How to Create Custom PDFs and EPUBs on the CA Common Services DocOps Platform

Blog Post created by Jim_Bauman Employee on Dec 28, 2016

The CA Common Services for z/OS - 14.1 DocOps Platform lets you create PDFs and EPUBs files that you can download to your computer.

Most of us are familiar with PDFs. EPUBs are books that you can read on electronic devices, such as tablets and smart phones, that you open and view using an e-reader application. The file content is expressed as an .epub file.

With the CA Common Services DopOps Platform, you can create and download PDFs and EPUBs of the entire DocOps Platform, a section (for example, Installing), or for one article (for example, Post Release 14.1 Enhancements).

When you create a PDF or an EPUB for a section, the content export process exports the article that you are viewing and all of its children articles.

To create custom PDFs and EPUBs, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to docops.ca.com.
  2. Open CA Common Services for z/OS - 14.1.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To create a PDF or an EPUB for the entire DocOps Platform, click the PDF or the EPUB link that is located on the upper right corner of the CA Common Services for z/OS - 14.1 Home page.
    • To create a PDF or an EPUB for a section or an article, browse to the section or article that you want to export and then click the PDF or EPUB link that is located on the upper right corner of the page.

After you click the PDF or EPUB link, the DocOps Platform exports the content to the file format that you want. Then your browser saves the file to the Downloads folder on your computer.

It's that simple!
