      "data": {
        "layout": [
          {
            "id": "accordion-group",
            "type": "AccordionGroup"
          }

    Add child elements

    Specify which components of type Accordion you want to group by adding their component ID’s to the children property as shown below. The Accordion components must be added to the same page. The order of the components in the group is given by the order of the component ID’s in children.

      ...
      {
        "data": {
          "layout": [
            {
              "id": "accordion-group",
