Hi @Dinu_Arya,

You will have to do 2 changes to achieve your goal:

  1. Overlay /libs/wcm/core/content/editor/jcr:content/sidepanels/edit/items/tabs/items/assetsTab/items/filterPanel/items/search/items/searchpanel/items/assettype, so under apps you should have structure like below. Change emptyText and text properties to Documents

  2. Overlay /libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/editors/clientlibs/core/js/assetController/image/ImageAssetPanel.js, as a result you should have following structure under apps /apps/cq/gui/components/authoring/editors/clientlibs/core/js/assetController/image/ImageAssetPanel.js Set mimeType like below.

    This change is needed if you want to see Documents as initial list under Assets Finder.

You can use the Granite.author.ui.assetFinder library to load the Documents when Side Panel is opened. Here is the snippet of js code you can use to achieve it:  

channel.on("cq-sidepanel-beforetoggle", function() {
       // Set the Documents as the selection
        Granite.author.ui.assetFinder.$el.find('.rail-view.active .assetfilter.type').find("coral-select-item[value='Documents']")[0].selected=true;
       // trigger change event to load the Documents
        let changeEvent = new Event('change');
        Granite.author.ui.assetFinder.$el.find('.rail-view.active .assetfilter.type')[0].dispatchEvent(changeEvent);
    });

Load the above script to a clientlib with categories - cq.authoring.editor.core

@LVajrala too which AEM version are you referring? In AEM 6.5.14 it is not marked as an granite:InternalArea so it can be safely changed via overlay.
