    User specific data prefill


      I was wondering if there was a well defined way to prefill a form with user specific data.

      I see the method for populating via the sling request data attribute

      https://helpx.adobe.com/aem-forms/6/prepopulate-adaptive-form-fields.html#Supportedprotoco lsforprepopulatinguserdata

      But my forms are being used in other systems, that do not have AEM controlled jsps.


      Ideally I would like use the http protocol dataRef, which would make a call to an AEM servlet to get the desired XML.

      http://localhost:4502/content/forms/af/xml.html?wcmmode=disabled&dataRef=http://localhost: 4502/bin/dataprefill.xml

      However, when doing this the user's session is not available because the call to http://localhost:4502/bin/dataprefill.xml is made server side instead of being made by the user.


      Is there a way to tie this servlet request to a user's session so I could make use of AEM sessions the same way normal requests are able to?

      If not, how difficult would it be to overwrite the OOTB call to dataRef url to be able to modify it to pass along the cookies (and thus the session) for that user to the dataRef url call?
