Referencing Personalization content

The "AttributeResource" tag is used as a placeholder to display attributes from a content spot or rule within a Personalization element design. It cannot be used in a presentation template or other element types.

<AttributeResource attributeName="ibmcm: " format=" " separator=" " start=" " end=" " />


Opens an element tag.

"ibmcm: "

This is the name of the attribute you would like to display from a content spot or Personalization rule. When selecting a content spot or Personalization rule in a Personalization element form, the list of attributes for each content spot or Personalization rule is listed in the right-hand view.
The attribute must always be prefixed by "ibmcm:
The following attribute names can be used:
  • ibmcm:title
  • ibmcm:description
  • ibmcm:modifiedDate
  • ibmcm:expirationDate
  • ibmcm:effectiveDate
  • ibmcm:authors
  • ibmcm:categories
  • ibmcm:keywords
  • ibmcm:owners
  • ibmcm:wcmId
format=" "
When referencing number or date elements:
In this case, the format is used to specify the display format of dates and numbers. The following formats can be defined when displaying dates:
  • format="DATE_SHORT"
  • format="DATE_MEDIUM"
  • format="DATE_LONG"
  • format="DATE_FULL"
  • format="DATE_TIME_SHORT"
  • format="DATE_TIME_MEDIUM"
  • format="DATE_TIME_LONG"
  • format="DATE_TIME_FULL"
  • format="TIME_SHORT"
  • format="TIME_MEDIUM"
  • format="TIME_LONG"
  • format="TIME_FULL"
  • format="relative" (The relative date will be displayed as either "today", "yesterday" or the number of days ago.)
You can also set user-defined formats for both dates and numbers.
When referencing user details:
When formatting user details, the format parameter is used to define which LDAP parameter to use when displaying user details. For example:
  • format="cn" is used to display the common name.
  • format="dn" is used to display the distinguished name.
Maximum character length:
You can also specify a maximum number of characters to display by using this format:
  • format="length:number_of_characters"
For example, to display a maximum of ten characters you would specify the following parameter:
  • format="length:10"
separator=" " Used to separate each result returned by the personalization rule. For example, separator=", "
start=" "

end=" "

The start and end attributes are used to wrap the data returned by a tag within other tags, such as HTML. These attributes are not mandatory.
/> This closes a tag.
Note: Referencing Web content components retrieved by a Personalization rule or content spot.
To display the results of a Personalization rule that searches for components, you must use a Component tag with a context of "autofill". For example:
  • <Component context="autofill" />
