Creating a hosted Djinn account

To get started with Djinn, if you do not want to host your own instance, you can create an account on the hosted instance of Djinn.
After you create and activate your account, you create a Djinn workspace and provide the data to use in that workspace.
Djinn then prompts you to use the source data to create, train, and export a model.

Create and activate your account

To create your account:
  1. 2.
    On the login page, click Create Account.
  2. 3.
    Provide your email address and the password that you want to use for Djinn. The email address must use a corporate email domain. You cannot use an email address that uses a public email domain such as
  3. 4.
    Click Create Account.
    Djinn sends an activation link to the email address that you provided. You must activate your account before you can continue.

Provide a name for your workspace

After you create and activate your account, you are prompted to create a workspace. A workspace contains a set of data models that you train on your data.
In the field provided, enter the name to use for your first workspace, then click Next.

Invite other users to Djinn

Under Invite Others to Djinn, you can optionally invite other users with the same email domain.
For each user to invite, enter the email address, then click Invite.
To continue, click Next.

Add data to your workspace

Next, you provide the data to use for your models. Djinn uses the data as the source data in the workspace.
You can either:

Uploading CSV files

You can use CSV files to provide the data for the workspace.
  1. 1.
    Under Data source, click Upload CSV.
  2. 2.
    Click Next.
  3. 3.
    On the Add Dataset Files panel, upload and configure your files. The Add Dataset Files panel contains the same file upload and configuration options as the Edit Workspace page. See Uploading CSV files.
  4. 4.
    Click Submit.
If Djinn is able to upload the file, then Djinn displays the Getting Started page, which provides a checklist to guide you through creating, training, and exporting a model.

Connecting to an existing database

You can connect to an existing database.
  1. 1.
    Under Data source, click Connect to Database.
  2. 2.
    Click Next.
  3. 3.
    Click the type of database to use, then click Next.
  4. 4.
    Provide the connection information for the database. See Connecting to an existing database.
  5. 5.
    Click Submit.
If Djinn is able to connect to the database, then Djinn displays the Getting Started page, which provides a checklist to guide you through creating, training, and exporting a model.

Using a sample data set

Djinn provides a couple of sample data sets that you can use to explore Djinn. The sample data sets come with pre-built models.
To use one of these data sets in your initial workspace:
  1. 1.
    Under Data source, click View Samples.
  2. 2.
    Click the sample dataset to use.
  3. 3.
    Click Next.
Djinn displays the Models page with the example model.

Complete other required tasks

After you set up your account, before you train and export a model, remember to also perform the following tasks:

Create, train, and export a model

After you create a workspace and connect to your data, Djinn displays the Getting Started page, which contains a model checklist to guide you through:
  • Creating your first model
  • Training the model
  • Exporting the trained model
To close the model checklist, click Skip and close Getting Started.
To reopen the checklist:
  1. 1.
    Click your user image at the top right.
  2. 2.
    In the menu, select Getting Started.

Create a model

From the model checklist, to configure a new model, in the Define step, click Edit Model.
Djinn displays the model configuration page for a new model. See Configuring a model.
After you complete the configuration, click Save.
Djinn returns you to the model checklist and marks the Define step as completed.

Train the model

The next step is to train the model, to generate data based on the model configuration.
To train the model, in the Train step, click Train Model.
Djinn starts the model training job. When the job completes, Djinn marks the Train step as completed.
For information about how to view the results, see Reviewing the training results.

Export the trained model

When the model training is complete, you can use the export option to export or sample data from the trained model in order to perform further analysis on the generated data.
To export the trained model, in the Export Sample step, click Export Data.
Djinn displays the Export Model panel, and marks the Export step as completed.
For details about the export options, see Exporting a model.
