Variable Reuse with Conkeyrefs
You reuse variables from variable warehouse topics with conkeyref attributes.
- The “Variables Warehouse” topic is added to the deliverable “Map A” through the keydef element with the
@keysattribute assigned.Important: Including variable warehouse topics through the keydef element with the
@keysattribute assigned is necessary for the variable reuse mechanism to operate properly. By default, keydef elements are not included in the output.
- “Variable A” is used in “Element A” in “Topic A”.
- “Variable B” is used in “Element A” and in “Element D”. The elements are in different topics.
The following examples show the variable reuse mechanism through conkeyref attributes in Heretto CCMS. The Content Editor indicates reused variables with gray background.
