AEM 6560 - Sites Editor Asset Finder set Default Folder by Sreekanth Choudry Nalabotu

Abstract

Goal
Sites pages loaded for editing show the assets in /content/dam root by default. This post is for setting the path to a specific project folder...

Solution

1) Add a client library to add editor hook. Login to CRXDE Lite (http://localhost:4502/crx/de), create folder /apps/eaem-asset-finder-default-folder


2) Create node /apps/eaem-asset-finder-default-folder/clientlib of type cq:ClientLibraryFolder, add String[] property categories with value [cq.authoring.editor.hook.assetfinder], String[] property dependencies with value lodash.


3) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-asset-finder-default-folder/clientlib/js.txt, add

default-folder.js

4) Create file (nt:file) /apps/eaem-asset-finder-default-folder/clientlib/default-folder.js, add the following code

(function ($, $document, author) {
var self = {},
IMAGES_FINDER = "Images",
PATH_FIELD = "foundation-autocomplete[name='assetfilter_image_path']",
DEFAULT_FOLDER = '/content/dam/we-retail';

var searchPath = self.searchRoot,
imageServlet = '/bin/wcm/contentfinder/asset/view.html',
itemResourceType = 'cq/gui/components/authoring/assetfinder/asset';

self.loadAssets = function (query, lowerLimit, upperLimit) {
if(_.isEmpty(searchPath)){
searchPath = DEFAULT_FOLDER;
$(PATH_FIELD)[0]._input.value = DEFAULT_FOLDER;
}

var param = {
'_dc': new Date().getTime(),
'query': query.concat("order:\"-jcr:content/jcr:lastModified\" "),
'mimeType': 'image',
'itemResourceType': itemResourceType,
'limit': lowerLimit + ".." + upperLimit,
'_charset_': 'utf-8'
};

return $.ajax({
type: 'GET',
dataType: 'html',
url: Granite.HTTP.externalize(imageServlet) + searchPath,
data: param
});
};

self.setSearchPath = function (spath) {
searchPath = spath;
};

author.ui.assetFinder.register(IMAGES_FINDER, self);
}(jQuery, jQuery(document), Granite.author));
