Profile a single topic differently in multiple places in a DITA map

Post by cfurlin » Mon Mar 18, 2019 6:16 pm

I have several topics that are similar in structure but with different phrases and I'd like to write a hybrid topic and use in multiple places in a DITAmap.

Here is an example element:

Code: Select all

<p>Setup a <ph platform="one">Platform One</ph><ph platform="two">Platform Two</ph> in Microsoft Azure.</p>
I have two PH tags with different platforms and I'd like to add this file in two different places in my map but have one file profiled to platform="one" and the other to platform="two". In the output each topic reference would filter to only using one of the phrases.

Is this even possible? I tried adding the profile condition to the topic reference for each but it still renders both.

I'm guessing my approach is wrong. Suggestions?

Hi Chris,

What you want can only be done using DITA 1.3 features.
You can either do that using DITA key scopes:

or using DITA 1.3 branch filtering:
