A Runtime Replacement Tag (RRT) has three components consisting of the three-character RRT identifier, the separator (::), and the RRT name. These are all contained between two tilde (~) markers.
The figure below provides you with an illustration of the RRT definition. Each part of the RRT is designed to create a standard field tag replacement that can be expanded to all components designed and developed within the component framework.
The table below provides details on each segment of the RRT:
|Markers||The tilde character (~) used to mark the beginning and the ending of each RRT. You cannot use the ~ character anywhere else within other parts of an RRT. Including the ~ as the value of a special field is not supported.|
|RRT ID||Three characters that identify the component owning the RRT and responsible for replacing the tags with the actual values.|
|Separators||Double colon characters (::) are used to separate the Component RRT ID from the actual Replacement Tag Name. The double colon is reserved and cannot be used anywhere else within other parts of an RRT. The following example would not be permitted as it repeats the :: within the Replacement Tag Name ~MYC::Invoice::Number~.|
|Replacement Tag Name||The Replacement Tag Name or RTN can be the name of the metadata collected from a content
source (such as a device) or a
metadata generated by the component (for example, an XML data field). The following
types of RTN are currently supported:
