About this task

You can select the Knowledge check box and automatically submit a knowledge article when a problem is closed.

Procedure

  1. Select the Knowledge check box on the Problem form.
  2. Resolve and close the problem.

    Closing the problem triggers the business rule Problem Create Knowledge. By default, the business rule creates a knowledge article in the Draft workflow state, ready for a knowledge team member to review and publish. The problem Short description becomes the article Short description, and the problem Work notes become the article Text.

    If the knowledge submission workflow is enabled, the problem Work notes become a knowledge submission instead of an article. For more information, see Knowledge workflows.
