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

Perform the following steps to remove instances of 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_multi_ditavals.ditamap</filePath>
          <instances>
            <instance>
              <filePath>version1.ditaval</filePath>
            </instance>
            <instance>
              <filePath>version2.ditaval</filePath>
            </instance>
          </instances>
          <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
        </resource>
      </resources>
    </controlFile>
  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 nor the DITAVALs back.
Example
The following lines show how to remove the Novice and Expert instances of the Time Machine User Guide DITA map, in the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<controlFile>
  <resources>   
    <resource>
      <filePath>_time_machine_user_guide.ditamap</filePath>
      <instances>
        <instance>
          <filePath>Novice.ditaval</filePath>
        </instance>
        <instance>
          <filePath>Expert.ditaval</filePath>
        </instance>
      </instances>      
      <publishStatus>deleted</publishStatus>
    </resource>
  </resources>
</controlFile>
Once published to Fluid Topics, the Novice and Expert instances of the Time Machine User Guide map are not available anymore in the portal.
