I'm stuck with showing articles in categories on Service Management portal.
I have some articles created and published, I created a new category, I added two articles to the category and here comes the weird thing:
1. under the knowledge base menu, I can see the list of articles and those two have the category associated
2. if I access the category section, the category is declared as empty and the articles are not showing up in the portal
What's wrong with this? I already setup the knowledge base visibility to restricted in order to make it visible to portal users.
I'm on the free plan, is there any limitation to categories?
EDIT: an article finally appeared after several minutes, the latter is still not appearing. Is there any known issue on delays after doing this kind of action?
Hello Federico and welcome to the Community!
Glad an article showed up within your testing. There should be no issues or delays between linking knowledge.
For your category issues being left blank, I would be interested to see if the knowledge articles are still linked to a category.
Could you please re-check that there is knowledge linked to your categories?
To categorize a knowledge base article:
From your service project, go to Knowledge base.
Click + New category in the sidebar.
Enter a name for the category.
Enter a description for the category.
Click Add article.
Click + next to each article you want to add to the category.
Click Back to category. The articles you have added to the category are displayed in the category.
Let us know the results, please.
thank you for your quick reply.
Today I did again the steps that you mentioned and everything worked fine this time. It's still a mystery why they didn't immediately showed up inside the Knowledge base --> Categories --> "New Category" but indeed the article was linked to the category in Knowledge Base --> All articles.
Maybe a temporary issue, I will monitor if it will ever happen again.
For the moment, thank you for your assistance!
