Altova MapForce 2022 Enterprise Edition

To install a taxonomy:


1.Run XBRL Taxonomy Manager.

2.Select the check box next to the taxonomies or taxonomy versions you want to install, and click Apply.


Alternatively, if you have downloaded a file with the .altova_taxonomies extension from the Altova website, double-click the .altova_taxonomies file to run it. XBRL Taxonomy Manager opens when you run the .altova_taxonomies file.


Note the following:


Installing or uninstalling a taxonomy from XBRL Taxonomy Manager takes effect for all user accounts on the same computer.

Installing or uninstalling a taxonomy from XBRL Taxonomy Manager takes effect in all Altova XBRL-enabled applications installed on the same computer.

If the current taxonomy has dependencies on other taxonomies, the dependent taxonomies are also installed (or uninstalled, as applicable).


Command line interface

To install a taxonomy, run:


TaxonomyManager.exe install FILTER...


Where FILTER means one of the following:


1.A taxonomy identifier in the format <name>-<version>, for example: eba-2.10, us-gaap-2020.0. To view all the available taxonomy identifiers and versions, run the list command.

2.An .altova_taxonomies file downloaded from the Altova website.


Installing taxonomies on demand

Whenever MapForce detects that certain XBRL taxonomies must be installed on your computer, you may be prompted to install taxonomies on demand. For example, a dialog box such as the one below may appear when you run an action that requires loading XBRL taxonomies:


If you choose to install the missing taxonomies, XBRL Taxonomy Manager performs the installation and updates its local cache directory to keep track of this information. You can always view all of the previously installed taxonomies by running the XBRL Taxonomy Manager from Tools | XBRL Taxonomy Manager.


If you select Ignore, MapForce will resolve URIs from their public origin instead of local files, which will likely result in poor performance or even errors.
