How can I use Externalizer in JavaScript Use API, I can easily use it using Java API. But I need this in JavaScript Use API to add canonical tag in head section of pages for SEO purpose.

Hi, Raghava.

You can use the sling global object (it is an instance of the SlingScriptHelper class) to obtain a reference to the Externalizer service.

Untested code:

var externalizer = sling.getService(Packages.com.day.cq.commons.Externalizer); var externalURL = externalizer.externalLink(resolver, resource.getPath());

Regards,

Daniel.

Hi, Raghava

Here is the example with CQ JS API - CQ.HTTP.externalize. You may try something like this.

 var currentPageContent = CQ.HTTP.get(CQ.HTTP.externalize(CQ.utils.WCM.getPagePath() + "/jcr:content.json"));

Thanks!

Vamsi, AFAIK CQ.HTTP is exposed by a client lib and therefore is not available to be used in a JavaScript Use (a server side element interpreted by Rhino).

Thanks Daniel it worked, 

Working code snip: 

            var externalizer = sling.getService(Packages.com.day.cq.commons.Externalizer);
            var externalURL = externalizer.externalLink(global.resource.getResourceResolver(),"publish", global.currentPage.getPath());

 

Thanks.
