Ditaval not filtering nested topics

I have a ditamap with several nested topics describing different products. When I run my ditaval, it filters correctly at the root map level and inside of topics but it does not filter nested topics.

I've tried rejigging the ditaval file to both exclude all but my desired property or only include my desired property. Neither works.

Help, please.

Hi Wanda

 

Can you share a sample structure of the ditamap or possibly mail us so we can look into it.

 

Thanks

The problem turned out to be multiple values in the filtering attribute.

I have discovered that the issue is that there are multiple values in the attributes where the ditaval was not filtering. I added an entry in a test ditaval that included multiple value props and that filtered correctly.

 

So this worked:

 

<val>

    <prop att="props" val="OGC" action="exclude"/>

    <prop att="props" val="OGEP" action="include"/>

    <prop att="props" val="OGEXO" action="exclude"/>

    <prop att="props" val="OGC OGEXO" action="exclude"/>

</val>

 

The alternative was to create duplicate topics and assign a single filtering value.
