Documents how to create a new project.
The Mapping Tool requires an administrative user and at least one project to exist in order to function. If no project exists, either:
- Import a map project (see Map Project Import and Export), or
- Create a new map administrator, which will automatically create a blank project if none exist (see Creating an Administrative User).
Creating new projects requires at least two terminologies to be loaded (i.e. the source and destination terminologies)..
Creating a New Project
- Log in as an administrative user
- Go to the Application Administration widget
- Click on Map Projects
If projects already exist, scroll down below the paginated list of projects to the interface for creating new map projects:
Enter the parameters describing this map project
|Map Project Name||The name of the project. Must be unique.|
|Source Terminology and Version||The source terminology and version, selected from the calculated list of loaded terminologies|
|Destination Terminology and Version||The destination terminology and version, selected from the calculated list of loaded terminologies|
|Ref Set Id|
The terminology id of the source concept describing this project. Must be unique.
Whether this project contains records published outside of the current editing cycle
|Rule Based||Whether concept mappings use rules|
|Group Based||Whether concept mappings can have multiple groups|
|Public||If "true", any user (including guests) can view publication-ready content for this project.|
If "false", only assigned Specialists and Leads, as well as administrators, can view content for this project.
|Scope Descendants||Whether to calculate descendants for the defined scope list (see Setting Project Scope).|
|Scope Excluded Descendants||Whether to calculate descendants for the defined scope excluded list (see Setting Project Scope).|
|Propagated||Whether this project up-propagates descendant records for writing at release time|
|Propagated Threshold||The number of descendants for a concept at which propagation is no longer applied |
(e.g. for a value of "11", records with 10 or fewer descendants will be up-propgated.
Not used if "Propagated" is false.
