# Package the KO
A Knowledge Object can be packaged into a zip file for deployment and distribution. Details can be found in KGrid Common Object Package specifications (opens new window)
# File Name for the ZIP File
The resulting ZIP file containing the KO is named based on the KO's ARK ID.
# Using KGrid CLI
KGrid CLI provides a command to help the packaging process.
To package the KO created in the previous section, run
kgrid package ark:/<naan>/<name>
Details for the command can be found in KGRID-CLI Documentation (opens new window)
You can also use
kgrid pacakge-all to package all KOs in the same directory. See the section of kgrid package-all (opens new window)
# Next step
Now that the KO has been properly packaged, it can be deployed to a KGrid activator or deposited to a KGrid Library.
