Notate changes made to KB articles

It would be incredibly useful for there to be a change log for KB article updates to know what has been modified/added/removed.

For example, Network Ports Used by Jamf Pro was modified yesterday and is a pretty important resource. I don't know know if a port was removed due to a security concern, a new port is required for new features is added, or merely a grammatical error was corrected.

This is a great idea and I'd like to pursue it. Please add thoughts about how to implement this in the comments below. If you know of other organizations or examples that are doing this well, please share and tell us what you like about them.

Thank you!

+1 for this. I had the same thought when I saw that article was updated. And for others, it would be nice to be able to jump directly to the new content if that's all you need (looking at you MySQL/InnoDB settings).

Maybe less notating changes, more a change/revision history that is publicly accessible. Using a CMS like Confluence or a wiki-formatted site for KB articles could help facilitate this.

+1 for this as well. Especially in the instances whereas we question Jamf Support on "what changed in this particular KB document", and not even they can speak to it.
