Setting up your environment

Suggest edit Updated on March 11, 2021

System architects can perform a number of optional tasks, such as configuring the default application context for models and other Prediction Studio records or selecting an internal database where Prediction Studio records are stored. Prediction Studio also allows you to enable outcome inferencing and configure the model transparency policy.

By default, transitions to Prediction Studio from Dev Studio are disabled, which means that all rules open in Dev Studio. You can configure the EnableDevStudioTransitions dynamic system setting to enable such transitions.

Note: Perform the following tasks only if you are a system architect or you have been authorized.
  • Setting access to Prediction Studio

    Use the Prediction Studio to create, update, and monitor machine learning models. To access the portal, add the pxPredictionStudio portal to your access group.

  • Changing your workspace

    For the complete and multidimensional development of your application, switch from one workspace to another to change the tools and features that are available in your work environment. For example, you can create resources such as job schedulers in Dev Studio, and then manage and monitor those resources in Admin Studio.

  • Specifying a repository for Prediction Studio models

    Enable creating and storing machine-learning models in your application by specifying a resilient repository for model training and historical data.

  • Specifying a database for Prediction Studio records

    Specify an internal database to enable Prediction Studio to read and write data when building predictive models.

  • Configuring the default rule context

    You can configure the default application context for models and other resources that are related to model development.

  • Enabling outcome inferencing

    When enabled, the outcome inferencing feature allows you to support Prediction Studio projects with additional data analysis steps that help you to handle unknown behavior.

  • Analyzing example projects and models in Prediction Studio

    Prediction Studio contains examples of predictive analytics projects, classification models, and sentiment models that are pre-installed. These projects are intended to be simple starting points to understand the functionality for each model type. You can access the example projects from the Predictions navigation panel.

  • Clearing deleted models in Prediction Studio

    Use this option for occasional housekeeping of machine learning models. Clear models that are obsolete and you do not need them anymore. After you delete a model in Prediction Studio, you can still restore the rule instances in Dev Studio that also retrieves the associated machine learning models. When you clear deleted models, you remove all the data that was associated with the deleted models and you cannot restore the models.
