Enrich and Clean - Fluid Topics - 3.5

Fluid Topics User Guide

Reference Guides

The Enrich and Clean interface allows users with the ADMIN or KHUB_ADMIN role to perform the following actions:

  • Generate new facets using existing metadata and taxonomies
  • Cleanse metadata
  • Remove duplicates
  • Reorganize the tagging scheme matching custom taxonomies
  • Create hierarchical facets

Selecting the Enrich and Clean tab in the Knowledge Hub section of the Administration menu displays the Enrich and Clean administration interface.

As its name suggests, the Enrich and Clean feature is used for two main types of operation, both focusing on establishing a neat order in the facets generated from document metadata:

Cleansing metadata

For example, there can be scenarios where different authors use different terms to refer to the same metadata value. In a large team, it can happen that authors refer to version 7.0 of a product as, for example:

  • v7.0
  • v7
  • 7.0.0

As facets are created based on the metadata extracted from the documents, it is important to unify the above values and remove the logical duplicates. As the preferred value is 7.0, a synonym dictionary is used to teach Fluid topics that:

7.0=(v7.0, v7, 7.0.0)

Enriching metadata

Fluid Topics offers you various options to further enhance your metadata. One example of metadata enrichment is establishing hierarchical order in your facet values. It is highly useful if there are multiple values for the same facet:

Only KHUB_ADMIN users can use the Enrich and Clean feature.

To fully use this feature, it is necessary to use the Back Office Vocabularies Application.

Selecting Administration > Knowledge Hub > Enrich and Clean displays the Enrich and Clean interface as follows:

  6. The checkbox in this column is used to set the newly generated metadata as a hierarchical facet or not.

  8. The "x" button is used to delete the metadata enrichment.

To enrich and clean facet values, Configure Metadata Enrich and Clean.
