Configuration Routes

What are Configuration Routes?

Configuration Routes allow for the use of a consistent identifier for API document processing.

In previous versions of Semantria, users were required to change the call made to the API if they wished to change the configuration documents were being sent to. With configuration routes, that no longer has to happen. Users can now add configurations to a route to allow for the swapping of configurations or routing to different languages.

The use of Configuration Routes is not mandatory. If using the Semantria API, you can specify a particular configuration's ID; if using Excel or SSV, you can specify the configuration name when processing. However, we recommend creating and using configuration routes for simplicity of configuration management.

Quick Facts

  • Configuration routes can include 1 configuration per language
  • Configurations can be in more than one configuration route
  • Configuration routes are group specific, that is a route in a Semantria user group can only include configurations from within the same group

Example Use Cases

Promote to Production

With Configuration Routes, Semantria users can promote configurations to production without having to make any code changes. A simple change to the configuration route can swap out an older configuration for a newer, updated version.

Multiple Languages

A Configuration Route can contain 1 configuration from each language. Previously users had to specify a specific configuration per language, now users are able to place different languages into a route, and all they need to specify when sending content is the route and a language code. The route will then send the content to the configuration that matched the language specified.

Creating a Configuration Route

In SSV, under Menu is the new option for Configuration Routes.

Managing Configuration Routes

Once an account has configuration routes they are listed on the left hand side of the configuration route page. Here they can be expanded or collapsed to show the configurations within them.

The Configuration Route page

Clicking on a configuration within a rout shows the information about that configuration. Clicking on a feature (entities, sentiment, etc.) takes you to the configuration management page for that item in that configuration.

Edit an existing route

To edit an existing route hover over the name of the route and click on the pencil icon. This will open the same editor as the creating a configuration route and here configurations can be swapped out as needed.
