ditaelements - Flattening AEM node structure


Level 1

While mapping ditaelements to AEM components, p nodes are not flattened, even though the flatten tag is there by default for topic/p in /libs/fmdita/config/elementmapping.xml. 


Screenshot 2022-07-01 at 4.35.35 PM.pngAccording to the documentation, the p nodes will be flattened, if we enable it in the configuration (


Did the below steps to enable the flattening.


1. Enabled "flattening.enabled"  in com.adobe.dxml.flattening.FlatteningConfigurationService

2. Regenerated AEM site


But still

  • the node structure is coming expanded 
  • the resourcetype still remains same and not changed to fmdita/components/flattened
  • flatten property is not created

@aryasankari1 : after making changes to elementmapping.xml - did you also edit/save the utils bundle or com.adobe.fmdita.config.ConfigManager configuration? (this is also called out in Installation and Configuration Guide)

As that step is necessary to clear the cache from earlier saved elementmapping.xml
