Develop helpful button component in AEM 6.3

Hi,

I have a requirement to create helpful button component which will be used in all the article pages. On clicking the button, we should increment the count for unique users. Once the logged in user click on the button, we should disable the button for that specific user on that page. I'm looking for a best approach to implement this. Could anyone throw some light on this please.

Thanks in advance.

Refer OOB rating component.

You can use the similar logic to implement this functionality.

I would use a sling model for this requirement.

Scott, we do not have the users stored in AEM. So, my main concern is with respect to storing the user info(unique identifier) as we have a lot of users. We need to store the user info to determine if a user has already liked the article. Should we use an external DB to store this data (user info specific to an article).

Previously when we used rating component it was written in jsp in cq 5.6.

Now i think you can refer this component-

Using Ratings

No, we have not used OOTB Rating component. I was mainly looking for suggestions around storage as we do not have the user data stored in AEM. Now we have decided to use an external DB for storing the unique user identifier along with article page path.
