Create a referable_component_library map

IXIASOFT recommends that you organize your referable-content topics into a referable_component_library map.

A referable_component_library map is a map that includes the <data name="referable_component_library"/> element. For example, the following code shows a sample referable_component_library map:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE map PUBLIC "-//IXIA//DTD IXIA DITA Map//EN" "IxiaMap.dtd">
<map id="lar1399918386572" xml:lang="en-us">
    <title>ACME Referable Content Map</title>
    <data name="referable_component_library"/>
    <topicref href="lar1398347925155.xml" keys="lar1398347925155"/>
    <topicref href="lar1397591595428.xml" keys="lar1397591595428"/>
    <topicref href="lar1398347709526.xml" keys="lar1398347709526"/>
</map>			
Note: The DITA CMS provides a referable_component_library template that you can use to create your referable component library maps. But you can also use any other type of map, as long as you add the following element in the map:
<data name="referable_component_library"/>

To create a referable content map:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Press CTRL+ALT+M.
    • On the Document Creation toolbar, click the Create Map button ().
    • From the menu bar, select DITA CMS > Create Map.
    The Create Map dialog appears. The ID field displays the system-assigned ID.
  2. Enter a title in the Map Title field.
  3. In the Map template area, select referable_component_library.ditamap.
  4. Specify the other options as required and click Create.
  5. Add your referable-content topics to the map.
