  1. Could you please suggest what too do if I want to remove the path field or make it not required? I want to do this because i have created another select field from where i choose predefined urls and want to ignore path field at all.

  2. Sreekanth, does this work with AEM Cloud ? My client is using this exact code and we are upgrading their 6.2 version to AEM Cloud. I somehow fixed the JS issues , but now the pathfield is broken and I am only getting a textfield instead of pathbrowser
