When you create or edit Articles/Categories you can choose which users will be able to see the content. There are three basic accessibility options: Public, Internal or Private
This is the default option for all Public knowledge bases. When a question or category is set to Public, anyone can access it. No login is required.
Internal questions or categories are only available to logged-in users, and they have a lock icon to flag that the content is not public.
This option is great to share private content with your team. If you want to turn your entire KB as internal, please take a look here.
The Private visibility also requires login. However, you can select specific users/groups who can access the content. This feature is good to share private articles with a specific group of users in your company, such as content for sales or design team. Be aware that, in order to avoid losing content, Super Administrators will always have access to private articles/categories, even if they are not in the allowed users list.
Now that you already know the difference between our three main accessibility options, let's understand how you can combine them
- Public categories can have any kind of subcategories/questions inside it (Public, Internal, or Private).
- Internal categories can have only internal and private categories/questions, but not public.
- Private categories can have only private categories/questions. They can have the same users/groups or less (but not more) than the parent category.
