It is possible to remove an unstructured document from the Fluid Topics portal by using one of the following methods:

To remove an unstructured document with a control file, perform the following steps:
  1. Create or edit the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml control file:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <controlFile>
        <resources>
            <resource lang="en-US">
                <filePath>originid_of_the_document_to_delete</filePath>
                <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
            </resource>
        </resources>
    </controlFile>
    Attention: If the document is not in the archive and no originId was defined for the document, then the filePath must be used to identify the document.
  2. Compress the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml file in a ZIP archive.
  3. Upload the ZIP archive to Fluid Topics through the Unstructured Documents source used to publish the unstructured document.
    Note: There is no need to include the unstructured document files in the archive.
Example
The following lines show how to add removal instructions for the Time Machine Assembly PDF document, in the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<controlFile>
    <resources>
        <resource lang="en-US">
            <filePath>time_machine_assembly.pdf</filePath>
            <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
        </resource>
    </resources>
</controlFile>
Once published to Fluid Topics, the Time Machine Assembly PDF document is not available anymore in the portal.
