Bootstrap Element (Data)
The "bootstrap" Element
In a variety of situations, you will be able to specify individual things that should be automatically added to a container as picks. This process is called bootstrapping and has a diverse set of special rules that must be observed. Each bootstrapped thing is specified through the use of a "bootstrap" element. The complete list of attributes for this element is below.
thing Id – Specifies the unique id of the thing that is to be automatically added to the container. index (Optional) Integer – Specifies a unique index value for this bootstrap entry. Only global bootstraps that add things to all actors require this attribute and it can be omitted in all other situations. Default: "0".
WARNING! The index is used to uniquely identify this specific bootstrap within saved portfolios. Consequently, it must never be changed or re-used within differnt versions of the data files. If you eliminate a bootstrap entry, simply leave that index value unused, replacing the old "bootstrap" element with a comment explaining why the hole in numbering is left.
-Condition tests are not allowed for bootstraps on entities and rulesets
The following example demonstrates what a "autotag" element might look like. All default values are assumed for optional attributes.
<autotag group="TheGroup" tag="TheTag"/>
