An asynchronous control file exists independently from the content in a separate archive, as opposed to a synchronous control file that exists alongside content in the same archive.

It is possible to use an asynchronous control file to manage content as follows:

  1. Create a control file, or edit an existing one.
  2. Decide whether to target a document by its <originId> or its original <filePath>.
  3. See Use cases and examples for step-by-step instructions depending on the context.
  • Setting an <originId> is incompatible with setting an <instance> attribute.
  • If the original ditamap has one or more DITAVAL files, it is necessary to target the DITAVAL's filePath in an <instance> attribute.
