AEM 6.1 Touch UI and cq:actions with 'editannotate' does not work

Avatar

Level 2

I have AEM 6.1 and wanna find out, how it works with our custom components. I figured out that in Touch UI the 'Configure' button for components does not appear, if I have cq:actions in Edit Config with entry 'editannotate'. So I'm not able to edit the component. Is this a bug? Or not allowed?

We use cq:actions to have a text with the component name in the context menu (for Classic UI)  and we also want to enable annotations. Is there a solution to have both?

 

Thanks!
Anne

You need to have a resourceType to support the TouchUI

I'm not sure if this answers my question. The component works in Touch UI, also the component's dialog, the only problem is, when I add cq:actions to Edit Config and use editannotate, the Configure button is not shown anymore. It also happens, if I take a plain AEM 6.1, seach for a libs/foundation component with cq:actions defined and add editannotate instead of edit (e.g. the forms/start component). So a missing resourceType isn't the problem I think.

Hi Anne,

I just tried this in a AEM6.0 and 6.1 instance and it worked in the 6.0 instance. So does seem like bug.

The way it should work is that the annotate part of "editannotate" is ignored as there is now an overlay which is used for doing annotations[1]. So if you change editannotate to edit it will allow you to edit and annotate in the touch ui, which probably doesn't help you in classic ui if you are using only cq:actions "edit".

Hm, if I use editannotate, also in Touch UI I can not annotate the component.

EDIT: Sorry, I meant "If I use edit, ...."

OK, thanks for your answers, I will log a ticket to Adobe.

Hi Anne,

did you review the section on "Annotating a Component - Touch-optimized UI" in [1]. Are you not able to annotate the component using the method described?

Yes, I followed the instructions. I tested with /libs/foundation/components/form/text.

No cq:actions: editing and annotation is possible

cq:actions with edit: editing possible, annotation not

cq:actions with editannotate: no editing possible, no annotation possible

Adobe has reported this bug to development, with request number CQ-52808. But I don't know when this fix is included in a hotfix or service pack, I could not find it here: https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/kb/aem61-available-hotfixes.html
Due to other difficulties with Touch UI we do not use it right now and therefore have no information about this bug.

are they going to provide a hotfix for this or going to rollout along with 6.2 release ?

I can't speak to the hotfix side, but I just now confirmed the editannotate issue is fixed in AEM 6.2 (no service pack).

editannotate correctly allows both edits and annotations on AEM 6.2.
