Export content from the DITA CMS
You can export content from the DITA CMS to another location to, for example, send your DITA source to a customer or external user, or to build output using a standalone DITA Open Toolkit as a troubleshooting measure.
Locate the map, topic, or image you want to export.
When you export a map, the export includes all the map's references: sub-maps, topics, images, and topics referenced via xref, conref, keyref, etc. Likewise, when you export a topic, the export includes all of the topic's references.
- Right-click the object you're exporting and select Generate Output.
In the Output Format drop-down, select the
Export output type.
If this option is not available, ask your CMS Administrator to check the system configuration to ensure that you are assigned to a role that has access to Export and that the output type is enabled.
Select other options as appropriate and click
It is not currently possible to apply a ditaval to exported content. The Export process simply gathers the required content from the Content Store and returns it to you. The DITA Open Toolkit is not involved in the Export and therefore there is no opportunity to perform any transformation on the content.
- Select the location to save the zip file of exported content.
