Adding an Edit Link to Launch Oxygen XML Web Author

You can embed Edit links in the DITA WebHelp Responsive output that will automatically launch a particular document in Oxygen XML Web Author. A reviewer can then simply click the link and they will be redirected to the Oxygen XML Web Author editing page with that particular file open and editable.

To embed an Edit link in the DITA Map WebHelp Responsive output, follow these steps:

  1. Edit a DITA Map WebHelp Responsive transformation scenario and open the Parameters tab.
  2. Set values for the following parameters:
    • editlink.remote.ditamap.url - The URL of the DITA Map suitable for opening in Oxygen XML Web Author.
    • editlink.web.author.url - The URL of the Oxygen XML Web Author installation.
  3. Run the transformation scenario.

Result: In the WebHelp output, all topics will have an Edit link to the right side of the title and clicking the link will launch that particular document in Oxygen XML Web Author.
