Add Versioned Maps to Your Portal Sitemap

Your portal supports versioned content out of the box. To show multiple versions, you need to obtain map references to different versions of your documentation.

For this process, you will use different versions of the same map. For ease of content management, we recommend that each version of the document be located on a separate CCMS content branch. To learn more about branching and versioning, see Versioning Overview.

Note: Cross-branch linking is not the default option. Contact your Customer Success Manager to make sure this setting has been enabled on your Heretto CCMS instance.
  1. Open the sitemap connected to your portal.
  2. Right-click the sitemap element and append it with the sitesection element.

  4. Right-click the sitesection element and append it with the version element.
  5. Right-click the version element and append it with the topicmeta element.
  6. Right-click the topicmeta element and append it with the navtitle element.
  7. Edit the navtitle element to display the desired version number.
    1. Hover over the navtitle element and click the gear icon.
      On the right, the attributes pane appears.
    2. In the top-right corner of the attributes pane, click the pencil icon to edit the contents of the navtitle element.
    3. Edit the contents of the navtitle tag.
      <navtitle>1.0</navtitle>
      Note:

      By default, Heretto Deploy Portal will automatically add the “v” phrase before the version number. Therefore, you do not need to add it in the navtitle element.

    4. Click Save.
  8. Right-click the version element and select Append > From existing file.

    The Select File window appears. On the top of the screen, you should be able to see the breadcrumbs section with your current file path.

  9. Select a map that you want to tie with this version.
    1. If the map is in a separate branch, click the branch name at the beginning of the file path.

      Note:

      If the map version you want to add is in the same branch as your sitemap, you only need to drag and drop that map into the version element.

    2. Switch to the branch with the map version that you want to add.
    3. Navigate to the map and click Select.
  10. Repeat the process described in 4 for every version you want to add.

Go to your Heretto Deploy Portal and refresh it. Navigate to the newly created versioned section. You should now be able to switch between its different versions.
