In DXA Java 1.4 in the page a list of

<c:forEach var="meta" items="${pageModel.meta.entrySet()}">
<meta name="${meta.key}" content="${meta.value}">

Is there in the CME a way to add a value to that list ?

Yes, these PageModel.meta values are derived from CM Page Metadata (and other things).

See the processPageMetadata implementation in PageBuilderImpl: https://github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-java/blob/master/dxa-framework/dxa-tridion-provider/src/main/java/com/sdl/webapp/tridion/mapping/PageBuilderImpl.java

  • Thanks Rick, for this I create a custom meta data schema that editors can fill in. What if I want to add it to all pages, should I do it in the views then ? Jun 21, 2016 at 7:53
  • Yes, indeed. If you have HTML meta values which are the same for all Pages (of a given type), you can hard-code those in the associated Page View(s). Jun 21, 2016 at 18:47
