SXA tokens for datasource queries

Just a cheat sheet for myself to have them here all in one place so that I bookmark this URL and don't waste time digging out all sorts of documentation in order to find the right one. Taken out from here and here.

Available tokens:

  • $compatibleThemes - path to all themes
  • $theme - currently used theme
  • $pageDesigns - root of page designs
  • $partialDesigns - root of partial designs
  • $currenttemplate - name of the current template
  • $tenant - path to the current tenant
  • $site - path to the current site
  • $home - path to the current site start item (Home)
  • $templates - path to the current sitetemplates
  • $siteMedia - path to Virtual Media folder located under site
  • $sharedSites - for multiroot fields, resovles shared site for current tenant.
Custom tokens can be defined by adding an additional processor to resolveTokens pipeline.


Some samples
Children of the current pagequery:.//*
Home item of the current sitequery:$home
Parent item of the current pagequery:..
Parent of the parent item of the current pagequery:../..
Every item under site home pagequery:$home//*
Every item under site home page with additional sorting appliedquery:$home//*[@@name='News']
All items of the Page template under the current itemquery:..//*[@@templatename='Page']
All items of the Page template under the Home item of the current site       query:$site/*[@@name='Home']//*[@@templatename='Page']
