Automated CI with AEM Cloud service

With the introduction of RDEs in AEMaaCS earlier this year, we now have the potential to deploy code much faster to a cloud environment

We will showcase how we can automate actions with RDE environments from CI/CD pipelines and how to leverage them to run multiple types of validations like integration test, ui tests or lighthouse performance tests.

At the end we will share a customer perspective of RDE integration with the GitLab CI system.

Deploying features to a short-lived and disposable AEMaaCS instance prior to code merge not only shortens your feedback loop, but also makes overall delivery less error prone, as the entire test suite (including functional and UI tests) can be triggered much earlier in the process increasing the confidence of the code pushed without having to wait for the Production Pipeline to fail.
