Scenario tree

Thu Oct 08, 2015 2:58 pm

Hello!
I wonder if there a feature in xml editor that allows to organize scenarios (into folders for example). If there isn't, then maybe there is some workaround that allows to do so? In any case it would be nice to add such option in "Transformation scenarios" window and even more greater to allow to bind xslt files to it. It is more logical to make xsl transformation as part of scenario than otherwise.

Hi,

It's not possible to create folders in the transformation scenarios view/dialog. A simple workaround is to use a certain prefix in the name of the scenarios so that they get grouped together.
e.g.
MY DITA Map PDF
MY DITA Map WebHelp

Not sure what you mean by "bind xslt files to it". It's the transformation scenario that is associated with the currently edited file (XML or XSL), not the other way around.
Note that there are two types of XML+XSLT transformation scenarios, one where the XML is the current file (XML transformation with XSLT) and another where the XSLT is the current file (XSLT transformation).
If you want the XSLT file to be associated with the scenario, open the XSLT and from its point of view create an XSLT transformation scenario.

I have about 3000 scenarios (organized in my company's web back office) and only 800 xsl stylesheets, so the only workaround I can think of is to create symlinks on xsl files(on my local PC) and bind to them different scenarios (works in Linux). But this is sometimes pain as 1 xsl file can be bind to 20 scenarious and since I haven't write a script that translates DB data to project I do it by hand.

Hi,

3000 scenarios seems excessive. Maybe separate the scenarios in several Oxygen projects.
To be honest, we never even considered thousands of scenarios within the same project.
Other than using the filter search at the top, I don't have a solution for locating a scenario in such a large scenario base.
