Public articles¬†— The documents that are accessible or open/available to people at large/general public. These are not confidential. Every person is free to access it without permission of any kind. In context of a knowledge base, public articles are saved/presented under public categories.

Private articles — Contrary to the above, these are privileged and proprietary documents belonging to a particular user or group of users. This is the prerogative of the person to whom they belong to show/disclose or not to any other person. Unauthorized access request is denied to prevent the breach of confidentiality/privacy. In context of a knowledge base, private articles are saved/presented under private categories and access to such categories is provided via user groups.
