Map content IDs to F1 contextual help (MT4)

 

Content ID Mapping allows you to create links and to manage the articles they resolve to within MindTouch.
 

Feature

The Content ID Mapping provides flexibility for users implementing MindTouch Contextual Help to allow them to add generic URLs/URIs within their application/site and then manage the relationship for those links within MindTouch through the Content ID Manager. 

When to use this feature?

When deploying MindTouch Contextual Help, the default deployment is to use a hard coded link and our javascript embed to load the article.  When adding the links into your application or site, you want to decrease the need to have to update.
