Vocabularies - ABO

Back Office User Guide

Reference Guide

The AFS Back Office makes it possible to manage all the vocabularies for a service instance. With the AFS-BO Vocabularies referentials function, users can deal with those critical elements for the AFS Pipes and Filters part of their search solution. In AFS, vocabularies are files modeled in SKOS.

Each time a PaF (Pipe and Filter) process is launched, AFS checks the latest published vocabularies available in AFS-BO. It is then necessary to add the desired vocabularies to the PaF configuration. For more information see Configuration chapter.

The Vocabularies List screen is accessible clicking the Setup > Vocabularies for a service in the Dashboard.

When necessary, filters may be selected to refine the display, as described in Filtering Application Main Screen Information. The Vocabularies List screen is updated accordingly.


The vocabularies list is a table giving an overview on the vocabularies in place for the selected service:
