We are having list of dictionary items where the Dictionary folder is a bucket, and the Dictionary entry is a bucketable item. Often, we are having Dictionary folder inside another Dictionary folder, hence when we are syncing the parent folder the dictionary item inside the nested folders are bucketed under the first level outer folder instead of its own immediate parent dictionary folder.

Is there any fix or work around available please?Below screenshots show the before and after bucketing tree structure. enter image description here

  • Do you have Dictionary under System or do you have it in your site content? And are you using SXA OOTB dictionary or do you have any folder for Dictionary? Aug 3, 2022 at 12:16
  • Can you please clarify the question with more detail and maybe some screen shots around what you are trying to achieve?

  • Can you try to select checkbox under Item buckets section on Item template that says "Lock child relationship" prior enabling bucket and syncing? This should keep items structured correctly.

To keep items structured in buckets. Before making item bucketable and syncing, select checkbox under Item template Item Buckets section called Lock child relationship enter image description here

Once this is done and synced, your bucket should be structured like: enter image description here
