This page shows the service status for (1) Adobe Experience Manager Mobile, before 22-February-2016 known as "Adobe Digital Publishing Solution (DPS 2015)"; and (2) Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. Please be sure to reference the appropriate product area and the status of the individual workflows you are using.



 Digital Publishing Suite iOS 10 Compatibility

Adobe has been actively testing the Digital Publishing Suite iOS viewer with the iOS 10 beta builds provided by Apple. Through testing we have identified a small number of UI bugs. You may have noticed these bugs with your own apps if you have tested with the beta 4 release or later.

Adobe will be releasing an update to the DPS iOS viewer to address these bugs. The release will occur after Apple identifies their iOS 10 release candidate and we have completed testing with that build. We expect Apple to announce their release candidate in early September.

The fixes improve the visual appearance of the application on iOS 10 and some minor functional bugs. We encourage you to upgrade your apps when the update is available. Adobe will continue to test with the iOS 10 beta releases and the final release candidate, and will address any additional bugs should they surface.

Adobe will inform customers when the update is available through our normal customer communication channels, including a status page update and e-mail alert.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.9 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.9 on Wednesday, July 20.

  • Custom Cordova Plugins Now Supported – The frequently requested ability to add custom Cordova plugins to an AEM Mobile app is now available. This new feature makes it possible to extend the capabilities of AEM Mobile apps with custom device-level functionality. You can now include app features using the many plugins available from the Cordova/PhoneGap community, or you can create your own custom plugins. For example, you can enable mobile barcode scanning, access geofences, leverage mobile databases, and more in your app. You can also still take advantage of core Cordova plugins such as Geolocation, Camera, and Contacts that were made available in a previous release.
  • Custom Authentication Enhancements – The Custom Authentication feature now provides support for generic identity providers, including a setAuthToken API. With this new feature, you can take advantage of custom authentication without having to use SAML or OAuth. Generic identity providers allow two alternate authentication use cases, including: (1) Providing a custom UI—such as an HTML form—instead of using the standard user name and password prompt, and (2) Building a sign-in experience within an article rather than through the standard authentication process. These enhancements let you expand your authentication capabilities, such as including multiple authentication methods within the same app.
  • Search Enhancements – Search has exited beta and is now a fully fledged feature of AEM Mobile. With in-app searching, users can gain quicker access to your content. In-app searching has language support and is available for all platforms: iOS, Android, Windows, and Desktop Web Viewer.
  • Updated AEM Mobile Developer Tool – This release includes an update to the AEM Mobile Developer tool for both iOS and Android. With this updated developer tool, you can build and test apps that include custom Cordova plugins.

This release also includes several bug fixes and performance enhancements. For example, the iOS viewer has been updated to use the latest iOS video player.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.8 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.8 on Thursday, June 23.

  • Banner Linking Banners are now much more flexible. In addition to URL links, banners now support navto:// links to collections or articles, allowing you to link to the same article or collection from multiple cards within a browse page. You can use the mailto: format to send email, and you can use the sms: and tel: formats to send text messages or make phone calls. You can also make banners jump to the home page or be used as a back button.
  • New Cordova-Enabled APIs Engage your users more deeply through new device-level APIs. These APIs make it easier for you to use an article instead of a browse page for displaying app content. The enhanced getEntity API allows you to get information for articles, collections, or banners in your app. For any collection entity, there is a new getChildren API which returns information for articles, collections, or banners within a collection. For example, you can create an article that uses the APIs to generate a tree view of the entire published entity hierarchy, with hyperlinks to articles or collections. You can check entitlement status of collections, and you can also use the getThumbnailImage and getBackgroundImage APIs to display fetched information.
  • Language Support for Search (Beta) You can now specify which language is used to index the article metadata for in-app searching, giving you greater control over search capabilities in your apps. You can specify a default search language for articles in project settings, and you can override that setting for any article in article properties. An article will appear in search results only if its language setting matches the device language setting. For example, articles indexed as Spanish will not appear in search results if the device language is French.
  • Device Rotation Support (iOS) When you build an iOS app, you can make it portrait-only, landscape-only, or both. If you specify the “Both” option when building your app, browse pages, HTML articles, and smooth scrolling PDF articles fill the screen in either orientation. InDesign-based or PDF-based fixed-layout articles are letterboxed to fit the screen when users rotate the device away from the article’s target orientation.
  • Open URLs in Device Browsers A new format is available for creating links in HTML articles that leave the app and open the device browser. Use the goto://DeviceBrowser?url= format in HTML articles for links that should open an external browser or app.
  • Android Viewer Improvements The Persistent Top-Level Content feature released for iOS in early June is now available in Android viewers. Any article that’s added to the top-level collection can no longer be removed from cache when the cache limit is reached. That way, users will always be able to view any article in the top-level collection even if they’re offline. In addition, if Cordova plug-ins are enabled in an Android app, any required “Accept” prompts are displayed only when browsing to an article that uses that plug-in, not on initial launch of the app.
  • Distribution of Content in China AEM Mobile allows companies to provide content to readers in the People’s Republic of China once they have signed a “China Addendum” to their Experience Manager Mobile Service Order. Once Adobe processes the China Addendum, an “Enable China Distribution” option will appear in the account project settings. In addition, the WeChat social sharing option, which is especially popular in China, is now supported.
  • Bug Fixes and Enhancements This release include several bug fixes and performance enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.7 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.7 on Wednesday, June 1.

