Defining Pages in a Sitemap

A sitemap defines the layouts—pages—that your site or site template uses. This tutorial covers the configuration options that are available for pages in a sitemap.

You can specify a name for a page, title, friendly URL, whether it is hidden, and much more. The example below defines a default layout template and both public and private page sets to import into a site:

  "layoutTemplateId": "2_columns_ii",
  "privatePages": [
        "friendlyURL": "/private-page",
    		"name": "Private Page",
    		"title": "Private Page"
  "publicPages": [
        "friendlyURL": "/welcome-page",
        "nameMap": {
            "en_US": "Welcome",
            "fr_FR": "Bienvenue"
        "title": "Welcome"
        "friendlyURL": "/custom-layout-page",
        "name": "Custom Layout Page",
        "title": "Custom Layout Page",
        "layoutTemplateId": "2_columns_i"
        "friendlyURL": "/hidden-page",
        "name": "Hidden Page",
        "title": "Hidden Page",
        "hidden": "true"

You can create child pages by configuring the layouts element for a page configuration:

"friendlyURL": "/parent-page",
"layouts": [
        "friendlyURL": "/child-page-1",
        "name": "Child Page 1",
        "title": "Child Page 1"
        "friendlyURL": "/child-page-2",
        "name": "Child Page 2",
        "title": "Child Page 2"
"name": "Parent Page",
"title": "Parent Page"

These examples use some of the available page configuration attributes. The full list is shown below.

colorSchemeId: Specifies a different color scheme (by ID) than the default color scheme to use for the page.

columns: Specifies the column contents for the page.

friendlyURL: Sets the page’s friendly URL.

hidden: Sets whether the page is hidden.

layoutCss: Sets custom CSS for the page to load after the theme.

layoutPrototypeLinkEnabled: Sets whether the page inherits changes made to the page template (if the page has one).

layoutPrototypeName: Specifies the page template (by name) to use for the page. If this is defined, the page template’s UUID is retrieved using the name, and layoutPrototypeUuid is not required.

layoutPrototypeUuid: Specifies the page template (by UUID) to use for the page. If layoutPrototypeName is defined, this is not required.

layouts: Specifies child pages for a page set.

name: The page’s name.

nameMap: Passes a name object with multiple name key/value pairs. You can use this to pass translations for a page’s title, as shown in the example above.

privatePages: Specifies private pages.

publicPages: Specifies public pages.

themeId: Specifies a different theme (by ID) than the default theme bundled with the sitemap.json to use for the page.

title: The page’s title.

type: Sets the page type. The default value is portlet (empty page). Possible values are copy (copy of a page of this site), embedded, full_page_application, link_to_layout, node (page set), panel, portlet, and url (link to URL).

typeSettings: Specifies settings (using key/value pairs) for the page type.
