Viewing a knowledge article's history
BMC Knowledge Management records the lifecycle history of articles. The recorded data is used by the reporting component to create historical and statistical reports. Whenever a change is detected during the article's lifecycle, a record is written to the article history form.
Article history is written for the following events:
- Article creation
- Status change
- Assignment change
For the status and assignee change events, an appropriate history record is created in addition to the Save event record. For each history record, the following information is shown:
- Changed By
For change events, the From and To values of the changed information are also shown.
