Add Variable Warehouse Maps to Deliverable Maps

Add a variable warehouse map to a deliverable map to enable variable reuse through keyword elements and keyref attributes.

Create a variable warehouse map and define variables. See Create a Variable Warehouse Map.

  3. In the Content Library, navigate to the variable warehouse map that you want to add to the deliverable map.
  4. Drag and drop the variable warehouse map from the Content Library into the Map Editor.
