Yes, just read the article: "As of March 21st, 2016"

Kushal,
 
I don’t believe customers can tell this information, however, I looked into it and I would say it was most likely published on December 7th, 2015 (or within a day or so).

Emails from Progress Alert and Notification Service:

There is another simple "solution" that will also tell who wrote the articles.

How do you tell that?

It's in the kbase table in ProKB.

Namely the fields: kbase.newby and kbase.modby ;-)

You can also see creation date (newdate) and modification date/time (moddate).

okay.  I never use the offline kbase.

In the case of article S000067370, the date info in ProKB is wrong.  It shows:

Create date: 09/06/2016

Modified date: 09/06/2016 16:23:07

In my offline ProKB , S000067370 it says:

Created: 08-Apr-2016

Modified: 08-Apr-2016

The code below shows some interesting results: ;-)

&scoped-define field newby /*modby*/
output to value("kbase.{&field}.txt").
for each kbase no-lock
  break by kbase.{&field}:
  accumulate "articles" (sub-count by kbase.{&field}).
  if last-of(kbase.{&field}) then
  put unformatted kbase.{&field} "~t" accum sub-count by kbase.{&field} "articles" skip.
end.  
output close.

Thank you all for the information.

Is there an Idea entered someplace that we can vote on to get this information displayed in the online KB?

There is no dedicated section in the Ideas area for KB feedback, but you could post this in the KB community group.  I think feedback like this is exactly why they launched that group.

Thanks

Ed
