Add result sets and mappings

This topic explains how to add result sets and various types of mappings to a frame.

Add a result set

You add a result set to a frame to define what assets you can use in the frame.

To add a result set to a frame:

  1. In the Dynamic frame dialog, on the Contents tab, click Add result set.

  2. In the Result set drop-down list, click one of the following entity types: Saved search, Saved selection, Collection, Asset, or Fragment.

    Note

    If you choose Asset, you can select up to five assets. For a larger selection pool, choose Saved search, Saved selection, or Collection.

  3. Click select.

  4. In the Select result set dialog, select the entities you want to link to the frame.

  5. Click Select.

  6. In the Dynamic frame dialog, to make the result set appear depending on the value of a variable, click Add condition and then specify the two fields of the If condition. You can add as many conditions as you want.

  7. Click Save.

Add a mapping

You add a mapping to a frame to automatically fill the frame variables with the metadata from the selected assets.

To add a mapping:

  1. In the Dynamic frame dialog, on the Contents tab, click Add result set.

  2. In the Dynamic frame dialog, on the Mappings tab, click Add mapping.

  3. In the Source relation, Store property, and In Template value drop-down lists, specify values. The entities in the Source relation drop-down list are related to the selected assets. If this field is empty, metadata from the asset itself fills the template value.

  4. Click Save.

Use variable mappings to store entity properties in a variable.

To add a variable mapping:

  1. On the Triggers tab, click plus sign Trigger.

  2. In the Trigger dialog, in the Source relation drop-down list, click the source entity you want to use.

  3. In the Variable mappings dialog, click Add mapping.

  4. In the Store property drop-down list, click the property you want to store in the template variable.

  5. In the in template variable drop-down list, click the template variable that stores the property value.

  6. Click Save.

Add a frame mapping

You add a mapping to a frame to automatically fill the frame variables with an asset related to an entity from the selected source relation.

To add a frame mapping:

  1. On the Triggers tab, click plus sign Trigger.

  2. In the Trigger dialog, in the Source relation drop-down list, click the source entity you want to use.

  3. In the Frame mappings dialog, click Add mapping.

  4. In the If ChiliType is drop-down list, click the type the asset must have in order to be stored in the frame.

  5. In the store in frame drop-down list, click the frame that stores the asset.
