Defining Topics Using a Query Tree

Use the Training tab and Query Tree option to create topics using a topic editor. For information about topics and topic design strategies, see the Verity Query Language and Topic Guide.

A basic workflow to train your category using this method involves the following steps:

1. Create your query tree in the topic editor.

2. Test the query.

3. Save changes.

Using this training method, you can perform the following actions to define a category:

Assign a topic to a category (see Assigning a Topic to a Category)


Add and delete topics


Save topics (see Saving a Topic)


Use a query as a topic


Test a topic (see Testing a Topic)


Add a link to share topic rules


Use query input or string modes


Create a subtaxonomy (see Creating a Subtaxonomy)
