Hello,

I am trying to initialize Site or Folder field to a default folder using the Rest API. This the syntax I am using:

dataObj.siteOrFolder = "+inode: 371f7333-4738-47fc-91d7-3462ab08504a +identifier: 371f7333-4738-47fc-91d7-3462ab08504a";

The contentlet is saved but the Site or Folder is always set to default host.

So I tried using a custom field with the following code:

<div id="HostSelector" name="HostSelector" dojoType="dotcms.dijit.form.HostFolderFilteringSelect" onChange="updateHostFolderValues('$fieldAux.getVelocityVarName()');" includeAll="true" value="$!fieldDefaultValue"></div>
<input type="hidden" name="$fieldAux.getVelocityVarName()" id="$fieldAux.getVelocityVarName()" value="$!fieldDefaultValue"/>
<input type="hidden" name="hostId" id="hostId" value=""/>
<input type="hidden" name="folderInode" id="folderInode" value=""/>
<br />
<script>
function updateHostFolderValues(field){
if(!isInodeSet(dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('value'))){
dojo.byId(field).value = "";
dojo.byId('hostId').value = "";
dojo.byId('folderInode').value = "";
}else{
var data = dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('selectedItem');
if(data["type"]== "host"){
dojo.byId(field).value = dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('value');
dojo.byId('hostId').value = dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('value');
dojo.byId('folderInode').value = "";
}else if(data["type"]== "folder"){
dojo.byId(field).value = dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('value');
dojo.byId('folderInode').value = dijit.byId('HostSelector').attr('value');
dojo.byId('hostId').value = "";
}
}
}
function isInodeSet(x){
return (x && x != undefined && x!="" && x.length>15);
}
</script>

However, $fieldAux.getVelocityVarName() and $fieldDefaultValue do not resolve. 

Any help to achieve Site or Folder default would be greatly appreciated.

To initialize Site or Folder,  set it to the folder identifier like this:

dataObj.siteOrFolder = "371f7333-4738-47fc-91d7-3462ab08504a";

Thanks.I appreciate that you answered your own question,as this may come in handy in the future.
I absolutely search the forum on my own questions and often get an answer - and sadly, sometimes the answer is one I wrote and then forgot.
