Manual Overview

PARTproject -> Extras -> Additional modules -> Class systems: map... opens the dialog box Map class systems (see following figure).

Using mapping, you can move the class information within one class system into another. This way you can map your own class system onto a previously existent one for example or you can simply classify a catalog with eClass 6.0, which is already classified with eClass 5.1.

On the left side all available class systems are displayed. In the second level all class systems,, which have already been mapped, are displayed in black color (all others without mapping in gray).

On the right side you can see the actual assignment of elements (separated for classes and attributes).

The colors have the following meaning:

Entries without suggestions
Entries with available suggestions
Entries with defined mapping
Entries with defined multiple mappings

Manual editing happens via context menu commands.

Furthermore you have the opportunity to start a search for single entries once again in an already existing mapping, in order to limit or expand the suggestions with the help of a changed search strategy.

A wizard guides through the available strategies. Currently the Levenshtein algorithm is available, which performs s similarity search based on strings. Thereby names, descriptions, IDs, etc. can be compared. Furthermore for eClass mappings special mapping files can be used.

Storage location

The mapping files are stored under $CADENAS_DATA\datasetup\classsystem\<classification name>\<classification name>_mapfile.xml and <classification name>_varmapfile.xml.

Add projects to classification

In order to implement the mapping, in PARTproject, on the desired directory level, via context menu command Automation -> Add projects to classification the mapping has to be assigned to the desired classification. Not before this step is performed, the projects are linked with the new mapped class system.

Context menu: Automation -> Add projects to classification

Context menu: Automation -> Add projects to classification

The dialog box Add projects to classification is opened.

Other classification

Other classification

Take attributes from class

Take attributes from class

[Note] Note

In the list field under Other classification only then entries are displayed, if there are mappings available for the desired classification.
