Digimind Intelligence will collect interesting and useful information thanks to the monitoring system you put in place. The next step is to store or validate this information into a project, so that it can be published or shared with other people. To find out how to validate information please follow this link.
DI.12 offers three types of validation rules:
- Manual validation: you decide if you want to store the information, you select the destination folder, you apply tags to the information as you validate
- Assisted validation: you decide if you want to store the information, the destination folder and some tags are preselected, you apply other tags to the information if you would like
- Automatic validation: all information from a monitoring will be stored, in a preselected folder, tags are automatically applied
The rule that your monitoring agent is working with depends on when it was created and the choices you have made.
- Projects created after the release Easy Set Up (after May 17th 2016): Any monitoring created inside a project will work with an assisted validation rule to this project. (See below for details on how to modify this).
- Projects created before Easy Set Up (before May 17th 2016): Prior to Easy Set Up the default setting was manual validation. Users could change this inside the agent settings.
Accessing Validation Rules - Monitoring attached to a project
If you have created a project after May 17th 2016, monitoring is attached to the project in which it was set up. Monitoring agents can also be imported to a project. If you have done this, you can access the validation rules from inside the project.
To access the validation rules for a monitoring, open the project and click on Advanced Setting and then on validation method.
Accessing Validation Rules - Monitoring not attached to a project
For monitoring agents created before May 17th 2016 and not yet imported into a specific project, the access to the validation rules is through the edit an agent page, in the advanced fields:
Then click on assisted or automatic to open the validation rules:
Viewing Validation Rules
On the validation rules page you will see:
The validation method at the top is either automatic or assisted. You can change the rule from assisted to automatic (or vice versa) by clicking.
On the left of the page you will see the rule or rules that have been associated with this monitoring (identifiable by the tick). In this case the rule is "sound systems".
On the right of the page you will see the destination folder or folders for this rule (identifiable by a tick). In this case the destination folder is "sound systems" in the project "sound systems".
The validation rules with pencils and crosses by the side are those that you can edit. You are able to edit all the validation rules on the platform if you are an administrator. If you are an animator or tracker on the platform you will be able to edit only the validation rules for agents and monitoring systems you have created yourself.
Editing Or Creating Validation Rules
To edit a rule, click on the pencil. To create a new rule, click on the cross at the top:
On the next page, you will see:
The name of the rule will display on the validation rules page.
The classification mode will apply the validation rule to either all the alerts, or only a certain set of alerts.
- For all alerts: all the alerts will be stored into the destination folder.
- For only alerts matching the selected folders' keywords: keywords applied to a folder or folders will act as a gateway to allow in only alerts that match the query. This can be very useful for automatic validation rules and / or if you would like to dispatch the alerts to more than one folder (see notes below).
The folders section allows you to specify the destination folder for this information.
Validation Rules and Folder Query
If you are working with automatic validation rules and / or validation rules that have more than one destination folder, the folder query may be helpful.
A query on a folder will allow only information that matches this query to be stored in this folder. Apply queries to folders will allow you to dispatch information from one monitoring agent to more than one folder in the same project.
You can either add a query to a folder at the same time you create the folder, or later by clicking on the folder in the project page, and then in the manage folder options, clicking on rename this folder / modify the query:
You can write your query in the space provided:
Helpful Hints: Folder Queries
For the query to work correctly, you need to respect uppercase, lowercase letters and special characters.
You may find it is simpler to create separate monitoring systems for each folder rather than setting up folder queries for multiple classification with one rule.
