AEM 65 - Touch UI Assets Console Set Default to List View


Default view of AEM Assets console is Card, change it to List

The following post uses a sling filter to set cookie cq-assets-files=list on login, another way of handling it is by overlaying /libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/views in /apps and changing the order of subnodes so list comes first

Demo | Package Install | Github

Default View - List

Browser Cookie set on Login


1) Create filter apps.experienceaem.assets.EAEMSetDefaultView for resource type granite/core/components/login and set the cookie cq-assets-files to list when empty

package apps.experienceaem.assets;

import org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils;
import org.osgi.framework.Constants;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Component;

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.Cookie;

        service = Filter.class,
        immediate = true,
        name = "Experience AEM Login page Filter",
        property = {
                Constants.SERVICE_RANKING + ":Integer=-99",
public class EAEMSetDefaultView implements Filter {
    private static String ASSETS_VIEW_COOKIE = "cq-assets-files";

    public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response, FilterChain chain) throws IOException, ServletException {
        SlingHttpServletRequest slingRequest = (SlingHttpServletRequest)request;
        SlingHttpServletResponse slingResponse = (SlingHttpServletResponse)response;

        Cookie cookie = slingRequest.getCookie(ASSETS_VIEW_COOKIE);

        if ( (cookie == null) || StringUtils.isEmpty(cookie.getValue())) {
            cookie = new Cookie(ASSETS_VIEW_COOKIE, "list");

        chain.doFilter(slingRequest, response);

    public void init(FilterConfig filterConfig) throws ServletException {

    public void destroy() {
