AEM 6.4: Creating own filter

Magicr

In Author mode an author can choose some stored assests from assests finder, former content finder. To reduce the size of all founded assests some filters has being added by default (images, documents and so far). For one of our application there is a wish to provide zip and executables files. The upload into the DAM is not the problem. The problem is to find them into the assest finder. The provied filters do not cover .zip and .exe files.

The idea is now to create an own filter. How can I achieve this? Where is the placed to store it?

 

Thanks in advanced.

You can navigate to http://localhost:4502/libs/cq/core/content/tools/customsearch.html/conf/global/settings/dam/search/f... to customize the assets search form.

 

Upon selecting the File Type element you can see the datasource from where it's being populated. Refer the screenshot -

You can then overlay that node and add another datasource with your list of mime types.

 

Note - I see zip file type is already in the list so you may only need to add exe.
