This script migrates a UserVoice KnowledgeBase, housing it as a category in a ZenDesk Help Center.

href Migration

It migrates the intra-knowledgebase hrefs in the articles as you'd expect.

img Migration

It doesn't touch the img src links, leaving those on UserVoice and elsewhere.


pip install uservoice
pip install requests


python transferknowledgebase.py {uv_subdomain} {uv_api_key} {uv_api_secret} {zd_subdomain} {zd_email} {zd_api_token} {zd_destination_category_name}

Updating the Script

Read up on the zendesk rest API and python examples to learn to edit the script.
