I was successfully able to return a single entity object from a REST API with a swagger definition and display the data in an adaptive form, but I want to know how I can display an array. AEM is not able to process the swagger definition for an array or map. I tried few combinations, can someone give me an example swagger definition of an REST endpoint which works with AEM data model. I am trying not to write code to do the same as I want it to make it easy for me to add endpoints at will and form authors should be able to just use it to populate a drop-down list on the adaptive form.
I created a top level object which nested the array I wanted and I was able to solve the issue like this. AEM Forms data model does not seem to recognize the array defined in the schema at the top level from what I can tell. Good thing is that now I am able to get my data and use it in forms without any custom code to call an RESTfull API.
