Adobe Experience Cloud (AEC)

The Adobe Experience Cloud (AEC) is a collection of integrated online marketing and web analytics products. Adobe’s aim is to create a single integrated solution for Customer Experience Management (CXM).

AEC was previously known as the Adobe Marketing Cloud (AMC).

Adobe Experience Cloud includes the following eight solutions:

Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Forms

Adobe Experience Manager Forms, or AEM Forms, is itself a component of Adobe Experience Manager.

AEM Forms is marketed as an easy-to-use solution to create, manage, publish, and update complex digital forms while integrating with back-end processes, business rules, and data.

Integrating Secure Email with AEM Forms

In the case of the prospect we spoke to, they had a special business requirement for AEM Forms: They needed to have the form data sent via secure email.

Due to the fact they are affiliated with the healthcare industry, the form data will contain protected health information (PHI). As we’ve discussed at length, the presence of PHI in an email means that message must be HIPAA compliant.

After some research, we found a way to integrate the Paubox Email API with Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 Forms, which appears to be an on-premise solution.

As of this writing, it is assumed the same configuration options are available with AEM Forms, which is a cloud-based service. We were not able to access a demo version of AEM Forms, nor were we able to find any configuration options for it.

Here’s how to do it:

Part I: Sign up for the Paubox Email API

The recommended solution for configuring AEM Forms with the Paubox Email API is to use the SMTP Server option.

Part II: Configure Adobe Experience Manager Forms

Once you have your Paubox Email API credentials in place, you will next configure AEM Forms to send secure email via Paubox.

This is accomplished by configuring the Day CQ Mail Service. This can be done by pointing your browser to Felix Configuration Manager (this link points to localhost).
