We want to create custom metadata forms for custom mimetypes. But as per current implementation, that has to be present inside "default" folder and which forces to add default tab via inheritance. Is there a way to create these forms without inheritance OR to create them outside of default folder for custom MIME type.
Note that "Apply folder" will not work as we want the form based on MIME type of the asset and not based on the parent folder due to content organization of the business.
Thanks for the response. Below are the information you requested. While looking into it further, I feel the feature provided assumes that the any custom MIME types will need the inheritance and it "forces" these additional tabs and properties through inheritance. This is bit odd and it would have been nice to have a option to break the inheritance rather than having custom implementation 😞
Any ideas how we can achieve this through custom implementation.
1. I am using AEM 6.5 SP4
2. I see the tabs - Basic,Advanced,IPTC,IPTC Extension,Camera Data,Product Data
If it doesn't has to follow inheritance from "default", we can create custom metadata schema in the equal hierarchy as "default" and then apply to desired folders. But the actual requirement of associating it to mimeType might not be directly possible as is.
On a high level, looks like it calls for custom implementation.
Could you please provide inputs on the below
