Creating a Process Flow from Scratch

If you are at the very beginning of creating an analytic process, or perhaps are new to analytics and would like an easy way to get started, this article will help get you going. In Data Manager, click the Process Flow header to get started. This will provide a workspace with multiple options for getting started. These are described below. Create a connection to a data source - select this option if you have not yet connected to an external data source within LityxIQ. For example...

Creating a Dataset Library

Dataset libraries can be used to organize the datasets you create into logical groups. Creating a dataset library is an easy task. Click Libraries from the Data Manager menu. 2) Click the Create New Library button and enter a name and optional description for the library. Then click OK. The new library will appear in the list of available libraries. 3) When selecting the library from the list of available dataset libraries, you will have access to other options for the lib...

Create and Utilize a Configuration Variable

Configuration Variables can be used as dynamic variables (sometimes thought of as macro variables) whose values can be used throughout multiple areas of LityxIQ. They allow you to configure parameters or inputs to a process that are easily changeable from one run to the next, so that you do not have to manually change the value in all places where it was used. They can also be used to track a process flow, or kickoff the execution of objects within a flow. There are three ways to create a Confi...
