Available beta features#

Intel creation in the graph#

This feature enables you to create entities and entity relationships directly in a graph. This is a major workflow improvement. Previously, users had to navigate to another page in EclecticIQ Intelligence Center to create entities and relationships, and then they had to import them into the graph as a separate step.


Risk description

Risk type

Risk likelihood

Users may inadvertently alter data through lack of familiarity with the new beta feature.

Feature toggle risk


In case of issues during data migration, older data might become inaccessible.

Specifically, older graphs or visuals might not render properly after migration.

In addition, entities created with the new beta feature may not work properly if the beta feature toggle is switched off after creating the entities.

Intel creation risk


Data integrity may be lost between versions.

Specifically, users may save or open an existing graph with a beta feature enabled, but then the same graph may stop working if the beta feature is disabled.

Mitigation risk


Known Limitations#

  • If you create a draft entity in a graph, the draft is not saved to Intelligence > All intelligence > Draft, which is where drafts are normally kept.

  • Removing a draft from a graph is permanent. You cannot retrieve a draft entity created while in a graph.

  • Entities lacking required fields can be published using the publish (Publish) button in a graph’s top navigation bar, but not using the entity’s own Publish button (available when you double-click the entity to display its detail pane).

    To publish an entity using the latter method, you need to assign values to all of its required fields. Publishing entities without required fields has no impact on outgoing feeds.

  • In a graph, if you create a relationship with a published entity that has a draft and then, after the relationship was created, you publish the graph using the publish (Publish) button in the top navigation bar, the relationship is removed from the graph and deleted from EclecticIQ Intelligence Center.

  • In a graph, you can edit an entity that has a draft by selecting the Edit option from its right-click context menu. However, you cannot save your changes.

  • In a graph, you can double-click an entity that has a draft to open its detail pane, but you cannot edit the entity’s details.

  • When you edit the type of a relationship, some of the options displayed in the drop-down menu may not apply to the entities concerned.

Knowledge packs creation#

Enabling (Beta) Knowledge packs creation allows your Intelligence Center instance to act as a knowledge pack producer.

For more information, see Knowledge packs.