  • Upload PDFs as Article Files The process for creating AEM Mobile articles from PDF files is now simple. By creating articles from PDF files, you can simplify your production workflow and enhance your Enterprise mobile app experience. There are two methods for creating AEM Mobile articles from PDF files: upload PDF files directly in the On-Demand Portal, or use the AEM Mobile PDF Export for Acrobat add-on, which is no longer in prerelease. Once you install this add-on, you can use Acrobat to export articles from PDF files that appear in the project you specify. Acrobat can load PDFs from a computer’s local file system, Document Cloud, Creative Cloud, Dropbox, and Microsoft SharePoint. You can export individual PDF files to a project, or you can do a bulk upload.
  • Custom Authentication With Custom Authentication, you can now control the authentication process and customize the sign-in experience in AEM Mobile apps. The custom authentication sign-in experience appears in the app as a full-screen web view that you design. This initial release supports SAML 2.0 and OAuth 2.0. For example, OAuth 2.0 supports social sharing logins such as Facebook or Gmail, and SAML 2.0 provides MFA/OKTA support. Identity providers are set up in Master Settings and applied to a project in Project Settings.
  • Authentication APIs (iOS) Use authentication APIs to allow entitlement sign-in from any web view in your app.
  • Using App Fonts in HTML Articles With the ability to reference app fonts in HTML articles, you no longer need to upload fonts separately for each article. By referencing fonts that are uploaded in the app, you improve article download speed and performance.
  • Search (Beta) in Desktop Web Viewer The Search option is now available in Desktop Web Viewer, allowing users quicker access to your content. In-app searching is now supported on all platforms: iOS, Android, Windows, and Desktop Web Viewer.
  • Bug Fixes and Enhancements This release include several bug fixes and performance enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.6 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.6 on Tuesday, May 10.

  • AEM Mobile Developer Tool The AEM Mobile Developer Tool is a command line utility to help enable a smooth developer workflow for testing Cordova extensibility features. The tool can be installed on a developer’s local desktop. The tool allows you to create an AEM Mobile project folder structure that is ready for local development. You can then launch, install, and start the simulator build that will display local content from the local environment.
  • Windows Support for Cordova APIs The first phase of adding extensibility through Apache Cordova is now available for Windows apps. Now, with the addition of Windows, you can take advantage of a set of APIs to extend the content in your apps and engage your users more deeply through device-level functionality, on all three major device platforms.
  • Persistent Top-Level Content (iOS) Any article that’s added to the top-level collection will no longer be removed from cache when the cache limit is reached. That way, users will be able to view any content in the top-level collection even if they’re offline. At this time, only iOS viewers support this feature, but it should be available in Android and Windows apps soon.
  • Updated Overlays Panel in InDesign The Overlays panel in InDesign CC 2015 has been redesigned. The new panel displays the overlay types in the top section of the panel and the settings for the selected overlay in the bottom section. These changes affect only the appearance of the panel; the functionality of the interactive overlays remains the same. The updated panel will be available when you update InDesign CC 2015.
  • Browse Page Image Optimization Browse pages will load the most optimized version of an image used on the card, improving loading times of browse pages. These optimizations occur in the background.
  • On-Demand Services API Improvements The On-Demand Services APIs now allow you to fetch additional information such as article size and publishing job status.
  • Desktop Web Viewer Enhancements The Desktop Web Viewer includes improvements in navigation and UI based on user feedback. For example, the logo banner is now smaller and remains in place when content is scrolled. In addition, the hover effect of the next/previous buttons at the bottom of web viewer now occurs only when the actual arrow button is moused over.
  • Bug Fixes and Enhancements This release include several bug fixes and performance enhancements.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.5 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.5 on Tuesday, April 19.

