    How to Author a Tree for a Thesaurus Namespace

    • Go to Tools > Attribute Types…
    • Select the desired Thesaurus Namespace from the Namespace Dropdown
    • From the Association Type tab, select New
    • In the Name field, enter “Parent Of”
    • Select the Apply button
    • With the Thesaurus Namespace in the Details Panel, right click the “Version: Working” field and select Add Root
    • Drag the intended Root Concept into the Add Namespace Root window

    At this stage, the Root Concept should now be in the Tree Panel under the designated namespace

    To expand the tree, create a “Parent Of” association between the Root Concept and the intended child concept. Continue to create “Parent Of” associations in a hierarchical manner to expand the tree further. 

    How to Author a Tree for an Ontylog Namespace
    • Go to Tools > Attribute Types…
    • Select the desired Ontylog Namespace from the Namespace Dropdown
    • Under the Namespaces tab, select the Kind tab
    • Select New
    • Enter a name for your Ontylog Kind and select Apply
    • With the Ontylog Namespace in the Details Panel, right click the “Version: Working” field and select Add Root
    • Drag the intended Root Concept into the Add Namespace Root window

    At this stage, the Root Concept should now be in the Tree Panel under the designated namespace

    To expand the tree, all concepts must be assigned an Kind and then the namespace must be classified.

    Kinds are assigned to concepts by designating Defining Concepts to all concepts in the Ontylog namespace.

    For example, say there is an Ontylog Namespace named Beverages:
    • There are 6 Concepts in Beverages:
    • Alcoholic
    • Non-Alcoholic
    • water
    • milk
    • beer
    • wine
    • There are 2 Kinds in the Beverages namespace:
    • Alcoholic
    • Non-Alcoholic

    To author a tree for this namespace:

    • Set the Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic concepts as Root Concepts
    • With the Alcoholic concept in the details panel and while in the Defined View (i.e. Ensure the button next to the Delete button says “Defined View”), right click the “Kind: No_Kind” field and select Set Kind
    • Set the Kind to Alcoholic
    • Repeat the same steps for the Non-Alcoholic concept

    At this stage, the tree should contain both the Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic concepts. To add the remaining concepts to the tree, you need to set the Defining Concepts for each of them.

    For instance, to add the water concept under the tree, you would right click the name of the concept from the details panel and select Add Defining Concept. Then you would drag the Non-Alcoholic concept into the Add Defining Concept Window. This will set the Kind of water to Non-Alcoholic. Only Root Concepts can have their Kinds set manually. All child concepts must be assigned a Defining Concept.

    If a new concept called chocolate milk were created, to place it under the milk concept, set its Defining Concept to milk. This will set the Kind of chocolate milk to Non-Alcoholic since milk’s defining concept was also Non-Alcoholic.

    After all concepts have been assigned a Kind, go to Tools > Classify. Select Classify. Any hierarchical organization errors will be caught in the classification process and the errors can be seen in the other tabs of the Classify window.
