This section describes operations that apply to the general aspects of models.
Click New on the menu on the left on the Models Management page. A window will open:
Set a name for the new model. Note that you cannot use the same name for different models.
Here you can decide whether you want to create from scratch or create from an existing model.
In the New Model window, select first Create from scratch and click Create model.
In the New Model window, select Create from an existing model.
Select an existing model from the Create from drop-down menu. You can select Kiuwan default models or any model from your own account.
Select the model version to copy in the Model version drop-down menu. You can create new models from these versions:
Select which of the languages present in the selected model version you want to copy in the new model. All configuration and rules for the specified languages will be copied in the new model.
Finally, click Create model.
Typically, if our software will be developed by third parties, at some point, "we freeze" our model in order to provide it to them, so they can study and apply it. The action of publishing a model is made using the Publish button on the top right of the screen.
Clicking on the button will open the publish window.
The window contains:
|Publication tag||A literal, or "tag", to facilitate the configuration management tasks and versioning of project artifacts.|
The automatically generated weights for the new languages added (if exists), with the possibility to change the value.
|Mandatory rules||The list of mandatory rules that will be automatically added to the model (if necessary)|
The list of related rules that you should check before publishing (incompatibilities, generalizations, and deprecations).
The list of mandatory metrics that will be automatically added to the model (if necessary).
Once the model is published, these actions are available:
Click Change publication tag to edit the version tag of the published model.
Click Remove this version to delete the selected model.
Click Remove versions to remove one or more model versions that are never used in an analysis or an application.
This option is not available for Default model.
Click Edit model to edit the model name and description. Click Save to save the edits and close the window.
Depending on whether you have used the model or not, two different results will appear after clicking Remove model.
If the model is never used in any analysis or applications, the following window will appear: Click Ok to remove the model completely.
Select Set as default model to set the selected model to default. (An asterisk will appear next to the model name on the left).
Open the hamburger menu next to the Summary title. Select PDF and a report is generated and downloaded automatically in .pdf format.
Open the hamburger menu next to the Summary title to compare the selected model with another model and/or version. Read more details about it here: Comparing Models.
A model is versioned each time it is published. Thus, we have two types of versions related to the publish state of the model:
All versions of a quality model can be accessed through the drop down box in the Models Manager toolbar:
