Import a taxonomy from a TSV text file

The import taxonomy wizard lets you add one or more taxonomy files prepared outside DITA CMS to the repository.

The taxonomy must be specified in a TSV (tab-separated values) text file that reflects the structure of the taxonomy. For example:
Figure 1. Sample taxonomy structure (from the Google product taxonomy) Sample taxonomy

  4. Click Browse.
    The Open dialog appears.

    The selected TSV file appears in the Taxonomy Title.
