This problem has been fixed. If you are able to upgrade, review the Fixed In or Intended Fix Version fields to determine whether any versions have a planned or permanent fix.

If you are unable to upgrade, please use the following workaround:

1) clone the KB Article Page widget

2) add the following line to the server script just below where t.sys_id is set: 
t.table = articleGR.getRecordClassName(); 

3) in the Body HTML template where the sp-attachment-manager directive is called, change 

This will require to reconfigure the KB article page to display the widget or to duplicate and make the changes there to preserve the out of box page.
