This page explains how to add a form to a simple page.


To add a form to a simple page:

  • Create JSON form definition for a new form. For more information, see Form Definition - JSON Structure.

  • In the ImpEx file, create a YFormDefinition with a reference to the newly created JSON definition:

      INSERT_UPDATE YFormDefinition; applicationId[unique = true]; formId[unique = true]; version; title; description; content[translator = de.hybris.    platform.commerceservices.impex.impl.FileLoaderValueTranslator];
      ; insurance ; new_form ; 1 ; New Form ; "New Form" ; $siteResource/forms/new-form.json
  • Create a new CMS component (e.g.,”NewFormComponent”) with a reference to the previously added YFormDefinition:

      INSERT_UPDATE CMSFormSubmitComponent; $contentCV[unique = true];    uid[unique = true]; name; visible; &componentRef; applicationId;   formId
      ; ; NewFormComponent ; New Form Component ; true ;  NewFormComponent ; insurance ; new_form
  • Connect the component with a page through a content slot:

      INSERT_UPDATE ContentSlot; $contentCV[unique = true]; uid[unique    = true]; name; active; cmsComponents(&componentRef);
      ; ; Section2Slot-newFormPage ; Section2 Slot for New Form Page ;    true ; NewFormComponent
