@krishker  There is no format such that, it takes the name attribute of your custom property.
For Eg: 

krishna_sai_0-1677472951563.png

you have a text field with ./sampleProperty 

Navigate to initial content of your template node and save that custom property with the value you want to come as part of page creation with this template

Now when you create a page using this template you can see that value you have given in the page properties.
Hope this helps,
Krishna

@krishker you can add properties to initial/jcr:content node if you want any properties that needs to come as part of page creation.

Eg: /conf/we-retail/settings/wcm/templates/content-page/initial/jcr:content

Hello Sai..

Thanks for the response . This is what I tried but the values are not shown in the newly created pages . Do we have a format to add the properties like jcr:xxx or cq:xxx . (Trying this in my local instance) .

 

Thanks

You can overlay or override the properties in your template and then you can provide the default values to the properties.
