AEM As Cloud deployment fails with dispatcher image issue

During my initial POCs with sample WKND code, I have noticed a behavior on AEM As Cloud service.

When ever I go for the pipeline and trigger it, the deployment fails with reason - dispatcher image failed. Some analysis was done around it from the logs and was able to resolve it as below.

I was doing my code checkout on windows and while unzipping I was using a software which was breaking the symlinks within dispatcher package. I got some warning during the unzip which I did not give much attention that point of time

To debug this, first I have commented out the dispatcher section in parent pom and deployed and tested the build. It worked on cloud.

Next I used another unzip tool (I remember Winzip was the tool which helped me. 7 Zip was removing symlinks. If it doesn't work, try other way around).

This time the symlink warning did not come durng my unzip and I have redeployed the code again. It worked perfectly.

Another option to fix this, may be, we can change those symlinks to real links if you know how to do that.

As a final option, still if you are unable to find out the reason, my recommendation is to reach out to spp help of Adobe, so that they can verify whether the envirnment was setup correctly.

Can we use Auditor with AEM Sites? How to use Auditor with AEM Sites?

All Adobe Cloud hosted AEM sites can use Auditor service through their cloud platform. Let us understand Auditor in detail.

What is Auditor?

We all know an efficiently implemented software/website can bring best in class business for a customer.

Adobe provides unified platform for family of digital marketing solutions and services through 'Adobe Experience Cloud'. Through this interface we can quickly access the cloud solutions and related core services. One such core service is 'Activation'.

Auditor is a feature of the Activation Core Service which was co-developed with ObservePoint, who are one of the industry experts in validating digital implementations. Auditor access the Adobe Experience Cloud customers implementations and provide a report on the ways to improve it.

The three steps involved as part of Auditor analysis are,

Scan: This tool can scan 100 pages of Adobe technology at a time through this. There are a set of advanced filters to include or exclude pages.

Understand: From the report received, analyze the data in detail based on tag presence, configuration and consistency.

Improve: The report provides recommendations. Based on the recommended approach, follow the best practice and improve your implementation.

Who can get access to Auditor and what all we can do with Auditor?
All Adobe experience cloud customer have access to Auditor for auditing 100 pages. As of now analytics, Experience cloud ID Service, Media Optimizer, Target technologies can get scanned through Auditor.

How does the Auditor report look?
As of now the scanned report is a combination of URL's which were scanned and issues found vs recommendations at granular level. We can have the report downloaded in a spreadsheet format too. Report gives recommendations on 'how to improve your implementations to align with best practices'

How to run the scan?
