DiscretizationMethod Element (ASSL)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

Defines the method to be used for discretization.

  
<DimensionAttribute> <!-- or ScalarMiningStructureColumn -->  
   ...  
   <DiscretizationMethod>...</DiscretizationMethod>  
   ...  
</DimensionAttribute>  

CharacteristicDescription
Data type and lengthString (enumeration)
Default valueNone
Cardinality0-1: Optional element that can occur once and only once.
RelationshipElement
Parent elementsDimensionAttribute, ScalarMiningStructureColumn
Child elementsNone

The value of the DiscretizationMethod element determines how values for the DimensionAttribute or ScalarMiningStructureColumn are discretized, or organized into a specific set of groups. For more information about discretization methods, see Discretization Methods (Data Mining).

The value of this element is limited to one of the strings in the following table.

ValueDescription
AutomaticEquivalent to the AUTOMATIC discretization method for mining structure columns.
EqualAreasEquivalent to the EQUAL_AREAS discretization method for mining structure columns.
ClustersEquivalent to the CLUSTERS discretization method for mining structure columns.
ThresholdsEquivalent to the THRESHOLDS discretization method for mining structure columns.
EqualRangesEquivalent to the EQUAL_RANGES discretization method for mining structure columns.

The enumeration corresponding to the allowed values for DiscretizationMethod in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is DiscretizationMethod.
