Knowledge Base

HDM Service supports the migration of Knowledge Base articles to and from Groove. However, there are quite a few peculiarities that have to be taken into consideration before the actual transfer.

When migrating to Groove:

  1. Groove supports only one category level. Thus, all categories migrate to the folder name instead.
    The structure will have the following outlook: Category name → Folder name.
  2. Groove doesn’t support base64 images. If your articles contain this kind of images, they will not be displayed. The page may freeze and some other elements might be missing. However, this can be easily prevented. Go through all of your articles containing some images before the migration, and change the format to any, except for base64.
  3. A similar problem may appear, when migrating the article with HTML code, featuring <img> tag. Instead of the image itself, its HTML code will be displayed. Once again, go through your KB articles and replace the tag.

When migrating from Groove:

Because all categories in Groove are referred to as folders, during the migration to another platform, they will connect to a default category, with the name Source Default Category. This can make the process of locating particular categories quite lengthy.
