Resource ID Element

The resource ID element enables you to assign unique IDs to topics so you can use them in context-sensitive help.

Tip: Context-sensitive Help is created by mapping the documentation IDs into applications.


  • Each resource ID element must be unique in a map
  • Assign meaningful IDs to make it easier to map them into applications
  • If you want to map a topic into multiple places in the application or multiple applications, you can add several unique resource ID elements to a topic
