Criteria Types


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

The configuration options for a criterion depend on the criteria type. The following criteria types are supported:

  • Histograms

    A histogram displays a numerical property which produced meaningful analysis information during modeled analysis execution.

  • Categoricals

    The categorical criteria editor is used for the following criteria types when they have no more than eight groupings:

  • Long Categoricals

    If the number of elements for a categorical criterion is greater than eight, it becomes impractical to visualize this criterion as a bar chart. Instead, the criterion is displayed as a long categorical.

  • Strings

    The string criteria editor is used for text criteria available on the Data fields tab.

  • Numbers

    The number criteria editor is used for numerical criteria available on the Data fields tab.

  • Dates and Times

    The date and time criteria editor is used for date and time criteria available on the Data fields tab. Use it to configure criteria for a range of dates and times or perform standard comparison tests against date and time values.

  • Aggregating Data

    For string, number, and date and time criteria fields that belong to a repeating structure (such as a list of purchases), you can select the Occurrences search operator to aggregate the criteria values.

  • Selecting Criteria Values from a List

    For string and number criteria available on the Data fields tab, you can select the In list search operator to view, search for, and select filter values for the criterion from a list of possible values.
