Content store selector

The content store selector provides a mechanism to control the store used for the content file associated with a particular content item.
Important: The content store selector, is not supported as 'Encrypted content store'.

By applying the cm:storeSelector aspect and setting its cm:storeName property to the name of a selectable store, the content will be automatically moved from its current location to the new store. The content store selector does not store content itself, it defines and manages those stores that are available for selection.

This allows storage polices to be implemented to control which underlying physical storage is used, based on your applications needs or business policies.

Important: Only the actual content is moved to the store. The childAssociations such as renditions (thumbnails, previews) and versions are not moved to the selected store. They will remain in the default primary store.
