Option to add other assets like PDF/word to set as a relationship for the topic in DITAMAP


Level 1

Documentation indicates that the relationship tables works with the topics/concepts/tasks, I am trying to check, if there is any option that we can use the relationship tables with the regular assests like pdf/word assets in the DAM along with other topics. 


My scenario is as below:

Topic 1 is having a relationship with Topic 4 and Topic5 and as well as can be linked to a DAM asset like PDF documents, once the AEM webiste is created, expecting the relationship nodes to be created for both Topic 4, 5 and assets linked in the relationship table. Is this possible?


Appreciate your help in advance!

Are these relationships setup using reltable in DITA? Or are they related as references as a result of xref, conref etc.?


In general, the related topics should be available to the AEM Sites output, unless its explicitly omiited by setting args.rellinks=none for AEM Sites output or the AEM Sites template is not equipped to show the related links.

Hi @DivrajSingh , The relationships are set using the reltable in DITAMAP. I only see that I can add other topics/concepts/tasks while setting it up, but do not see an option to link something apart from the DITA files.

I would like to check if there is any possibility that we can add assets or external links along with the DITA topics in the reltable (highlighted section in the screenshot)
