Create IDOL Users

Topics in this Section

You must store users in the IDOL server to use any of these IDOL server capabilities:
*
Agents. Users can store queries in the form of agents to always be up to date on the latest available information. Users can edit and retrain their agents.
*
Profiling. A profile is a set of agents that are trained using the documents the user is looking at, and return data that matches their interests. You can set up your application so that every time a user looks at a document, the profile decides whether this document is relevant to its agent training. It then either updates the training with the document content or creates a new profile agent for the user.
*
Collaboration. You can match users with common agents or similar profiles.
*
Alerting. When the IDOL server receives new content that matches user agents, the server immediately notifies the user by e-mail or a third-party system (for example by SMS or a pager).
*
Mailing. IDOL server matches the agents and profiles against its document content at regular intervals, and automatically notifies users of documents that match their agents and profiles by sending them an e-mail message.
*
Expertise. IDOL server accepts a natural language or Boolean search string and returns users who own matching agents or profiles. This process allows instant identification of experts in any subjects at hand.
You can create a user structure that is either flat (all users have equal roles and responsibilities in IDOL) or hierarchical (you assign roles to users, which can hierarchically relate to other roles).
