Understand the Key Elements in a Project

Project cannot be created separately. Therefore, there are no dedicated steps to create a project.
A project includes all your project elements,

  • Workbook
  • Workflow
  • Models
  • Dashboard

Consider adding your dataset first that can be used in your workbook or workflow. You can also add dataset at any point of time. For adding a dataset, refer to Adding a Dataset. This dataset can be used in the project to do the processing.

(info) Note:

The project can only be created or selected while creating a Workbook or a Workflow.

Workbook

A Workbook is an experimental canvas, where you can perform various experiments with algorithms. You can train your datasets here, which you can later use in workflows. All the trial and testing to create a list of learned datasets can be performed with rubistudio. It allows you to perform preprocessing, textual processing, cleaning, transformation, and so on. Most ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) tasks can be done in workbook. When you publish the model in a workbook, it is added as a model in the models' section.

Workflow

A Workflow is where you run the final algorithm. All tested flows, which have learned data are used here and deployed onto the production. You can use your trained model on real-time data. It also allows you to schedule your workflow to run on a specific date and time. The schedule Workflow automatically runs and notifies you at the selected schedule.

Models

A Model contains all your published workflows. They reduce the time spent on building your workflows. These models are reused as a set of algorithms in new projects. When the model is published in workbook, it is listed in the models' section.

Dashboard

A Dashboard is a Graphical User Interface (GUI), which displays all the key performance indicators at a glance. In short, it is a progress report generated to gauge the performance of a process, business, and so on. The data is represented in different types of charts as reports, these reports are collated under a common criterion to represent it as a dashboard.
It is an interactive platform, where the insights and outcomes of a successfully run model are displayed.

Understanding Project Display Pane

The project display pane displays the projects created in the selected workspace.
You can perform the list of actions as mentioned below. Visit the respective section for more information.

To view the project display pane. Follow the step given below.

It displays the list of recently created projects for the selected workspace.

The recently created or updated project is shown first in the list. It displays the name of the person who has updated the project along with the date when it is updated.

2.

It allows you to search the required project.

You can search your project by typing text in this field. Partial text is also allowed. Refer to Searching a Project.

3.

It allows you to sort projects.

The projects can be sorted as recently created/updated order or alphabetical order.

4.

It allows you to import project

A project can be imported in a .DAT file format only. To import a project, refer to Importing a Project.

5.

It allows you to perform Edit, Export, Delete actions.

Click the ellipsis to perform the required action.

6.

It allows you to add the project as favorite.

  • Click the Star icon to add the project as favorite (It is removed from favorite if it is already added in favorite).
  • It helps to bookmark your important or frequently used projects.
  • On the home page, click Favorites to view projects that are marked as favorite.


  Importing a Project


The project can be imported only if you have a .DAT file in your system. If you don't have any, then you can export an existing project and then import the project.

(info)

Notes:

  • Projects can be imported as a .DAT file only.
  • Make sure to import the datasets that are used in the project.
  • The workbooks and workflows will not work, if the datasets associated with the projects are not imported.

To import a project, follow the steps given below.

  1. On the home page, click Projects.
    Recent Projects for the selected workspace are displayed.


    Figure: Projects in current Workspace
    Click Import Project icon (  ).
  2. Browse to the location of project on your computer, select the required project, and then click Open.
    The project is imported and a confirmation message is displayed.
    The imported project is shown first in the list.

    (info)Note:

    If you try to import a project which is not a .DAT file, it will prompt you to select a valid project file or your project creation fails.

Performing Project Tasks

Opening a Project

You can open a project and further continue to work in the workbook or workflow present in the project.

(info) Note:

Make sure you are in the correct workspace, which includes your project that you want to open.

To open a project, follow the steps given below.

  1. Open the Workspace that includes your project. Refer to Changing Workspace.
  2. On the home page, click Projects.
    Recent Projects for the selected workspace are displayed.

    (info) Note:

    You can sort the projects by Recent or Alphabetical.


    Figure: Opening a Project
  3. Click the project that you want to open from the list.
    The Workflows, Workbooks, Dashboards, or Models, if present any, are displayed.

Figure: Elements Present in a Project

(info)Notes:

  • The number in the brackets () denotes the number of workflows, workbooks, dashboards, or models present.
  • Click ( ) to view the workflows, workbooks, dashboards, or models present.
  • From the list displayed, you can click the respective workflow, workbook, dashboard, or model to open them in a new tab.

Searching a Project

You can search for a project by its name. It is especially helpful when the project list is long.

(info) Note:

Make sure you are in the correct Workspace, which includes the Project that you want to search.
