                    <lightning:button type="button" onclick="{!c.UpdatePnsuggestion}"   name="CMM Tooling and Accessories" label="{!sNo}">CMM Tooling and Accessories</lightning:button>
<lightning:button type="button" onclick="{!c.UpdatePnsuggestion}"  name="CMM Prewired" label="{!sNo}">CMM Prewired</lightning:button>

Js controller:

 UpdatePnsuggestion: function(component,event,helper){
   var va= event.getSource().get("v.name");
   var indexnumber= event.getSource().get("v.label");
    component.set("v.QliList.Part_number_Suggestion__c", va);  

I want to pass the button value to inputtext field {!Qli.Part_number_Suggestion__c}

In iteration n number of record when I click on a button it is copying the value to all records. But in my case, I would like to copy value only to the current row. Please Help me on this.

I am getting row number as well.

You are getting all the value because:-

You button markup is :- <lightning:button type="button" onclick="{!c.UpdatePnsuggestion}" name="CMM Prewired" label="{!sNo}">CMM Prewired</lightning:button> where name attribute has hardcoded value. i.e. CMM Prewired . The name is same for all the rows and hence giving you all the rows.

You need to assign a dynamic value from iteration variable like:- {!Qli.Name}

So you button markup will be:-

<lightning:button type="button" onclick="{!c.UpdatePnsuggestion}"  name="{!Qli.Name}" label="{!sNo}">CMM Prewired</lightning:button>

Then var va= event.getSource().get("v.name"); will give you selected name only.


I think the easiest solution is to set the name of your button to your indexVar (unforunately, aura:id cannot be dynamically set in an aura:iteration). This will allow you to get the index in your controller using: event.getSource().get("v.name"). You can then update the appropriate row in QliList based on that index.
