    Here is the January list of New & Updated Gen Knowledge Base Articles (January 1 - 31, 2024, US EST)
    The full list of KB articles can be found on the Gen Product page: 
    https://support.broadcom.com/group/ecx/productdetails?productName=Gen
    Scroll down to "Knowledge Base Articles" and use "Browse All". Change the default "Sort By Relevance" to "Sort By Updated Date". Also at the bottom of the page, you can increase the default value of 10 for "Results per page".
    Another thing to note is there is now a "facet" name "Gen" which covers all 4 Gen product names: Gen, Gen - Host Encyclopedia, Gen - Run Time Distributed, Gen - Workstation Toolset.
    When the above article search results are initially displayed the Product is filtered on the facet Gen but only with the product name Gen i.e.

    Use X on the first "Gen" (facet name) to clear the Product filter and then from left-hand Product list select Gen (facet name):


    That results in the following new Product filter which shows all articles that contain any of the 4 Gen product names:

    Just to be clear. You cannot yet subscribe to a KB article page that you find on Google etc i.e. a page with this syntax: https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=article_ID
    The Subscribe button won't be visible on that page.
    If you find the article via Google first you can then get the article ID and subscribe to it via the Support Portal per previous post.
