Is Dynamic Taxonomy Generation possible?

Hi All,

I need to findout if this can be done. I'm hoping to further refine a taxonomy via document metadata. The root level (1st Folder) of the taxonomy with the associations to the index would be created. But then any further subcategories would be created on the fly by information stored within the repository documents.

An example using Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species below:

A taxonomy named Kindom is created and associated with an Index and Repository. "Some utility" then reads all the documents in the repository. These documents would store a parameter such as (Kingdom.Phylum.Class.Order) in their metadata. That taxonomy structure of (Phylum.Class.Order) is then created by the system and added to the Kingdom Taxonomy that was previously created by the Admin, and the document in question is then stored under the final folder in this example the Order node. The system then continues to read each document and create any other sub-categorizing needed to properly store each document.

A variation on this would be to only have certain "category documents" that store new sub-category information, theses documents would get read first and create the extra taxonomy structure. The remaining documents are then associated with the categories in a normal manner.

Hi Dan,

to summarize:

Generation of a navigation structure based on properties and property values, right?

Stay tuned...we are working to get something like that into KM soon. The TREX engine has the technology ready ("Guided Search") and the work to get it into the UI is ongoing.

Hi Thomas,

it's still on the NetWeaver roadmap.

It will latest be included in the next major release of SAP NetWeaver. Sorry...no more I can say at this point.
