Reference topic type

Reference information should be in an easily-scannable format, like a table or list. It’s similar to a dictionary or encyclopedia entry.


Reference topics should be in this format:

# Title (a noun, like "Pipeline settings" or "Administrator options")

Introductory sentence.

| Setting | Description |
| **Name** | Descriptive sentence about the setting. |

Reference topic titles

Reference topic titles are usually nouns.

Avoid these topic titles:

  • Important notes. Instead, incorporate this information closer to where it belongs. For example, this information might be a prerequisite for a task, or information about a concept.
  • Limitations. Instead, move the content near other similar information. If you must, you can use the title Known issues.
