We've found that when we upload a package to AEM 5.6 with /etc/tags in it, after it's imported the /etc directory completely disappears in CRXDE Lite. It appears fine in CRXDE and in CRX Explorer but everything in /etc is gone in CRXDE Lite. It's only when we upload a package that includes tags. If it includes blueprints, designs, mappings, etc... almost anything else we want to upload to /etc it's fine. Just tags.
I see the same thing with I use vlt rsync to copy /etc/tags from a remote repository to my local... CRXDE Lite no longer shows anything under /etc.
Anyone know what's going on here?
There is an issue that CRXDE lite stops displaying a subtree if a node and a property have the same name. Maybe you have a "tags" property on the /etc node.
It's interesting. Once you mentioned that I started narrowing down the namespaces I use to figure out if any individual one is causing problems. It wasn't until I added our /etc/tags/hidden cq:Tag that CRXDE wiped out the entire /etc folder from CRXDE Lite. So my guess is, since "hidden" is a property set on /etc/tags, that's what causes the issue. When I delete that property from /etc/tags, CRXDE Lite returns to normal.
So I guess the next question is, how does one have a hidden namespace then?
