Knowledge Management

The ASM Core Knowledge Bank is the repository for all the knowledge that is collected in the system.

Knowledge refers to useful and relevant units of information that have been accumulated through learning and experience. The ASM Core Knowledge Bank supports knowledge management by enabling Analysts to:

  • organize knowledge into types and sub-types

  • create knowledge entries, which can then be viewed by others

  • import Calls into the Knowledge Bank, so that they can be used as examples of workarounds and solutions

  • search the Knowledge Bank, within the limitations of their security roles. Knowledge entries can also be made available to Users, both on the main application and via the Self Service Portal

Knowledge entries are created and their content can be moderated for accuracy before they are published. They can be restricted to the main application, or made available to the Self Service Portal.

Access to knowledge articles and permissions to manage them and configure the knowledge bank are controlled via security roles and knowledge profiles.

Initially, the knowledge bank is configured using the following options:

Knowledge Bank Settings

to enable the Knowledge Bank for your system, configure the format for knowledge entries, define review settings for knowledge entries and define setting for knowledge entries cloned from calls

Knowledge Base Types

to rename base types used to define the nature of the knowledge entry in ASM Core

Knowledge Entry Types

to define your own 2nd-tier knowledge entry types in ASM Core

Knowledge Profiles

to create and update knowledge profiles. Knowledge profiles control content access for the SSP. To limit access to specific KB entries on the SSP, you would grant access to the profile on the SSP Security role.

Knowledge Ratings

to define and create knowledge entry ratings and scores

Knowledge Statuses

to define statuses that can be associated with knowledge entries, such as Draft, Published, or Reviewed

Once the knowledge bank has been configured, Analysts can then manage the entries in any of the following ways, depending on their security role permissions:

  • Create a knowledge entry

  • Moderate the entry to ensure it is accurate before it is published

  • Update the details

  • Review the knowledge entry

  • Delete the knowledge entry

Users and Analysts can then:

  • Search for knowledge entries

  • View the knowledge entry

  • Give feedback on knowledge entries
