Make workflow title field mandatory

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

I'm using AEM 6.3 where when I execute the workflow from /assets.html, the workflow title field should be mandatory as per project requirement.

I've found OOTB node where I need to make the change. Please find below the path.

</libs/dam/gui/coral/content/commons/sidepanels/timeline/items/toolbar/items/workflows/items/form/items>

If I make a change in fieldLabel field then I can see the change reflected on the page but when I ado add required={Boolean}true, it's making it mandatory.

Any reason, why?

Regards,

Sumanth

Hi,

It shows popup when you filled details and make it empty but it won't disabled the button and allow workflow to be created

You need to write custom validation to fix this http://localhost:4502/libs/cq/gui/components/coral/common/admin/timeline/events/workflow/clientlibs/...

1.If you want you can keep required attribute in node

2. In above Js get the value of title $('form.cq-common-admin-timeline-toolbar-actions-workflow-form > input[name="workflowTitle"]').val()

3. Validate, if empty show the notify popup

$(window).adaptTo("foundation-ui").notify("",  Granite.I18n.get("Please select Title "), "error");

or keep submit button disabled until title is not filled.

you can modify

// workflow layer: listener of the select workflow field: handle "mandatory"

  $(document).on("change", selector + "-select", function (e) {

  $(selector + "-ok")[0].disabled = false;

  });

To

var workflowTitleSelector = "form.cq-common-admin-timeline-toolbar-actions-workflow-form > input[name='workflowTitle']";

$(document).on("change", selector + "-select", function (e) {

  if($(workflowTitleSelector).val() !== ""){

        $(selector + "-ok")[0].disabled = false;

  }

  else{

  $(selector + "-ok")[0].disabled = true;

  }

});

$(document).on("change", workflowTitleSelector, function (e) {

  if($(workflowTitleSelector).val()!==""){

        $(selector + "-ok")[0].disabled = false;

  }

  else{

  $(selector + "-ok")[0].disabled = true;

  }

});

This is the sample code, you can play with code in order to achieve whatever you want.

Thanks

I've added the piece of code provided by you but it doesn't seem to work. When I put the debug statement, I don't see the control coming to code on click of Start Workflow button.

I'm attaching the file, Please have a look if I've put the code at the right place.

Hi,

You need to update http://localhost:4502/libs/dam/gui/coral/components/admin/timeline/events/workflow/clientlibs/workfl...

Apologies for confusion.

you need to update     // workflow layer: listener of the select workflow field: handle "mandatory" section only.

Below is the code.

    // workflow layer: listener of the select workflow field: handle "mandatory"

var workflowTitleSelector = "form.cq-common-admin-timeline-toolbar-actions-workflow-form > input[name='workflowTitle']";

    $(document).off("change", selector + "-select").on("change", selector + "-select", function (e) {

        var v = e.selected;

        var tVal=$(workflowTitleSelector).val();

        console.log(tVal);

        if (e.selected === "" || tVal==="") {

            disable();

        }

        else {

            $(selector + "-ok").removeAttr("disabled");

            $(selector + "-action-ok").removeAttr("disabled");

        }

    });

    $(document).on("change", workflowTitleSelector, function (e) {

var tVal=$(workflowTitleSelector).val();

        console.log(tVal);

        if (tVal==="") {

            disable();

        }

        else {

            $(selector + "-ok").removeAttr("disabled");

            $(selector + "-action-ok").removeAttr("disabled");

        }

    });

Note : Please remove console.log once works fine.
