Schema development process
When you are creating a schema, you can go through a number of iterations to ensure that the schema satisfies the requirements of your organization and functions correctly. By developing your schema in test environments, you ensure that it fits the format of your investigation.
Ensuring that you create and include only components that are necessary to your investigation is important. You cannot delete unnecessary components from your schema after you deploy it to the Information Store.
After your schema is configured to the specifications of your data model, you can create one or more charting schemes. A charting scheme determines how items that are stored in i2 Analyze are mapped to your chart.
