Asset Selector implementation

Parvathy_C

Hello All,

 

I need to access AEM Assets from an external application. I saw posts regarding this like I need to use the AssetSelector url (http://localhost:4502/aem/assetpicker) through iFrame tag in the external application.

1. Is this still the correct way to do this? 

2. If so, we need to access aem author url only from the external application?

Please provide your pointers.

Thanks,

Parvathy

Hi,

 

For question 1: Yes, that's how you expose the assets

You can use Asset Selector to expose the assets as a service. Please see below urls for more info:

I would recommend to look at the code in the acs-commons and see how they're implementing just to get an idea:

For Question 2: Depends on the requirement and how you're hosting the servers, you may have to make some more additional code changes plus dispatcher changes to make this work.

 

Thanks,

Singaiah

Yeah you can achieve it. Also as @Singaiah_Chintalapudi  mentioned it depends on the how you are managing both your server.
May be you also need to update the CORS ORIGIN to allow it on other domain.
