In the installation guide, we are instructed to modify the cd_dynamic_conf.xml of the website which is to be Experience-Manager-Enabled. The example configuration and explanation are as follows:
<URLMappings> <StaticMappings> <Publications> <Publication Id="23"> <Host Domain="example.com" Port="91" Protocol="http" Path="/local-fr" /> </Publication> </Publications> </StaticMappings> <StorageMapping IdentifyPublicationByProperty="publicationUrl" /> </URLMappings>
This example makes it possible to retrieve metadata for a Web page located in the http://example.com:91/local-fr/ by checking the corresponding Page in the Publication with ID 23 in the Content Manager.
So far I have not been able to find documentation that explains what these settings do, or more to the point, what contribution they make to getting Experience manager working. I have managed to get this working by specifying the domain name of my website in the Domain attribute, and leaving the Path empty.
- What part does the dynamic conf play in the workings of Experience Manager?
- How can I verify this part of my setup, isolated from whether Experience Manager as a whole works
- What symptoms would Experience Manager display if this were not correctly configured?
- Where might I find conceptual explanations of what is going on here?
