From Fluid Topics v3.4.55, DITA maps can be removed from the Fluid Topics portal through the following methods:

Perform the following steps to remove a DITA map from the Fluid Topics portal:
  1. Create or edit the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml control file:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <controlFile>
      <resources>
        <resource>
          <filePath>map_to_delete_with_no_ditaval.ditamap</filePath>
          <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
        </resource>
      </resources>
    </controlFile>
    Note: This method only works for DITA map with no DITAVAL instances.
  2. Compress the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml file in a ZIP archive.
  3. Upload the ZIP archive to Fluid Topics through the DITA source used to publish the DITA map.
    Note: There is no need to send the DITA map back.
Example
The following lines show how to add removal instructions for the Spare Part Catalogue DITA map, which has no DITAVAL, in the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<controlFile>
  <resources>
    <resource>
      <filePath>_spare_part_catalogue.ditamap</filePath>
      <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
    </resource>   
  </resources>
</controlFile>
Once published to Fluid Topics, the Spare Part Catalogue document is not available anymore in the portal.
