How to update webhelp efficiently

Post by catherine » Tue Mar 10, 2020 9:30 am

Hi,
Previously, when I updated one topic, I need to generate webhelp to get the new html page.
If there were only few pages being updated, I just upload the new html pages to our website server manually.

However, if I add new topics, and insert the topics to the map.
After I generate the webhelp, which files or folders were updated expect the new added topic pages.
I tried to upload the new generated folder "oxygen-webhelp", files "context-help-map.xml" "toc.xml" and all the topic pages.
But when I visit the website, the publication toc is not updated.

Instead of uploading all the generated webhelp to the server, which folders and files should I upload?
or , maybe my procedures to update the published webhelp is a little stupid, is there a smart way to update the webhelp efficiently?

Hi,

When you update your documentation and the WebHelp output is generated we recommend to deploy the entire output on the server (not just a part of if). This is the deployment procedure we recommended.
