Upload a DITA-OT

If you’re building your own plugin or using the PDF Plugin Generator to generate a plugin, you’ll need to upload the DITA Open Toolkit version that your plugin is built on so you can use the plugin in easyDITA.
Important:If your custom plugin is built using the DITA-OT version 2.0+, you’ll need the corresponding DITA-OT version in easyDITA. Contact an easyDITA representative to upload and enable the DITA Open Toolkit 2.X on your server. Once enabled, you’ll be able to use the DITA-OT 2.X and your plugin in a publishing scenario.
  1. First, you need to download the DITA-OT version your plugin is built on. You can download your DITA-OT version from the DITA-OT website.
