Remote Repositories

To understand the relation between projects and the various types of repository, see the RapidMiner Studio documentation.

You work with a remote Repository on RapidMiner AI Hub in the same way as you work with a local Repository.

Open RapidMiner Studio. Once you have created the Repository, establish the connection from within RapidMiner Studio by clicking the plus sign to expand:

You can easily manage processes, models, and data within and between Repositories. Right-click an object to display the menu of available commands:

The following table describes the menu options that result from right-clicking a Repository, folder, file, process, data, and model:

Option Description
Open Opens a process in the Process panel; opens data in the Results view.
Store Process Here Saves the process to the selected location.
Rename Provides a dialog for renaming the object.
Create Folder Creates a folder within the selected Repository or folder.
Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete Applies the accepted actions to the selected object.
Copy Location to Clipboard Pastes the path used in the operator, For example, in a Store operator it may paste //DocsRepo/configuration/queues.xml.
Refresh Refreshes the Repository panel; use this after running a process on RapidMiner AI Hub so that the results display in the Repository listing.
Edit Access Rights Adds or removes users from the resource.
Browse Opens a new browser tab and shows the object (folder, process, etc.) in the RapidMiner AI Hub web interface.
Configure Repository Opens the RapidMiner AI Hub configuration dialog, where you can change and test connection settings as well as enter user credentials for accessing RapidMiner AI Hub.
Store ExampleSet in Repository Stores the data in the Results view in the selected Repository.
Store n in Repository Stores the tree or model in the selected Repository.

Right-clicking a process adds 3 additional options:

Option Description
Start new revision Takes a snapshot of the selected process and links it to a new version number. This allows you to change and save the process without losing the earlier content. That is, if you edit a process and click on the revision action, RapidMiner creates a second version with the new content. Any changes to the Repository process entry won’t affect the stored process versions. The different versions of the process can be restored and viewed with the History panel.
Show history Displays the revision history for the process.
Run Process on AI Hub Starts the selected process on the RapidMiner AI Hub instance.

Let’s say you create a new process with the content X. If you now click on the described action the current content will be snapshotted and linked to a version number – let’s say 1.

Create folders

To create folders within a remote Repository, right click on the parent folder and select Create Folder:

Enter a folder name in the resulting dialog and click ok Icon OK.

A sample best practice would be to create a folder for the project that you are working on, then create sub-folders “data,” “processes,” and, if required, “models,” “apps,” etc.

Store a process remotely

To store a process in the remote Repository, right-click the destination folder and select Store Process Here:

Enter a process name in the resulting dialog and click ok Icon OK.

Store data remotely

To store data in the remote Repository, run the process. From the Results perspective, right-click the results tab and select Store ExampleSet in Repository:

Browse to the Repository location, enter a name for the result set, and click ok Icon OK.

Store models remotely

To store a a model or decision tree in the remote Repository, run the process. From the Results perspective, right-click the model tab and select Store Tree in Repository:

Browse to the Repository location, enter a name for the model, and click ok Icon OK.
