# Trouble configuring Author Mapping XML file

Posts: 3
in DTP

I'm having trouble configuring the Authorship for a project.

I've made an authorship mapping xml file and edited the .properties file as described here

My xml map contains definitions for many authors across multiple files.
I generate a report, but in the report it only lists a single author, defaulted to source control.

I am using a script to run cpptestcli passing in the relevant ,properties file to the -setting option

I am unsure if there's a certain order things need to appear in the .properties file, or if I am missing something that would prevent it from giving me the desired authorship. The relevant properties that I have enabled are

    scope.xmlmap.file=path\to\file\mapping.xml
authors.shared.path=path\to\file\parasoft_analysis\mapping.xml
scope.scontrol=true
scope.xmlmap=true
authors.ignore.case=true
authors.mappings.location=shared


Any help is appreciated,
Thanks

My mapping.xml file looks something like this, in case it's a problem with the mapping file itself.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE authorship>
<authorship>
<file author="Author 1" path="directory/**" />
<file author="Author 1" path="**/subdirectory/**" />
<file author="Author 2" path="**/subdirectory/**" />
<file author="Author 3" path="directory/**" />
</authorship>

Still having a lot of trouble with this.My reports are displaying a single author, being 'Unknown', and all violations are being attributed to them.
