Operator ToolboxOperator Toolbox

This extension couples some useful additional operators together.

This extension adds a bunch of new operators to RapidMiner. They range from utility operators to improve the flexibility and usability of the process design, over additional outlier detection algorithm and additional performance criteria to advanced analysis methods like Local Interpretation or the SMOTE algorithm.

Since 2.6.0 the extension also adds new functions to the expression parser. These function can be used in operators like 'Generate Attributes', 'Filter Examples', 'Create ExampleSet'.

The extension provides the following additional functions to the expression parser:

  • Fuzzy Matching:

    • fuzzy_match ( Nominal first, Nominal second, Constant method )

  • * Adding an option to SMOTE to not append to the original data set but only return artificial examples.
  • Changed the role of the id attribute introduced in 2.16 in Generate Session id to metadata, not id anymore because this would drop other ids. Added Compability levels so that you still get the old behaviour for old processes.
  • Added an error message for Generate Session ID if there was already an id present.

Version 2.16.0 (2023-08-23)

  • Added an operator Subset Modeling, which allows you to build one meta model on subsets of the same data set.
  • Adding a new operator Loop (While) which allows a while loop with an expression based break criterium.

      rights for legacy server repositories

    • Updated the version of the yahoo finance lib to fix a bug which only appears for US Ips

Version 2.13.0 (2022-02-23)

Version 2.12.0 (2021-10-06)

  • New Operator: Subprocess (Parallel)
    • Allows the explicit parallelization of subprocesses (parallel execution capabilities are still limited by the license).
  • Improvements:
    • Execute Remote Program now also provides the error output, fails by default if the error code is not 0 and can log the results in the process log file.
  • Bugfixes:
    • Fixed an error in Extract Topics from Data/Documents (LDA), which created errors when using optimize - Fixed a bug that Detect Outliers (Univariate) does not have proper meta data.
    • Bugfix for Merge Attributes operator. Reduced the general memory allocation of the Merge Attributes operator after it is executed
      • This bug could cause, that not finished process instances (and possible large parallel executions of the operator) could run into memory leaks

  • Enhancements

    • Tukey Test operator now has an option to ignore missing values.

    • The color and icons of all outlier operators are changed to indicate for the modelling aspect of this types of operators

    • The scoring of LDA Models (trained by Extract Topics from Data (LDA) and Extract Topics from Documents (LDA)) was adapted, so that there aren't any differences between scoring in the training or the application of the models.

      • Results of LDA can differ on an insignificant level to previous versions
