Creating entity types

Entity types define the structure for data that will be stored in i2 Analyze. By creating entity types, you can classify your data.

To create an entity type:
  1. In the Schema Designer window, click Insert > New Entity Type.
    A new entity type is added to the navigation tree. The new entity type's configurable fields are displayed in the Entity type tab. The entity type is assigned a default name and an icon.
  2. Enter a name and description, and select an icon for your new entity type.
  3. Assign a suitable semantic type that sufficiently defines the entity type.
  4. Create property types for the entity type.
Your entity type is successfully configured, with your property and semantic type specifications.
