How does the Zendesk Help Center Articles Duplicator work?

This integration automatically duplicates Zendesk Help Center Articles from one main brand to multiple sub-brands. It also updates edited articles. This is a one way synchronization, so the main brand is leading. We sync every 30 minutes.

Fields that synced are:

  • Title
  • Body
  • Labels
  • Attachments
  • Open for comments
  • Promote article


  • This connector uses 1 main brand as course Help Center, the connector is a one way synchronization.
  • Categories and Sections should be pre-defined in all sub-brands before installing this connector.
  • We only sync articles with a label. Label mapping is defined in the connector.
  • You need to install one connector per brand, so when you have multiple brands, repeat this installation.
