Core components - Download - adds .coredownload to the filename

Avatar

Level 2

Why core Download component (https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/experience-manager-core-components/using/components/download....) adds .coredownload to the end of filename (before the extension)?

e.g. link to any /content/dam/.../filename.pdf file is rendered as /content/dam/.../filename.coredownload.pdf

 

Is there a way to remove it ?

Why doesn't it reference an asset by using a direct asset path in DAM (fileReference property) ?

Core components added coredownload selector to path to trigger https://github.com/adobe/aem-core-wcm-components/blob/master/bundles/core/src/main/java/com/adobe/cq...

which prepare the assets and deliver as an attachment otherwise the assets will be open in new page. Like creating any other link using RTE or other component.

 

If you will remove it from the URL then servlet will not be triggering to prepare assets.
