we are adding a JSS rendering component in SXA site. We have added the below query in JSS component data source location.

query:$site/*[@@name='Data']/*[@@templatename='Content Blocks Folder']

It is working if we add direct path in datasource location.

we want to refer the data from the Data folder of the Site.

    I am not familiar with code but I think that SXA specific queries might not be resolved before value from the field is used by JSS. You can either do it by yourself if you will find a good place (use ITokenResolver service or run through resolveTokens pipeline), wait till someone will help you with that (if any1 had the same case and solved it) or report it to support. and ask for a hotfix.

Currently, JSS can coexist with SXA on the same Sitecore instance, as a separate site. JSS is not currently capable of acting as an SXA tenant or using SXA's experience editor extensions (i.e. drag and drop components, variants, partials, etc), or any of SXA's features.


  • will it won't work for SXA tokens as well?
