Information in this document applies to any platform.


When and how are articles and attachments created on the resources directory?

How are the paths created from the config parameters for attachments?

Can I change the attachment path in IM articles?

If the attachments paths refer to "/staging" in IM for both published and unpublished articles can I change this path to "/live" for published articles, where it is configured in IM?

The content xml files are created from the contentdata xml data, the contentmetadata xml data and the various other objects that are linked to the article - categories, views, usergroups etc. These files are internal files used for crawling the articles. The contentdata xml database field holds the article content for each version of an article and maps to the contenttext recordid. The first tag should be the channel and then each attribute for the article that has data in it should be there. There is one copy of contentdata.xml for each article and if there are metadata attributes then there is also a record in the contentmetadata table for each contentid.

The data in the database is not an API interface. This data is not intended to be used by the customer and should never be updated without the directory of engineering.
