Adobe Experience Manager instance
  2. 2.

    Using different query parameters

    • Inside AEM 6.2 you can look directly for the resource type
      You can also search for a partial match
    • In aem 6.3 or 6.4 given that this won’t work, you can use a different query parameter that might return what you need. Bear in mind that some properties won't work as you might expect, like, searching using the jcr:primaryType, in this case you have to just say "type" instead and then it will work. Also if the property has a colon as part of it use quotes around them.
    • You can also mix multiple query parameters, in this case it will try to find nodes that math both query parameters
          type:"nt:unstructured", "sling:resourceType":aem-bulk-changes-examples/components/structure/page
  3. 3.

    Adding Custom Properties to the results

    • You can add the properties that you want to be able to modify, here you have to use the complete name.
    • You can include more that one column/property too
  4. 4.

    Enabling the import button

    • To enable the import button on the bulk editor just add “hib=false” into the url, this will instruct AEM to show the import button,
    • Don't forget to add the root path used for exporting the tsv file
  5. 5.
