To manage a Knowledge Base, you must perform several tasks by using the cell command-line interface (CLI). This section briefly describes these tasks; for more information about syntax and options available for the CLI commands, see Summary of CLI commands for BMC Impact Publishing Server.
To protect the format of the default Knowledge Base, back it up prior to making any modifications. An adequate backup includes all directories and files in the kb directory or the directory where the changes occur.
You can also use source-control programs, such as CVS or Subversion to keep track of changes to the KB. Source control allows you to revert to older versions of the KB and to examine changes.
