# Poly Publishing Update
I inherited the publishing portion of this project from a colleague that left the company. It hadn't been figured out yet so I worked with Zoomin to implement and test their metadata plugin.
The plugin worked by converting metadata in the othermeta DITA element to selectable facets on the Zoomin documentation library.
Publishing is a cumbersome task due to the requirement to add metadata tags to topics each time you publish a document. This process wasn't only for new content but was required every time you publish any document.
