Sitemap Configuration - Bloomreach Experience Manager - The Fast and Flexible Headless CMS

This article covers a Hippo CMS version 11. There's an updated version available that covers our most recent release.


Sitemap Configuration

After the request has been matched to a mount, the remaining request path will be matched against the sitemap, which defines the URL space of a site. A sitemap contains a composite tree structure of hst:sitemapitem nodes. For example

+ hst:sitemap                                            [hst:sitemap]
     + root                                              [hst:sitemapitem]
     |   - hst:componentconfigurationid = hst:pages/home
     |   - hst:relativecontentpath = common/home
     + about                                             [hst:sitemapitem]
         - hst:componentconfigurationid = hst:pages/textpage
         = hst:relativecontentpath = common/about

A matched sitemap item* contains a property hst:componentconfigurationid, which is a reference to the HMVC root, typically a child node below hst:pages. See Pages, Components, Abstractpages and Templates for more detail about this. A sitemap item also optionally has a hst:relativecontentpath, which is the relative content path below the root content the hst:site points to. See SiteMapItem Matching for a detailed explanation on the matching rules. 

* Note that only for default site pipeline processing, in which case the request processing is done according HMVC model, the matched sitemapitem requires a hst:componentconfigurationid. If the matched sitemapitem indicates non-default request processing through the property  hst:namedpipeline, then a sitemapitem typically does not have a hst:componentconfigurationid. A sitemapitem can also contain multiple component configuration ids, more about that can be read at Multiple Component configs per SitemapItem.
