Creating component from using author instance (Similar to metadata)


Level 3


Hi All,

In our day to day AEM dev life, we come across various requirements which demands us to create similar dialogs over and again. One such day a simple thought crossed my mind - What can make my life simpler?

Below is the result of it --

Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary :Ability to create the component & dialog from the author's instance.

Need to have author console/editor where developers can open that editor and start creating the component and dialog.


Access should be given to the specific dev-users and only those users should be able to see the console and create the components.


Able to provide the widgets similar to the metadata profile so that developers will just go and create the widget by drag & drop functionality.


Ability to choose the root path of the project where the component needs to be created and other properties which are required for a component (eg., resourceType,component group).


Current/Experienced Behavior:We currently don't have any ability to create dialog from any editor pages.
Improved/Expected Behavior:The developer will have the feasibility to create the components and dialogs easily using this editor pages.
Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable): 
Customer-name/Organization name: 
Screenshot (if applicable): 
Code package (if applicable):  NA


Sample Screenshot of the metadata profile.




If we can create something similar for component creation as well, it would reduce a considerable amount of developer time. 

Add your thoughts 🙂
