    User Synchronization vs. Reverse Replication


      We are planning to use AEM 6.3 Communities as side-by-side with some existing web sites that use Closed User Groups for areas that are for registered users only.


      Should we use the new User Sync exclusively to replicate external users and group membership between Publishers?

      • If so, how do we add new CUG groups from the Author and how do authors add/remove members from CUG groups?
      • I presume that these users and groups cannot be managed through the tunnel service?


      If not, is Reverse Replication still best practice for CUG management where users can edit their own profile data and authors can edit CUG membership?

      • Is it supported to run User Sync on Community users while running Reverse Replication for other (subfolder) users and groups?
