I am starting to use the Knowledge Base feature of Jira Service Desk and I'm running into a problem with the "Categories". I have created a couple and I added one page to the first category, and a few pages to the second category. When I look at the category edit page (where you can change the name and add articles), no articles appear. However, when I look at the "All articles" page I see the categories in the table.
The customer portal does NOT show the articles, so obviously there is some disconnect somewhere. My regular Service Desk users CAN see the articles in the portal when they search, but the categories show no articles when clicked in the portal. (In other words, it doesn't appear to be a permissions issue.)
I have tried deleting the categories, adding new categories, nothing seems to change.
So... I'm not sure what changed, but I finally came back to this and the articles are now in the correct categories.
I just tried to add more articles to the categories and I noticed that after refreshing the page the would appear, then refreshing again they would disappear. It looks as if the Atlassian servers are trying to replicate the category assignment across multiple servers and there is some delay for that to happen.
In any case, I think I can close this as a non-issue.
