Update your custom build targets for DITA-OT 3.x

If your IXIASOFT CCMS Output Generator does not already use DITA-OT 3.x, you can switch IXIASOFT CCMS Output Generator 6.8 to use 3.x by upgrading your conductor files.

Note: You are not required to upgrade to DITA-OT 3.x with IXIASOFT CCMS Output Generator 6.8. You can continue to use your existing DITA-OT version.

To generate outputs with DITA-OT 3.x, you must update your custom targets to follow the new format.

You do not need to make any changes to your custom output types (in conf\client\outputtypes.xml) or your custom preprocessors (in conf\client\preprocessors.xml).
  1. Copy your existing conductor-client.xml file from your existing CCMS Output Generator to theCCMS Output Generator 6.8 and rename it.

    For example, conductor-client_pre61.xml.

  2. In the 6.8 conductor-client.xml file, add new targets with the same names and parameters as your existing targets.

    It is probably easier to create these targets than to edit your pre-6.8 targets to use the 6.8 format. There is a sample target provided in the file to serve as a model.

  3. If you did not set DITA-OT 3.x as the default CCMS Output Generator in data/outgen-init.properties, ensure your 6.8 conductor-client.xml file references the correct DITA-OT 3.x version as the outgen.ot.version.
  4. Start the Ixiasoft Output Generator service.
