Requirement is to have a auto-complete text field in Asset metadata editor to enter user name.
Author should be able to enter user id/name, which gets validated against external user list in LDAP and show suggestion list with available users.
Ex - Author enter text string as "adm", he will get list of the usernames start with "adm".
(External users - users who are not in AEM user list).
AEM provides Authrizable field, but it is limited to AEM internal users.
AEM 6.4 (SP-4)
Any suggestions/examples please.
you can use Autocomplete field e.g. with custom datasource which pull the users from AEM and LDAP(if user can be expose by service etc.)
