Adobe Connect 9 Events | CQ Integration multiple domains


How to Integrate your Adobe Connect 9 server with an external CQ server across multiple domains

With your Adobe Connect 9 software, if you have Event management functionality enabled and you are setting it up with an external CQ server, that’s listed on a separate domain, different from the Adobe Connect domain, here are a few additional settings that need to be configured, to make it fully functional :

Environment :

  • Adobe Connect 9 Licensed
  • Applies to when Adobe Connect and CQ server are on separate domains

Adobe Connect FQDN :,

CQ server FQDN :

Steps to Follow :

 Navigate to the {root-install}\Breeze\ folder

  Open the custom.ini file in an editor

 Add the following parameter at the end of the file :


  Now Restart the Adobe Connect services

 If you are in a cluster, perform this activity on all the nodes

 This should be helpful in making your Events module entirely functional with your Adobe Connect 9.

 This allows CQ server to authenticate itself from inside Adobe Connect while viewing/modifying event related information(registration,templates,catalog etc), without requiring users to authenticate separately on the CQ server, while they are already logged in to the Adobe Connect server.
