Check asset status (publish/unpublished) in Asset Finder on Page load (AEM 6.2)

Community Advisor

I've a requirement where it's required to check the Publish status to Published on component dialog open in AEM 6.2


I've tried checking the DOM changes on click on but I don't see the value e.g. checked=true getting added in the input field or not able to find how should perform click event pragmatically on radio button here?

Could anyone help me regarding this?

Try this

(function ($, $document, author) {

    "use strict";

    $document.on('foundation-contentloaded', onAssetFinderLoad);

    function onAssetFinderLoad(){

        $.ajax( "/jcr:content.json").done(checkStatus);


    function checkStatus (data){

        var q = data["cq:lastReplicationAction"];

        if(q && q == "Activate"){

            $( "input[type=radio][value=Activate]")[0].checked = true;  // use a different selector for radio buttons in case of a conflict/customization

           $( "input[type=radio][value=Deactivate]")[0].checked = false;


        else {

          $( "input[type=radio][value=Activate]")[0].checked = false;

          $( "input[type=radio][value=Deactivate]")[0].checked = true;



})($, $(document),;

Add it under 'cq.authoring.dialog' category.

Hi Gaurav,

Thanks for the code.

The code I made it work as per the requirement. But, what's happening is when I try to check the radio button using JavaScript/jQuery, that part is working fine as it's checking the radio button but when I try to trigger click event then it has no effect and nothing appears in the filter. However, if we click on radio button physically(manual click) then it appears in the filter.

Any idea?

You need to call this javascript on a click event of the radio button.

Did you use to trigger the click event or some other way?

Did you apply debug breakpoint or check console logs to see if the issue is with trigger event or otherwise with code? Do you see modified DOM after the trigger event has finished processing?

Can you test the same code in different browser to rule out any issues with your source code?

Can you share the code that is not working?
