How to display in adaptive form data returned as array from REST API


Level 1


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.


Appreciate the help. Thanks.

AEM Forms seems to recognize an array inside an object but not an array of objects at the top level. So I am using that format now. Thanks for your reply.

Hi, So what is the scenario that you need help with.


Level 1

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.  



Your swagger file needs to define an array of objects. You can then map the objects in Adaptive Forms. In the form data model make sure you have selected return array of objects settings
