In our project, we are using editable templates and core components combination as the foundation for Content As A Service Api's (CaaS). Also, we have components wherein certain dialog fields are populated using design policy values (cqDesign).
As the policies are shared across templates, in the Policy console, the Select policy dropdown shows all policies created for that component across all templates. This list is big and the large drop-down select values are not very intuitive and it is also a usability issue.
My question is - do we have a mechanism to filter policies that show up in the Select policy dropdown - say based on a certain flag or parameter like template name or path. I want to show only those values(policies) in the Select policy dropdownwhich are applicable to the current editable template.
This will involve custom implementation and not available OOB.
Existing flow works like :
The policies that we create are saved in generic location - /conf/<<customproject>>/settings/wcm/policies in the hierarchy of component path and not specific to templates.
Given the way it is saved and with the help of resource type of policy (which is the component's resource type), it makes sense to lists all policies configured as part of a specific component and not per template basis.
Datasource logic for the same is available in /libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/dialog/policy/policydatasource/policydatasource.jsp
Policy related data attributes are framed in /libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/dialog/policy/policy.jsp
