Depending on the structure type displayed, different configurations can be used here, analogous to the viewer metadata. The configurations are placed in an element <template>. The name of the structure element is entered in the name attribute. A template with the name _DEFAULT is used if no special template is defined for the current structure type.

Each element <metadata> describes a metadata field to be displayed. The order of the listing corresponds to the order in which this metadata (if any) is displayed. The element has the following attributes:




Name of the Dublin Core field (title becomes <dc:title>). This is a mandatory attribute, and should contain a valid name according to Dublin Core specification.


Default value of the metadata. In the simplest case, a static character string can be entered here that is output directly (e.g. dc:format in the above example). The value can also be a string or URL defined in messages_*.properties or directly in the attribute and containing placeholders that are replaced by actual values from the metadata. For simple metadata from index fields, this attribute should contain a "{0}". In the special case #AUTO# certain fields (dc:identifier, dc:rights, dc:source, dc:fulltext) can be filled programmatically according to a fixed scheme.

In the special case #TOC#, the table of contents of the requested record is output as text in the field dc:description. Therefore the <restApiUrl /> must be configured correctly.

If values from index fields are to be used, the element <metadata> must contain at least one element <param>. These define the source of the actual values for this metadata type. The following attributes must be configured:




The type of the value describes the way whether and how the value is handled. Possible types are:

  • field- The value is taken over as it is.

  • translatedfield- The value is translated into the current language, if a translation exists.


The field in the Solr Index that contains the desired value.


Character string that is immediately before the value of the metadata (spaces are coded with _SPACE). This is translated automatically if a translation exists.


Character string that is to appear immediately after the value of the metadata (spaces are coded with _SPACE). This is translated automatically if a translation exists.


For delivered sub-elements (e.g. articles), the metadata value of the plant main element is automatically used if the sub-element does not have this metadata field. This can be prevented by activating this attribute. The default value is false.

The order of the <param> elements corresponds to the order in which the placeholders in the default value (if configured) are replaced.
