Can you please tell me how to go about identifying “global objectives” from local objectives when parsing the imsmanifest.xml file?
An objective that has a map becomes a global objective. In the attached screenshot, you can see that the local objective has an identifier. When it has a map, it maps to a global objective with a separate identifier. The identifier in the map is the global objective. Global objectives aren't explicitly declared anywhere in the manifest, they are just implicitly created when a local objective says that it wants to read from or write to it.
