Document rendering involves extracting all raw revision documents from Deckhand’s database, retrieving encrypted information from Barbican, and applying substitution, layering and replacement algorithms on the data.
The following algorithms are involved during the rendering process:
Substitution provides an “open” data sharing model in which any source document can be used to substitute data into any destination document.
- Sharing of data between specific documents no matter their
- Data sharing using pattern matching.
- Fine-grained sharing of specific sections of data.
Layering provides a “restricted” data inheritance model intended to help reduce duplication in configuration.
- Sharing of data between documents with the same
- Deep merging of objects and lists.
- Layer order with multiple layers, resulting in a larger hierarchy of documents.
- Source document for data sharing can be identified via labels, allowing for different documents to be used as the source for sharing, depending on Parent Selection.
