It depends on the requirement (Are you looking to leverage UUID/GUIDs?). If you want to pre-populate the page-name in the dialog wizard, you can do that using JS. 

1. Define a clientlib - the JS (Assumping you want to use GUID/UUID or some other IDs which can easily generated on client side) file should inject a value into the AEM Page Name field. See dialog validations based on jQuery if you need more info on how to do this

2. Go to your page template component (if you're using OOTB one then overlay this node) and load the above clientlib in this  page component

 

Thats it.

 

When you create a page then it should pre-populate the value.

 

Let me know.

 

Thanks,

Singaiah

Hi @Nagarjuna06 ,

 

This is the node which is responsible for taking page name while creating a page.

You need to overlay this path if you want to customise Page Name.

 

/libs/wcm/foundation/components/basicpage/v1/basicpage/tabs/basic/items/column/items/title/items/pagename

 

Now, to generate unique id, you will have to write js for it. Please refer to below articles for few options.

Create a clientlib with JS which will target the the title name field of the page with the unique ID and add this clientlib as part of template's page policy.