  • Social Sharing in Android apps You can now enable Social Sharing in Android apps, allowing your customers to share content with other customers from Android apps, in addition to the previous support for iOS apps. When a customer shares an article from an app, a link to the article appears on the social share landing page, or the link can send users directly to the URL you specify in article settings.
  • Extensibility Enhancements With new app-based APIs, you can access specific information related to the app and provide more authentication information. Desktop Web Viewer now supports Content entity metadata, app data, getAuthToken, and isAuthenticated APIs. In addition, a new project setting allows you to change the default so that the “Enable Extensibility Features” option is selected in all new articles. That way, if you want to allow extensibility in all of your content, you no longer need to select this option for new articles.
  • Analytics Improvements iOS and Android apps now collect analytics for in-app searches, enabling visibility into search queries and patterns. The Desktop Web Viewer now tracks subscriberId and subscriberType in analytics.
  • Option to use WebKit for HTML content in iOS 9 When building an iOS app, you can enable the WKWebView plug-in in order to render HTML files the same way they render in Mobile Safari. This option uses WKWebView (WebKit) instead of UIWebView for HTML articles and web overlays on iOS 9 devices. An app running on iOS 8 devices will still render content using UIWebView. Note that WKWebView optimizes Javascript execution but may exhibit different behavior than UIWebView. For example, embedded video and audio files will not load in WKWebView. To test your HTML content and determine whether you want to enable this option in your app, choose the WKWebView option from the Settings menu in the AEM Preflight app, and preview your HTML content.
  • In-App Search Improvements The display transition of search results is smoother. Users can now share an article when viewed in search results.All non-internal metadata fields are now included in search results, including Short Title and Short Abstract. Deleted content no longer appears in search results in preflight apps.
  • Article Size Feedback When you upload an article file, you can view the size and view an estimate of how long it will take for the article to download. The file size of any large content file is displayed in yellow or red text to alert publishers of content that can be improved through optimization.
  • Bug Fixes and Enhancements This release include several bug fixes and performance enhancements, including improved performance in the On-Demand Portal when multiple publishing requests are occurring.

 Adobe Experience Manager Mobile 2016.4 Release

The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2016.4 on Tuesday, March 29.

Cordova APIs for AEM Mobile

The first phase of adding extensibility through Apache Cordova to iOS and Android apps is now available. With this release, you can take advantage of a set of APIs to extend the content in your apps and engage your users more deeply through device-level functionality. These JavaScript APIs are consistent across multiple device platforms and built on Web standards, so your content works on supported device platforms. This release consists of two sets of plug-in capabilities: Core Cordova plug-ins and App Runtime APIs.

  • Core Cordova plug-ins Supported plug-ins include Camera, Geolocation, Contacts, Calendar, File Storage, Media Capture, and more. Use these Cordova plug-ins to engage users with key device-level features. For example, using Geolocation, you could determine the store nearest to the user’s location. Or, using Contacts, you could allow users to add information to their Contacts list.
  • App Runtime APIs Use these app-based APIs to access specific information related to the app and its content from within an article. For example, you can obtain metadata information for an article or collection, determine whether the device is a phone or tablet, and check whether the user is entitled to a collection. These app APIs provide opportunities to extend integration with Adobe Marketing Cloud and business-critical third-party systems.

On-Demand Portal Enhancements

  • Partial match support for filtering content in Portal When viewing a list of articles or collections in the On-Demand Portal, you can now accelerate production by filtering content using partial words. For example, if you filter Article Title content based on “product,” you could display only article titles named “Key Products,” “Product Details,” and “Value Productions.”
  • Display article size in uploaded articles When you upload an article or display the Content File tab in article properties, you can see the size of the article file.
  • Entitlement enhancements Instead of using a form to obtain an integrator ID for entitlement services, you can now specify master settings and project settings to set up entitlement services for your apps.

Runtime Enhancements

  • In-App Search (Beta) in Android apps In-app searching is now supported in iOS, Android, and Windows apps, allowing users quicker access to the content in your app.
  • Analytics improvements Analytics now supports tracking Subscriber Type and Subscriber ID for iOS and Android devices.
  • Desktop Web Viewer is now in production Desktop Web Viewer is no longer considered Beta, allowing you to access users not only across devices, but also on the Web.
  • Social Sharing and Desktop Web Viewer integration If both Social Sharing and Web Viewer are enabled, links to shared articles open the Desktop Web Viewer on desktop and laptop browsers.
  • Deep linking in Android apps Deep linking capabilities previously available only in iOS apps are now available in Android apps. For example, you can create a link from outside the app that jumps to a specific article.

Additional Enhancements

  • Experience Manager Mobile PDF Export for Acrobat now available in general prerelease With the Experience Manager Mobile PDF Export for Acrobat, an Acrobat DC add-on, you can instantly convert any PDF into an article. You can join the prerelease program for this plug-in by signing in to the prerelease site.
  • Bug fixes and improved runtime performance Apps include bug fixes and improved performance.
