Create a dataset to collect events

Before creating an AI model, you need to create a dataset where conversion events will be collected. Start by creating the schema that will be used in your dataset:

  1. From the Data Management menu, select Schema, go to the Browse tab and click Create schema.

  2. Choose XDM ExperienceEvent.

    NOTE

    Learn more on XDM schemas and fields groups in the XDM System overview documentation.

  3. From the Field groups section on the left, select Add.

  4. In the Search field, type “proposition interaction” and select the Experience Event - Proposition Interactions field group.

    CAUTION

    The schema that will be used in your dataset must have the Experience Event - Proposition Interactions field group associated with it. Otherwise you will not be able to use it in your ranking strategy.

  5. Click Add field groups.

    NOTE

    Field group was previously known as mixin.

  6. Type a name and save the schema.

NOTE

Learn more on building schemas in Basics of schema composition.

You’re now ready to create a dataset using this schema. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. From the Data Management menu, select Datasets, go to the Browse tab and click Create dataset.

  2. Select Create dataset from schema.

  3. Select the schema you just created from the list.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Provide a unique name for the dataset in the Name field and click Finish.

The dataset is now ready to be selected to collect event data when creating a ranking strategy.
