Clearing DITA Preview Cache


Prerequisites:

At least one map scope entry must have an existing preview cache in the Select DITA Preview Generation Scope dialog.

Tip

If a checkmark displays in the Pre-Rendered column, then the DITA map entry has an existing up-to-date preview cache.


Users can clear the existing preview cache from DITA map scope options. When users generate a new preview after deleting the cache, the system automatically runs a fresh DITA preview transformation process.

If the Pre-Rendered column displays a checkbox in the Select DITA Preview Generation Scope dialog, then the map scope has an existing preview cache.

Note
See Preview Cache for details about cached DITA previews.

To clear the DITA preview cache:

  1. Navigate to Assets > Assets Tree.
  2. Select a DITA map or topic in the Assets Tree.

    The DITA content displays in the main Assets pane.

  3. Choose one of the following steps.
    • Select the DITA Preview tab.

    • Select the XML tab.

    The Select DITA Preview Generation Scope dialog displays.

  4. Select Clear Preview Cache.
    Warning
    When you clear the preview cache, the system permanently deletes all cached previews associated with the DITA content.
  5. Confirm the preview cache deletion in the Clearing Preview Cache dialog.

    The system permanently deletes all cached DITA previews.
