Create Named Taxonomies

You can take advantage of the hierarchical nature of IDOL categorization to manually create and store named taxonomies in the IDOL Category component. You can then use those taxonomies to investigate searches or suggestions.

If you set up a hierarchy of categories using the CategoryCreate or CategoryImportFromXML actions, you can then run CategorySetDetails for the topmost category with TaxonomyRoot set to True. That category becomes the root of the new taxonomy and its name is the new taxonomy name.

You can also generate a named taxonomy automatically by running the TaxonomyGenerate action and setting TaxonomyRoot to True.

You can subsequently use the taxonomy name as a parameter in actions such as CategoryFind and CategorySuggestFromDocument, to restrict the scope of the action results.
