Since WebHelp output must be published locally, on the same machine where the WebHelp process is running, to publish your files directly to a SharePoint library you need to map a network drive to connect to SharePoint and change your file extensions to .aspx, as described in the steps below.

Using Oxygen XML Editor/Author

To publish WebHelp Classic output on a SharePoint site and use a transformation scenario from within Oxygen XML Editor/Author, follow this procedure:
  1. Map a network drive to connect to your SharePoint library. For more information, see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2616712.
  2. Edit the WebHelp transformation scenario and open the Parameters tab.
    • For a DITA transformation, set the args.outext parameter to .aspx.
    • For a DocBook transformation, set the html.ext parameter to .aspx.
  3. Run the WebHelp transformation scenario to generate the output.

Using a Script Outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author

Important: Running WebHelp transformations from a script outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author requires an additional license and some additional setup:
To publish WebHelp Classic output on a SharePoint site and use a script outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author, follow this procedure:
  1. Map a network drive to connect to your SharePoint library. For more information, see: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2616712.
  2. Use the following parameter to change your file extensions to .aspx:
    • For DITA transformations, use the args.outext parameter in your transformation script and set its value to .aspx.
    • For DocBook transformations, use the html.ext parameter in your transformation script and set its value to .aspx.
  3. Execute the transformation script.
For example, a DITA script might look like this::
  • Windows:

    dita.bat -i c:\mySample.ditamap -f webhelp -Dargs.outext=.aspx

  • Mac OS X/ Linux:

    dita -i /mySample.ditamap -f webhelp -Dargs.outext=.aspx
