Managing Knowledge Bases

In order to use Knowledge Center Server you need to create at least one knowledge base in the Knowledge Center Cluster application, using the Knowledge Center Plugin for Administrator. This section describes the structure and specific options you need in order to create an index for this knowledge base in Knowledge Center Server.

Selecting the Knowledge Center Cluster Application

Start

  1. Log in to Genesys Administrator and navigate to the Administration > Knowledge Center menu item.
  2. Using the Administrator Select Knowledge Cluster Button button, open the menu for Select Knowledge Cluster. Select the appropriate cluster from the drop-down and click the Ok button. A list of the knowledge bases that have been defined for this cluster will be displayed.
Selecting a Knowledge Cluster

End

Creating a Knowledge Base

Start

  1. Click the + button. A panel with the main knowledge base parameters will be displayed. Fill in the following fields:
    • ID—The ID should only contain numbers, lower-case Latin letters, and underscores, with a maximum length of 50 characters. The limitation to lower-case letters is because ElasticSearch is case-insensitive and will therefore render all names as lower-case.
    • Name—Maximum length is characters
    • Description—optional
    • Select the default knowledge base language.
    • Make the knowledge base public or private. (If the knowledge base is made public, it will be visible to all users, whether or not they are authorized.)
      Important
      For private knowledge bases you can specify whether the knowledge base should be available to all of your agents or only to the agents that have one of the specified skills. In the case where you have specified several skills for the knowledge base, the agent needs to have at least one of them to access the knowledge base. Skill level does not influence ability to access the knowledge base.
    • Make the knowledge base active or inactive. If you un-check Knowledge Base is active neither your customers nor your agents will be able to search for information in that knowledge base. Authors, agents with the privilege Knowledge.Author and administrators with the privilege Knowledge.Admin, can still use the base to prepare content stored in it.
    • If you mark the knowledge base as public it will be accessible to both your agents and customers. A knowledge base that is not marked public will be treated as a private one and will only be accessible by your agents.
    • Specifying Access To Your Knowledge Base
    • You can make your private knowledge bases (when Knowledge base is public is not check-marked) available to only a subset of your agents by selecting Skill-based access to knowledge base. If you choose to make the knowledge base accessible to an agent with specific skills, you will need to select the skills that will grant an agent access to the knowledge base.
    • Making a Knowledge Base Accessible by Skill
  2. Click Save. The knowledge base will be created.

End
