Variable Reuse with Keyrefs

You can reuse variables from variable warehouse maps with keyref attributes.

Overview

The following example shows that:
  • The “Warehouse Map” is added to the deliverable “Map A” through the mapref element with the @processing-role="resource-only" attribute assigned.
  • “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.

Example

The following example shows the variable reuse mechanism through keyref attributes in Heretto CCMS. The Content Editor indicates reused variables with a key icon and a gray background.

Figure 1. Variable Reuse Example.
The following example shows that:
  • The “companyName” variable is used in “Topic A”
  • The “productName” variable is used in “Topic A” and “Topic B”
  • The variables are reused from “Variable Warehouse Map” through keyref attributes and keyword elements
