redirect Page AEM Sling Model AEM

Firstly, let us assume a fundamental chain of interconnected pages within an AEM project. Here, our objective is to address logic on Login component and focus on handling the logic to navigate to the Dashboard page.

Next up, when you are using the Login Component in your AEM project, you declare a variable called redirectionPath in the properties and conduct to authoring it directly in the Touch UI dialog.

Since the Login page and Dashboard page each use a different template, we will approach new logic by leverage the Constructor method of the Login Sling Model.

public class LoginModelImpl implements LoginModel {

    private ResourceResolver resolver;

    private Page currentPage;

	private String redirectionPath;

    protected void init() {
        redirectionPath = "";
        Page root = currentPage.getAbsoluteParent(3);
        Iterator<Page> iterator = root.listChildren();
        while (iterator.hasNext()) {
            Page child = iterator.next();
            if (PageUtils.isPageOfTemplate(child, Constants.DASHBOARD_TEMPLATE)) {
                redirectionPath = resolver.map(LinkUtils.sanitizeLink(child.getPath()));

    public String getRedirectionPath() {
        return redirectionPath;

Note: We will look at all the child pages under the English page, check what type of pages they are, and compare that with the DASHBOARD_TEMPLATE. This helps us set up where to go after a successful login.

» LoginModel

Or you can review relationships among these packages and classes represented in a simple tree diagram.

If you prefer an alternative approach, you can use resourceType=granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/pathbrowser to facilitate authoring via the Touch UI dialog in the Login component.
