Collaborate on your knowledge base

QnA Maker allows multiple people to collaborate on a knowledge base. This feature is provided with the Azure Role-Based Access Control.

Perform the following steps to share your QnA Maker service with someone:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal, and go to your QnA Maker resource.

  2. Go to the Access Control (IAM) tab.

  3. Select Add.

  4. Select the Owner or the Contributor role. You cannot grant read-only access through Role-Based Access Control. Owner and Contributor roles have read-write access permissions to the QnA Maker service.

  5. Enter the user's email address and press Save.

When the person, you shared your QnA Maker service with, logs into the QnA Maker portal they can see all the knowledge bases in that service.

Remember, you cannot share a particular knowledge base in a QnA Maker service. If you want more granular access control, consider distributing your knowledge bases across different QnA Maker services.
