Re: ditavalref ditaval file not recognized and excluded during processing

You should not be able to use key references on ditavalref--the DTD for your map should not allow @keyref on <ditavalref>, so the fact that you have it there suggests something is not right with the DTD (or else the document is not actually valid).

From the DITA 1.3 spec:

2.4.4.5 Branch filtering: Implications of processing order

Because the branch filtering process can result in new or renamed keys, key scopes, or URIs, the full effects of
the branch filtering process MUST be calculated by processors before they construct the effective map and key
scope structure.

Note: The @keyref attribute and related attributes are explicitly disallowed on <ditavalref>. This prevents
any confusion resulting from a @keyref that resolves to additional key- or resource-renaming metadata.

So your map structure is not correct per the spec--you'll need to make direct URI references to your ditaval files.

Cheers,

E.

I'm not sure what is going on. I'm trying to setup a map that will have
different sections that have the same content but will be filtered with
with ditvals for different results. My main map references several other
maps for those sections and each section/submap uses a different
ditaval.

The setup and content of these objects are correct and validate. But
when I run them through the DITA-OT version = 3.4.1 OT, it looks like
the dtaval files are not being recognized as ditaval files and they are
being stripped out. End result is that my content is not being filtered.
Here are the OT messages

will not generate output because because all content has been filtered
out by DITAVAL "exclude" conditions, or because the file is not valid
DITA.

That ditaval file looks like this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<val>
<prop action="include"/>
<prop action="include" att="platform"/>
<prop action="include" att="audience"/>
<prop action="include" att="rev"/>

<prop action="include" att="deliveryTarget"/>
<prop action="include" att="product"/>
<prop action="exclude" att="product" val="prod_b"/>
<prop action="include" att="product" val="prod_a"/>
</val>


My root map has this

The map using that particular ditaval is structured this way

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE map PUBLIC "-//PINGIDENTITY//DTD DITA Map//EN"
"PingIdentityMap.dtd">
<map id="tur1599578307311" xml:lang="en-us">

<topicmeta> </topicmeta>

<ditavalref keyref="dyr1599584459162" processing-role="resource-only"/>
<topicref keyref="vln1599578426163"/> <!-- topic with ditavals -->
<topicref keyref="sfq1599578470970"/> <!-- topic product A -->
<topicref keyref="wkc1599578503581"/> <!-- topic product B -->
<topicref keyref="vva1599578551353"/> <!-- topic all -->

</map>

I've attached a zipfile of the complete fileset.

I looked to see if there was any other setup required. I thought maybe a
processing-role was required, but I see that ditavalref defaults to
resource only.
