Inheriting glossaries using variability in customs categories [message #1799594] Mon, 10 December 2018 18:13

For my project I want to create a set of glossaries, in different method plug-ins. My approach:

  • my goal is to inherit some glossary into others, in a tree structure
  • my project is structured in «layers», each layer is a method plugin
  • each method has a set of term definitions
  • each method has one custom category (glossary) with their method terms assigned by hand
  • then, I would like a new glossary listing its own terms plus the terms collected in a previous one
  • so I apply «extend» variability in the given glossary linking to the foundation old glossary
  • my configuration sets a website with multiple trees/methods, each one with their own glossary
  • finally I expect a published website with the new glossary listing all its adhoc assigned terms plus the «inherited» others, but I can't get this result.

As an example:


  • custom-category1

    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term

  • custom-category2

    • glossary2-term
    • glossary2-term
    • glossary2-term

expected published result:

  • Glossary1

    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term

  • Glossary2

    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term
    • glossary1-term
    • glossary2-term
    • glossary2-term
    • glossary2-term

Seems clear I'm misunderstanding the variability feature in some way or another.

Any tip for doing this? I mean: I strongly would not prefer to do all the term assignations by hand and missing some new term here and there and to keep separate glossary sources as they are collected in the original sources.

Thanks in advance.
