Hi,

Please refer the link below. It might help you in achieving your requirement (store values in JSON format). The aim of the below tutorial is to store and retrieve the values in the form of JSON Array from crxde/JCR repository.

http://www.aemcq5tutorials.com/tutorials/touchui-multifield-component-using-htl/

Please let us know if you still face any difficulty in implementing this.

We hope this information helps!

HI TechAspect,

I have already tried that, in this blog they have mentioned that by using the property on fieldset acs-common-nested="" will store the data in JSON  format but in my case i have already declared this property but still it is saving in String[] format for all the fields individually. can you please suggest.

Thanks

Hi,

We were sucessfully able to implement your use case by following the link that we had mentioned earlier. It's working fine for us.

However, we've uninstalled acs-commons package and see that the values are getting saved in String[] format. So possible reason behind your issue is, you might not have acs-commons package installed.

Try installing acs-commons package. This should resolve your issue.

We hope this helps!

Hi,

Here is the link to download acs-commons package:

https://adobe-consulting-services.github.io/acs-aem-commons/

Once you download the package, you can simply upload and install it from package manager.

We hope this helps!

The data will be stored as JSON--

Does the same apply to classic UI as well or is there any different approach?

I am trying to switch from Classic UI (ACS Commons Multi Field Panel) To Coral Touch UI and am following the demo linked above but the data is getting saved to the JCR as a String Array for each item under the multi field instead of saving them all under the same property.

You can see below that they are getting stored as flag, link, and title. Instead of being stored as JSON under myUserSubmenu

EDIT: I am running AEM 6.5 and ACS Commons 4.0

This is the Dialog I am using.

I am running into the same issue as you. I am running AEM 6.5 and acs 4.3.2.


@smacdonald2008 or anyone else at Adobe, is it possible to store the values as json on AEM 6.5?
