Assigning DITA Content

Prerequisites: Users must have permissions to assign assets and asset folders from others to themselves in the CMS Assets Manager. See Creating Groups for details to set permissions.

To gain editing permissions to DITA document assets, the system requires the operating user, defined in the configuration dialog, to have the document asset checked out and assigned to them.

Operating users with permissions can execute the Assign to me action to directly assign checked-out document assets from another user or group to themselves via the Oxygen Desktop Plugin.

The operating user can only use the Assign to me action on DITA content checked out and assigned other users or groups.

The system automatically assigns items to the operating user upon checkout. Operating users with the appropriate permissions can check out any checked-in item, no matter if the item is assigned to another user or group in the CMS. See Checking Out DITA Content for details.
To assign CMS DITA content via the Oxygen Desktop Plugin:
  1. Open the Oxygen XML Editor application.
  2. Navigate to a checked-out item assigned to another user or group within the Ingeniux CMS Browser tab's tree structure.
    A lock icon displays next to checked-in items in the Ingeniux CMS Browser tree. If you hover over a checked-in item, the tooltip text displays Checked out and assigned to [name-of-user-or-group].

    The system assigns the operating user to the item. An unlock icon displays next to the checked-out item in the Ingeniux CMS Browser tree.
