Content Access Tab

The Content Access tab on the Self Service Portal Role window lists all the knowledge profiles created for your ASM System.

Knowledge Profiles are a pivotal feature in Knowledge Management systems, serving as a mechanism to categorize and control access to knowledge articles based on the audience's role or group. They act as filters that ensure users see only the content that is relevant and permitted for their role, significantly enhancing the efficiency of knowledge delivery and compliance with security policies.

This granular approach to access control supports tailored information delivery, directly impacting the effectiveness of the Self Service Portal's Matching Knowledge, Knowledge Search, Ask a Question, and Your Questions portal pages.
