I have created a component and added it in a page and mapped all in my DXA. The problem I'm having is that when I call ContentProvider.GetPageModel(pageUrl, WebRequestContext.Localization, true) to get my page, I get the Region correctly and the entity with my component, but the fields that are ComponentLinks in Tridion only have the Id and the content it's not mapping. The other fields map correctly (for example, a text one, an image...).

My component is built with the schema Header, that has this fields: - logo (Multimedia Link of type Image) - help (Component Link of type HeaderHelp schema) - menu (Component Link of type HeaderMenu schema)

The HeaderHelp schema has: - lit_calls_from (text) - telephone_list (text, allowing multiple values)

The HeaderMenu schema has: - link_list (Embedded schema of type HeaderMenuItem, allowing multiple values)

The HeaderMenuItem schema has: - title (text) - link (text)

All the structure is modeled in the DXA and the classes used are registered.

I've even tried adding a text field to Header and it mapped ok. But something happens with component links as you can see. Any ideas? Thanks a lot, you for your help!

Looks like you have using vocab = "http://schema.org/", but I'm not sure did you create the specifying semantics on those schemas as mentioned in this document reference

Otherwise, you can switch to SDL_CORE or create your own custom vocabularies and prefix.

I hope it helps.

    Note that the (public) Semantic Entity annotations for schema.org don’t make sense in general; schema.org doesn’t define these semantic types. For CM mapping purposes, the SDL Core vocabulary should indeed be used (but note that explicit Semantic Entity annotations are not needed if your type names correspond to CM Schema root element names).

  • I thought about that we didn't do anything special about the vocabularies, we only have this is the vocabularies json ([{"Prefix":"tri","Vocab":"sdl.com/web/schemas/core"},{"Prefix":"s","Vocab":"schema.org"}]) and because the mapping worked for other fields I thought that shouldn't be a problem

I had the same problem recently. I can get the information of DXA base components (like images, mapped as MediaItem) but I couldn't take data from custom components mapping them as EntityModel. We doublechecked all SemanticProperties, regions, schema definitions... And we can't to get any component, the json we get from DXA has no information for that node.
