Manage Map Attachments in Fluid Topics

Fluid Topics
Technical Notes

From Fluid Topics v3.5.4, it is possible to add a map attachment to an Ftmap asynchronously by using a control file.

It is not necessary to upload content when using a control file to add a map attachment asynchronously.

  1. Create or edit the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml file according to your needs:
  2. Compress the FluidTopicsControlFile.xml file and the file(s) to attach in a ZIP archive.
  3. Upload the ZIP archive to Fluid Topics through the Ftml source used to publish the Ftmap.

When successfully uploading a control file (FluidTopicsControlFile.xml) through a source that is not of the Unstructured Documents type, the following information is provided in the History table of the Knowledge Hub interface: Published=0, Failed=0 and Rejected files=0. This is due to the fact that the control file is taken into account for the specified document but is not itself indexed, searchable or accessible in the Fluid Topics portal.
No failed or rejected file means that the upload was successful
More information about the upload can be consulted in the Dataflow interface of the Back Office.
