Following are the features and related configuration to enable these features in question set editor:


The editor can be set into different type of mode, we can achieve this by changing the value of the Config#mode property. Following are types of mode: 1. read 2. edit 3. review - read The read mode is a feature within the editor that allows users to see the editor. But you cannot edit it. Here’s the configuration:

"config": {
   mode: 'read',

- edit All the fields will be enabled to edit for the collection creator. Here’s the configuration:

"config": {
   mode: 'edit',

- review It’s similar to read mode only. but here users can perform some actions such as publish, reject. Here’s the configuration:

"config": {  
    mode: 'review',

You define which fields of a form can be editable for a specific mode with limited editing rights, leaving the rest of the fields non-editable to them. - editableFields Its object for different types of mode based on which some fields get enabled. Here is the sample configuration for review mode:

"config": {  
    mode: 'review',
    editableFields: {
    "review": [

Note: In above case editableFields.review: ['instructions'] so only instruction field is enabled for reviewer while reviewing the questionset.

Media Upload Config

Media Config sets the max size limit for images to be uploaded in the question set editor and the type of images. Here is the configuration:

"config": {  
    assetConfig: {
        "image": {
            "size": 1,
            "sizeType": "MB",
            "accepted": "png, jpeg"

Organize TOC

The maximum number of levels in the questionset has to be defined using the maxDepth property. This has to be updated in the object metadata of the primary category definition under hierarchy. maxDepth defines the level of questionset i.e at which level question is to be linked. If maxDepth is set as 0, Create New button get enabled to question at root node.

Note: children at root node is to be defined which defines the type of question can be created at root node. Here is the default value to be used for children.

children: {
    Question: [
      'Multiple Choice Question',
      'Subjective Question'

he maxDepth is set as 1, we need to define hierarchy also.

Here is the default value of hierarchy we are using, you can change the name of level also

hierarchy: {
    "level1": {
        "name": "Section",
        "type": "Unit",
        "mimeType": "application/vnd.sunbird.questionset",
        "primaryCategory": "Practice Question Set",
        "iconClass": "fa fa-folder-o",
        "children": {
            "Question": [
                "Multiple Choice Question",
                "Subjective Question"

Note: If you add more depth you need to add more levels in hierarch
