Selections Plugin

The Selections plugin is a default plugin, i.e. it is automatically included in  new projects created using the Maven archetype.

Introduction

What is the selection plugin?

The selection plugin provides five field plugins to be used within the CMS editor.

  • Static Dropdown: a single select or dropdown with static configuration in your document type.
  • Dynamic Dropdown: a single select or dropdown configured to read options from a service backed by a value list document in the CMS.
  • Dynamic Multiselect: a multi select list editing a multi-valued property, configured to read options from a service backed by a value list document in the CMS. Variants are multi select list, checkboxes and palette (shootbox).
  • Radio Group: a single select radio group configured to read options from a service backed by a value list document in the CMS.
  • Boolean Radio Group: a single select radio group editing a boolean property. The labels for 'true' and 'false' can be read from a value list document in the CMS.
