is Prefilling possible AEM Core Forms Component ?

Avatar

Level 1

I'm currently working on integrating the Google Address API to enable autofill for the address section within AEM Core forms component(not adaptive forms). I'm curious to know whether it's feasible to automatically populate additional AEM form fields such as street, city, and postal code based on the search response obtained from the Google Address API. I would greatly appreciate your insights on this matter.

Hi @albertnthomas 

Yes, it's possible to prefill fields within the AEM Core Forms Component using data obtained from the Google Address API. This integration would allow you to automatically populate additional AEM form fields like street, city, and postal code based on the address data retrieved from the API.

Here's a high-level overview of how you could achieve this:

 

  1. API Integration: Integrate the Google Address API into your AEM application to fetch address data based on user input or other triggers.

  2. Data Extraction: Once you receive the API response, extract the relevant address components such as street, city, and postal code.

  3. Field Population: Use JavaScript or another suitable scripting language to dynamically populate the corresponding form fields within the AEM Core Forms Component with the extracted data.

  4. User Interaction: Determine how the autofill process should be triggered. This might involve user selection from suggested options or after a successful search.

  5. Validation: Validate the autofilled data to ensure it conforms to the expected format and content.

  6. Testing: Thoroughly test the integration under various scenarios to ensure accurate autofill functionality.

 

Thanks

Hi Albert,

 

Definitely, Adobe Core Forms Components support automatically populating fields with any information you may desire.

 

You may need to add few custom clientlibs, just to help Forms tailor customer journey for your needs.
