Our developer docs and reference Content docs are open source and hosted on GitHub. We've integrated the editing experience via GitHub directly into our docs site to make it even easier to contribute and suggest improvements.
To fix small errors and omissions in existing documents we recommend editing the document directly via a pull request (PR). While you can create an issue to report the error, it is often faster and easier to simply edit the document with the suggested fix via a pull request.
For most pages you will see an
Edit this Pageoption at the bottom of the page.
Note: if the
Edit this pageoption is not available, it means the page is not open for public contribution. Feel free to still report an issue.
Edit this pagelink is clicked, a new window from GitHub will open up. The window will contain the page in markdown view with an option to edit the page. Click the
Pencilicon to start editing the page.
Note: If the pencil icon is grayed out, you need to log in to your GitHub account or if necessary create a new account.
Edit the page with your changes. Use the Preview changes tab to check the formatting of your changes.
Once editing is completed, scroll to the bottom of the page. Enter a title and description for your proposed change and click
After clicking on
Propose changes. You will be taken to a new page:
