To start using AEM GatherContent connector first you need to create and setup GatherContent configuration:

Create a new GatherContent configuration

Click [+] or "Configure Now" and enter Title and optional Name in the Create Configuration dialog. Save the configuration.

Enter GC Credentials

Enter the following information and click "Verify":

  1. GatherContent User Email Address - This is the email address you use to log in to GatherContent. Your permissions will determine what accounts, projects and content are available.

An error message will appear if entered credentials are not valid.

On successful validation select your GatherContent account (if you have multiple accounts all associated with the same email address they will all be listed) and click "OK".

You can also reset your connections by clicking the "Reset" button.

Select your GatherContent Editor Type

You'll likely be using the newest version of GatherContent. To confirm, do you see the 'Migrate' tab on the main navigation in GatherContent? If so, you are using the New Editor.

If you see the 'Connect & Export' tab instead, you're using the Legacy version.

Test Connection

After credentials are set you can test the connection to the GatherContent platform by following these steps:

Click the "Test Connection" button

Successful connection
