When exporting a custom module from the Development Console, does the custom knowledge base get saved with the exported AKM?

How to export custom knowledge base with custom modules.


Yes, when the custom Active Knowledge Module is saved, the custom knowledge base is saved as well. When a custom module is imported into the development console, the module information is stored in the database.


Before performing an upgrade of Security Manager, it is advised to back up all user created processing rule groups from within the development console. Exporting a custom module also allows the user to move them to another Security Manager Configuration group.
