we have one requirement like one user group have allowed to see the one folder in AEM DAM. However same user want to search the asset from entire DAM (from all folder ) on pathfield popup. How we can achieve this?
When we open pathfield popup, request goes to get the path heiarachy, the request looks something like this:http://localhost:4502/mnt/overlay/granite/ui/content/coral/foundation/form/pathfield/picker.html?_charset_=utf-8&path=&root=%2fcontent&filter=hierarchyNotFile&selectionCount=single&_=1595528365580
Now if you look at the path /libs/granite/ui/content/coral/foundation/form/pathfield/picker, it points to sling:resourceType to /libs/granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/picker/picker.jsp.
User session is used to extract items for pathfield, so you will have overlay this jsp to apps to use some system user to get results for folders which are not accessibe to current user.
Hope it helps!
