Assign IDs to Topic Elements

Assigning unique IDs is necessary to map topic elements into applications or websites.

Mapping a topic element, for example a phrase element, into an application is useful if you want to display your content in a field or another application interface element.
Important: You can assign only one ID to a topic element.
  1. Open a topic and place your cursor in the element you want to create an unique ID for.
  2. Click the Attributes tab.

  3. In the id field enter a unique ID.
    Tip: We recommend assigning an ID name related to the element so it's easy to identify later.
    Set the ID for a short description element as sample_id
