Algorithm Element (ASSL)

Defines the algorithm used by a MiningModel element.


Characteristic Description

Data type and length


Default value



1-1: Required element that can occur once and only once.

Relationship Element

Parent element


Child elements


The value of the Algorithm element is a string that identifies the algorithm. For example, the string could be Microsoft_Naive_Bayes, Microsoft_Decision_Trees, or Microsoft_Clustering. The string identifies algorithms supplied by Microsoft and custom algorithms supplied by the user. Available values for the Algorithm element can be retrieved from the SERVICE_NAME column of the DMSCHEMA_MINING_SERVICES schema rowset.

The element that corresponds to the parent of Algorithm in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is MiningModel. A closely related element in the AMO object model is MiningModelAlgorithms.
