Modifying knowledge sources

If registration fails or you want to modify registration settings that are available for modification, for example, the list of file extensions, you can run the Registration Wizard and make the appropriate modifications. Modify functionality is enabled for registered knowledge sources only with the following source statuses: Ready, Failed, Update Failed, and Sync Failed. For more information, see Viewing registration and indexing statuses.

After you click Modify, the Registration Wizard opens and displays the registration data that was previously entered. BMC Knowledge Management performs a rollback process before the re-registration of a failed source begins.

Clicking Finish in the Registration Wizard resets the status to In Progress. If an error occurs during the rollback process, the status is reset to Failed, and the modification process can begin again.


Knowledge sources cannot be simultaneously updated by different users.

Run the following procedure to modify a knowledge source.
