Dita profiling validation doesn't check topicrefs(?)

Post by Patrik » Thu Aug 11, 2016 2:34 pm


when validating my DITA Map from the DITA Maps Manager inconsistent profiling in topics is reported. But I had several cases of a topicref in a without profiling attributes to a topic with a profiling attribute.

e.g. map:

Code: Select all

<topicref href="product-1.dita"/>
and the topic product-1.dita:

Code: Select all

<topic product="P1>
<title>Product 1</title
When pulishing it with DITA-OT with a filter that ignores product-1 I get warnings and errors for missing files (probably because these files are not copied). I solved this by adding the profiling attributes to the topicref as well. But I actually would expect the Map Validation to report these inconsistencies as well!? Or did I mayby miss something?

I'm using oXygen 17.1.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Patrik,

I tend to agree with you, I will add an issue to add this additional check (link to completely filtered-out file) in a future version.
