Move More to Lightning Knowledge—Communities Topics and Article Search Data (Beta)
Where: This change applies to Lightning Knowledge in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions with Service Cloud.
Who: Users with Admin permissions can run the migration tool. A Salesforce product manager must enable the Lightning Knowledge Migration Tool for you. For details, contact your Salesforce representative.
How: After some initial preparation, follow the prompts and let the migration tool do the heavy lifting. The Knowledge object is optimized for Lightning by using record types instead of article types, and files instead of file fields. After you change the data model, you can use either Lightning Experience or Salesforce Classic. After migration, an admin manually revises customizations to use the new Knowledge object.
