Syntax for BasicJSONSelection based list-rendering profiles

A list-rendering profile that is based on BasicJSONSelection contains a set of name-value pairs called entries. This set of entries defines the set of available list properties and item attributes that are available for transforming external data into bean lists.

The following list of list-rendering profile entries shows a sample BasicJSONSelection based list-rendering profile that you can use for transforming JSON documents:
sample_json.Name=sample.profile.json
sample_json.BeanListProviderID=ibm.portal.ddc.json
sample_json.Type=BasicJSONSelection
sample_json.ListItemSelection=children

# Item Attribute Declarations:
sample_json.ItemAttribute.id=id
sample_json.ItemAttribute.title=title
sample_json.ItemAttribute.authorName=author.name
sample_json.ItemAttribute.authorEmail=author.email


# List Property Declarations:
sample_json.ListProperty.id=id

The names that you use in the list-rendering profile entries must adhere to a specific syntax to be parsed correctly by the HCL Digital Data Connector (DDC) for HCL Portal framework.

The format for the entry names is profile-id.key[.name[.meta-data-key]]. The meanings of the portions are described in the following list:
profile.id
This key specifies an internal ID. It is used only to correlate the entries that belong to the same profile.
key
This key identifies the list-rendering profile aspect that is affected by this entry. Valid values are Name, BeanListProviderID, ResourceBundleBaseName, NamespaceMapping, ListItemSelection, ItemAttribute, AssociatedItemAttribute, ComputedItemAttribute, ConstructedItemAttribute, ListProperty, ComputedListProperty, Extends, ShowInAuthoringUI, Shared, Escape.
name
This key specifies the name of the artifact that is to be defined, for example the attribute name. Names must not contain a period ( . ).
meta-data-key
Some list-rendering profiles entries support metadata that can be associated by using corresponding metadata keys. Valid values are Type, Default, Format, Depends, ShowInAuthoringUI.
The set of valid values for a list-rendering profile entry depend on the key that is used in the entry name. For more information, read the following topics.
