Association rule mining



I have applied association rule mining using the apriori node, I have a question related to this it has generated over a 100 rules for my dataset how can I reduce the amount of rules it has generated.

Can anyone help please.

Thank you 


Hello Uzma,

you can reduce the numRule and increase the minMetric parameters.

Let me know if this works.


how would i do that not quite sure?

There are two parameters in  the configuration-dialog.

The numRules-parameter sets the minimum number of rules you want to get from the node.

The minMetric-parameter sets the minimum value for the specificied metric the rules have to suffice. The default is confidence, so a high value (close to 1.0) means your rules hold for almost all records that have the given conditional.
