Process a Mining Structure

Before you can browse or work with the mining models that are associated with a mining structure, you have to deploy the Analysis Services project and process the mining structure and mining models. Also, if you make a change to the mining structure or mining models, you will be prompted to redeploy and process them. Processing the structure in the Mining Structure tab of Data Mining Designer in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) processes all the associated models.

You can process a mining structure by using these tools:

  • SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT)

  • SQL Server Management Studio

  • XMLA: Process command

    For information about how to process individual models, see Process a Mining Model.

To process a mining structure and all associated mining models using SQL Server Data Tools

  1. Select Process Mining Structure and All Models from the Mining Model menu item in SQL Server Data Tools.

    If you made changes to the structure, you will be prompted to redeploy the structure before processing the models. Click Yes.

  2. Click Run in the Processing Mining Structure - <structure> dialog box.

    The Process Progress dialog box opens to display the details of model processing.

  3. Click Close in the Process Progress dialog box after the models have completed processing.

  4. Click Close in the Processing Mining Structure - <structure> dialog box.
