Ditaval- Excluded topics are appearing in TOC

Post by axhxu » Thu Jun 27, 2019 3:59 pm

Wondering if there is a parameter that will fix the following issue or is causing the issue;

We are putting ditaval attributes on root topic elements:

Code: Select all

<task id="ikl1560541894952" otherprops="future-content" xml:lang="en-us">
Our ditaval file has:

Code: Select all

    <prop action="exclude" att="otherprops" val="future-content"/>
Our expectation then is topic should be ignored when generating the output but it is currently appearing in the TOC and dropdown menus as ***.

Is there a setting our parameter that needs to be set that would exclude ditaval filtered content from the TOC?

Hi Arron,

You need to profile out the entire topic not by setting the profiling attribute inside the topic but by setting the profile attribute in the DITA Map on the topicref which refers to the topic.
