  • Publication number: 20200387485
    Abstract: A system for customizing product documentation. In one example, the system includes an electronic computing device including an electronic processor. The electronic processor is configured to receive, from a user device, log-on credentials, determine, based on the log-on credentials, an organization, and receive, from a database server, product documentation for a product. The electronic processor is also configured to receive, from the database server, modifications for the product documentation that are associated with the organization, apply the modifications to the product documentation to create modified product documentation, and send, to the user device, the modified product documentation.

  • Patent number: 9514099
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for a documentation system. Documentation topics for publishing in a node are received from a client. Embodiments of the disclosure determine whether the documentation topic has been assigned a topic identifier. Topic identifiers are assigned if the documentation topic has not been assigned a topic identifier and the documentation topic is assigned to at least one node in the documentation system. The documentation topics are stored in a data store and the topic identifiers are transmitted to the client. The topics are then published in at least one node of the documentation system.
