Hi @srinivas_chann1,

In general there are 3 main options in terms of forms in AEM:

  1. Solution that is part of AEM Core Components. It provides Form container with few OOTB actions (you can also write your own action), and set of form elements like input, button etc.
    1. General documentation
      1. Adobe docs: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-core-components/using/wcm-components/form...
      2. Github page: https://github.com/adobe/aem-core-wcm-components/tree/main/content/src/content/jcr_root/apps/core/wc...
    2. Step by step guide how to create custom action that can by used in Form Container https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager/form-core-component-submis...
  2. AEM Forms - this is a enterprise form oriented solution that provides multiple options in terms of form design, data processing and modeling, Adobe Sign integration, pdf generation and many more. This is an ultimate tool that will allow you to build complex multi step form etc. However it requires additional license fee - so it can be treat as an OOTB solution. It's provided as an add-on package that you have to install on your AEM instance. You will have to contact Adobe Sales to get details about AEM Forms price via https://business.adobe.com/pl/products/experience-manager/forms/pricing.html

  3. Build your own custom solution - this could be a good compromise if your company does not need such a complex tool like AEM Forms, but at the same time Forms from Core Components are not allow you to achieve your goal. Custom solution does not mean you have to build everything from scratch, in many cases you can extend Forms from Core Components.

Summarizing, if you are looking for OOTB solution, then you should explore Core Components form first.
