AEM 6.5 Metadata profile search on the Metadata profile page

Level 7
Level 7



Was wondering if anyone knew of a way to customize the search functionality within Aem 6.5.8 and above  to have an ability to search for metadata profiles on the metadata profile page , especially when the list is huge within the page so as to be able to filter and choose options such as copy etc 

is adobe planning to include this feature anytime soon ?

Hi @NitroHazeDev,


You can write custom code to add custom location search. Please check here:


Hope this helps.

Hey @KiranVedantam1992 

Is this something that is doable in 6.5.8

I could use this option but are there any references to show implementation step wise? I do not find anyone implementing the omnisearch for metadata profile online

It does not appear that this code referenced works for 6.5.8 .
I tried adding a filter to the metadata profile page similar to fragments /libs/cq/experience-fragments/content/experience-fragments/jcr:content/rails/omnisearchfilter but

a. Metadata profile is marked a granite internal area and hence overlay is not possible /libs/dam/gui/content/processingprofilepage/metadataprofiles 

b. The search filter although helps bring up search but does not search at the location of Metadata profiles
