With the 6.4 release of AEM Forms, you are now able to use the new touch-enabled UI to create DataSource Configuration. The following video walks thru the steps to create the data source.

You will typically create DataSource for the following service types.

  • OData Service
  • RESTful Service
  • SOAP Web Service

When configuring RESTful service you will have to provide the swagger file. The swagger file describes the REST API that we will be using to fetch data for the statement.

When configuring SOAP Web Service you will have to provide WSDL URL. 

You can also specify authentication mechanisms for each of these service types.

After you have configured the data source, you can then use it as the basis for your form data model. For information on creating Form Data Model please click here.
