Avatar

Level 1

Hi,

 

I would like to know if it is possible to create a nested multiflied using generator. I tried this and failed. Is there a specific command for this case?

Hi,

You can let us know which generator have you used? There is no such tool provided OOTB.

Hi @palomacha1001 , I'm not sure how far AEM Component Generator helps for building Nested Multifield.

I recommend following these simple steps from an article by my colleague @Kiran_Vedantam .  https://allaembykiran.wordpress.com/2021/01/13/nested-multi-field/
