Exposing a multifield component as json


Level 1


I'm faced with a problem where I need to expose a multifield component as json in a specific way. When accessing the url of the component.model.tidy.json the json I currently get is like this:

What I would like to do is to eliminate the "jcr:primaryType":"nt:unstructured" from every property but I found no way to do it without creating my custom exporter.

Here is my java class:

import org.apache.sling.api.resource.Resource;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.Exporter;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.Model;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.Optional;

import javax.inject.Inject;

@Exporter(name = "jackson", extensions = "json")

@Model(adaptables = Resource.class, resourceType = "/apps/wcax-core/components/content/abs-generic-list/v1/abs-generic-list")

public class AbsGenericList {

   private Resource genericlist;

  public Resource getGenericlist() { return this.genericlist; }


If anyone has any idea on how to get rid of that property it would be of great help.

Do you want to process the json output to eliminate the repeating property or you want to get the json output without the repeating property at the first place ?

You need to customize it as per your requirement.

Ideally, I would want to get the json output without the repeating property.
