Critical Difference between SWEB and SSV

There are no longer separate Save and Publish actions in SSV as there were in SWEB

In SSV: Save means Publish

All changes saved in SSV are published to configurations immediately and will affect results across the account

Configuration List

The SWEB functionality in SSV is under the Configurations tab in the Menu bar. Open this tab for the new configuration management UI.

Filter the configurations list by those used in an SSV project, configuration route, or even deleted configurations.

Sentiment

The configuration's Sentiment tab lists all custom sentiment phrases for that configuration. The number in parenthesis next to "Sentiment" is the number of custom items in the configuration.

Phrases appear on the left with their sentiment score. Click on a sentiment phrase to bring up the definition in the editor on the right. Sentiment can be a simple single word, as seen in the unsaved "cold" example below, or a complex query definition. For help with sentiment syntax, click on "Syntax Help."

Queries - New functionality

Query definitions may now include comments and newlines. All comments are stripped before processing and do not impact query results.

Comments can look like the following:
// Starting a comment with "// " makes the whole line a comment
/* Whereas this is a fully contained comment */

Entities

Entities have long allowed query syntax in their definition. The new UI assists with easier query definitions of entities.
The entity type now appears at the top of the editor, and the entity's name is the normalized form.

🚧

Query defined entities still need to have a preceding + in the definition

The taxonomy structure appears on the left, and nodes may be expanded or collapsed. On the right-hand side, click and drag items to the node on the left that they should appear under.

Concept Topics

Also known as Categories

Concepts appear on the left and the concept definition on the right. The Boost value is adjusted at the top.

Settings

Settings are now grouped by similar type or function.
Hovering over a section will show a ? which can be clicked for detailed information about the settings in that section

Details

The details page shows the following information about the configuration:

  • Shows if the configuration was cloned from another configuration
  • Edited on date and time
  • Last used date and time
  • Created by user

Testing Changes

New functionality added to SSV's version of SWEB is the Test feature. When editing items in a configuration, you can test the definitions in place. The Test button is on the right-hand of the definition window of an item in a configuration.

Opening the test window will push the definition to the left of the screen and bring up a place to input a document to analyze. Analyze a single document or up to 10 different documents. Run the test by entering text and clicking Run Test.

🚧

Running Tests Consumes Account Credits

The test feature will highlight only the item that you are testing within the document. Processing time can be affected by document size and the number of test documents.
